Abstract

The 24-hour knowledge factory paradigm facilitates collaborative effort between geographically distributed offshore teams. The concept of handoff, along with the vertical segregation of tasks, enables software development teams to work on a continuous basis on the project. This notion is made possible through efficient knowledge representation, as the process of handoff essentially entails all work completed to be transferred from one site to the next. Data management is one of the key parameters that defines the success of this business model and is achieved through leveraging of specific tools, models, and concepts.

Keywords: data management, global software development, knowledge representation, offshoring
