Toward a Framework for Localisation of Product Software across Organisational Boundaries

Toward a Framework for Localisation of Product Software across Organisational Boundaries
Toward a Framework for Localisation of Product Software across Organisational Boundaries
Distributed agile development (DAD) is a current trend for software development. It uses agile practices to promote iteration and flexibility in the distributed development of software projects. DAD involves a software vendor and their customers working together, leading to an overlap between their organisations. In this report, which is a progress report submitted for continuation towards a PhD, we introduce the agile software development and propose a framework for the localisation of software products across organisational and cultural boundaries. The framework addresses and accommodates the key components of the area between software vendors and customers. Our approach is useful in that it helps project managers, stakeholders and developers to understand the correlations and critical factors associated with customers and software vendors. This framework tries to cover all the important aspects of the development of agile software across distributed organisational cultures instead of focusing on a specific aspect such as project management.

Abstract

Distributed agile development (DAD) is a current trend for software development. It uses agile practices to promote iteration and flexibility in the distributed development of software projects. DAD involves a software vendor and their customers working together, leading to an overlap between their organisations. In this report, which is a progress report submitted for continuation towards a PhD, we introduce the agile software development and propose a framework for the localisation of software products across organisational and cultural boundaries. The framework addresses and accommodates the key components of the area between software vendors and customers. Our approach is useful in that it helps project managers, stakeholders and developers to understand the correlations and critical factors associated with customers and software vendors. This framework tries to cover all the important aspects of the development of agile software across distributed organisational cultures instead of focusing on a specific aspect such as project management.
