Improving Global Software Development Tools to Facilitate Distributed Agile Development
Using Agile processes within distributed teams is becoming common in many software development environments. Yet, it is certain that the globally distributed teams will result in problems as well as benefits. This paper attempts to discern how GSD (Global Software Development) tools can be improved to better support distributed Agile processes by implementing a virtual task board prototype. From our research, we could draw the conclusion that virtual task boards are crucial feature for task management GSD tools and additional advantages can be achieved by implementing this feature on top of an existing collaboration and document management platform.
