Research status: current , date: Started January 2007

People

Rajesh Balan

Narayan Ramasubbu

Marcello Cataldo, Carnegie Mellon University

Summary
One of the side effects of globalization has been the migration of software development to offshore locations. However, does this migration actually help or hurt in terms of efficiency, errors, etc?

Details
We analyze the offshore development of various companies. Through our analysis, we hope to better understand the trade-offs involved in offshore software development.
