ABSTRACT
A systematic review of global software engineering (GSE) literature from 2000 to 2007 shows the field to be immature. Studies report many challenges but little evidence regarding specific GSE practices directly related to project success or failure. There is evidence that distance matters and, furthermore, that GSE--although driven by cost-reduction goals--seldom brings immediate cost savings.
