A Strategy for Treat with Socio-cultural Aspects in Software Distributed Development

Paulo Henrique Soares, Elisa Hatsue Moriya Huzita, Tania Fatima Calvi Tait

Abstract

Distributed development of software (DDS) has been gaining ground among companies that develop, as they saw the DDS a great opportunity to reduce project costs. However, due to the distribution of teams, there are some problems that do not exist in traditional development co-located, such as differences in time zones, different languages, lack of team spirit, inadequate infrastructure, among other challenges often generated by socio-cultural differences between the participants. This article is just the presentation of these challenges, evaluating their effects on the development process as well as presenting a strategy to minimize them, so do not compromise the outcome of the project.
