"Global Software Development: 

the realisation of the benefits"



Invited speaker:

Eoin Ó Conchúir


9th November 2009 - 2.30-3.30 - LRG-032




Software development in itself is a complex process. Global software development (GSD) magnifies those complexities, as it involves people coordinating across significant geographical, temporal and socio-cultural distances to develop software systems. Despite its challenges, GSD has been said to bring with it a range of benefits. For example, companies can tap into new expanding lower-cost employment markets offering thousands of skilled graduates, through the medium of Internet communication technologies. This talk will compare how two multinational companies with development sites in Ireland are approaching GSD, and to what extent they are realising the potential benefits in practice.




Eoin Ó Conchúir conducted his doctoral research at Lero, and has since worked at an Internet marketing agency, and is currently a web developer at the Localisation Research Centre at the University of Limerick.
