Achieving true collaboration in global development

Globalization has given organizations around the world unprecedented access to personnel and to marketplaces. For some, this has meant the growth of the distributed organization with staff located across the world. For others, globalization has meant the routine outsourcing of functions that only a few years ago were considered core capabilities. Still others combine the practices.

Most find that the benefits of working globally are many, including savings in time and money and the ability to take advantage of skills that may not be available locally. But outsourcing and its related practice, global distributed development (GDD)-in which teams of software developers who may be either employees or outsourced workers are located across geographies.also present challenges.

Among them are the need to evolve architectures, relationships, cultures, and decision-making routines in ways that enable the organization to reap business benefits. Download this paper to learn about our IBM solutions for achieving true collaboration in global development.
