Devel­op­ing soft­ware for the world has unique chal­lenges and can add tremen­dous growth and value to a company’s bot­tom line. In today’s fast-paced and eco­nom­i­cally chal­leng­ing busi­ness envi­ron­ment, soft­ware com­pa­nies have very lit­tle room to make costly mis­takes or to miss out on global oppor­tu­ni­ties. The goal of the panel dis­cus­sion is to stim­u­late debate on a vari­ety of soft­ware devel­op­ment, glob­al­iza­tion, inter­na­tion­al­iza­tion and local­iza­tion related issues. Panel mem­bers will dis­cuss real-world best prac­tices and answer and dis­cuss ques­tions from the audience.
