Requirement gathering, Globally Distributed Development (GSD), Virtual Teams, Offshore Outsourcing, Challenges, Major problems in RE
Due to the greater availability of skilled software engineers, organizations are increasingly adopting Global Software Development, at relatively lesser costs. Software process in such distributed teams have turned out to be progressively more viable for numerous reasons, due to better communication technologies and maturity level of software industry. However organizations adopting Global Software Development must take into consideration that it is not a risk-free action, as many failures related to it have been reported.
There are a number of challenges when existing tools of globally distributed projects are adopted. Upon deep evaluation of requirement analysis during interactive phase, particular consideration must be given to the requirements of clients and distributed software provider teams which are globally dispersed. In this paper, we present realistic insights gathered from carrying out surveys from IT professionals and people working in the software industry. Moreover, extensive examination of the literature work previously done in this regard is also documented in our paper. The objective of our paper is to get a clear idea about the major factors and challenges faced by the team members of the globally distributed team. After identification of these key factors, based on the results of our survey, we have endeavored to present an analysis on how to overcome these challenges.
