Globalization of the software industry: Trends and strategies
Date of Original Version
The major trends and strategies associated with the incipient globalization process in the software industry are explored. Particular attention is given to the newly industralizing countries (NICs) vis-à-vis advanced countries (ACs). First, some trends that are especially significant from a global perspective are examined. Next, a preliminary analytical framework is presented to organize the rather limited existing knowledge about globalization of the software business. Following this, global software strategies from NIC and AC perspectives are discussed. Finally, some tentative conclusions and future research needs are identified. © 1989.
