  • Fitzgerald, Brian (Blackwell Publishing, 1996)
    Systems development issues occupy a position of central importance in the information systems field and, indeed, much has been prescribed in the quest for successful systems development. However, given the well-documented ...
  • Feller, Joseph; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2000)
    Open Source Software (OSS) has become the subject of much commercial interest of late. Certainly, OSS seems to hold much promise in addressing the core issues of the software crisis, namely that of software taking too long ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian; Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Lings, Brian; Lundell, Bjorn; Ó Conchúir, Eoin (Austrian Computer Society, 2005)
    In this paper we present an overview of the field of distributed development of software systems and applications (DD). Based on an analysis of the published literature, we consider threats to communication, coordination ...
  • Haque, Rafiqul; Richardson, Ita; Whelan, Eoin; Taher, Yehia; Van den Heuvel, Willem-Jan; Tawbi, Samar (International Journal of Information Studies, 2011)
    Processes are the main constituents of public services and as such demand correct and complete execution. Increasingly however, governments feel the pressuring need to deliver public services more quickly and personalized ...
  • Ali Babar, Muhammad (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Software Architecture (SA) evaluation process requires a large number of stakeholders to be collocated for evaluation sessions. Given the increasing trend of using globally distributed software development teams, organizations ...
  • English, Michael; Buckley, Jim; Cahill, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    Previous research has highlighted the extensive use of the C++ friend construct in both library-based and application-based systems. However, existing software metrics do not concentrate on measuring friendship accurately, ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Lane, Michael; Conboy, Kieran (Agile Alliance, 2011)
    In the last several years there has been a noticeable focus shift of agile methods from eXtreme Programming (XP) and Scrum to Lean approaches, which is indicated as “from agile to lean”. However our understanding of the ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Vidgen, Richard (Palgrave McMillan, 2006)
    New technologies, notably service oriented architectures and web services, are enabling a third wave of business process management (BPM). Supporters claim that BPM is informed by complexity theory and that business ...
  • Feller, Joseph; Finnegan, Patrick; Fitzgerald, Brian; Hayes, Jeremy (INFORMS, 2008)
    Peer production phenomena such as open source software (OSS) have been posited as a viable alternative to traditional production models. However, community-based development often falls short of creating software “products” ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Coyle, Lorcan; O'Hare, G.M.P.; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Mobile sensors are an attractive proposition for environmental sensing, but pose significant engineering problems. Not least amongst these is the need to match the behaviour of the sensor platform to the physical environment ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Sterritt, Roy; Nixon, Paddy; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Efforts since 2001 to design self-managing systems have yielded many impressive achievements, yet the original vision of autonomic computing remains unfulfilled. Researchers must develop a comprehensive systems engineering ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (Springer-Verlag, 2011)
    Contemporary aerospace systems are complex conglomerates of components where control software drives rigid hardware to aid such systems meet their standards and safety requirements. The design and development of such systems ...
  • Sharif, Khaironi Yatim; Buckley, Jim (2009)
    Several authors have proposed information seeking as an appropriate perspective for studying software maintenance and evolution, and have characterized information seeking empirically in commercial software evolution ...
  • Conboy, Kieran; Morgan, Lorraine (Springer Verlag, 2010)
    A particular strength of agile approaches is that they move away from ‘introverted’ development and intimately involve the customer in all areas of development, supposedly leading to the development of a more innovative ...
  • Toosi, Farshad Ghassemi; Nikolov, Nikola S.; Eaton, Malachy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2016)
    We report on our findings using a genetic algorithm (GA) as a preprocessing step for force-directed graph drawings to find a smart initial vertex layout (instead of a random initial layout) to decrease the number of edge ...
  • Lopez, Tamara; Petre, Marian; Nuseibeh, Bashar (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Software rarely works as intended when it is initially written. Things go wrong, and developers are commonly understood to form theories and strategies to deal with them. Much of this knowledge relates to ephemeral flaws ...
  • Hashmi, Sajid Ibrahim (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    Global software development is a business model that involves software development distributed beyond national boundaries. However, distributed nature of the processes makes it very challenging to communicate and collaborate. ...
  • Deshpande, Sadhana; Beecham, Sarah; Richardson, Ita (Springer, 2011)
    Global software development (GSD) is often impeded by global distance which may be geographical, cultural, temporal or linguistic. When compared to a collocated setting, specific methods are required to coordinate a range ...
  • Noll, John; Beecham, Sarah; Richardson, Ita (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    While organisations recognise the advantages offered by global software development, there are many socio-technical barriers that affect successful collaboration in this inter-cultural environment. In this paper we present ...
  • Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Ó Conchúir, Eoin; Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian (IEEE Computer Society, 2006)
    Global software development (GSD) is a phenomenon that is receiving considerable interest from companies all over the world. In GSD, stakeholders from different national and organizational cultures are involved in developing ...
