Collaboration and the Development Landscape Software and systems are essential to nearly every business. Global organizations require software solutions that span geographic boundaries, cultures, and business units and that comply with corporate governance mandates. Such global businesses must collaborate effectively and leverage existing investments, or lose out to competitors. This collaboration nearly always involves business partners and customers in defining - and sometimes even creating - software products. To compete in this climate, organizations must rethink the ways that they build and deliver software solutions.
