SOFTWARE OFFSHORE DEVELOPMENT - A Criteria Definition for References Models Comparison

Leonardo Pilatti, Jorge Luis Nicolas Audy

Abstract

Software development has been a challenge. This complexity significantly increases when company team member are working in an offshore environment. The need for a set of processes increases after every project, including those to organize the development strategy. Reference models, maturity models and frameworks can be found in literature trying to solve this problem. However, few comparative analysis have been done in order to validate the appropriate solution. The objective of this paper is to elaborate and define a set of criteria to perform a comparative analysis of the main global software development reference models, focusing the offshore development, having as basis an extensive literature review and a case study in industry. The case study was conducted in two different sites in Brazil.
