In order to reduce labor costs, the amount of Offshore Software Development has increased recently. There is specific person called ‘Bridge SE’ in Offshore Software Development of Japanese Firms. Why do Japanese firms need ‘Bridge SEs’?
One researcher mentioned one important factor of software development issues; i.e. knowledge and know-how of software development in Japan is not accumulated or shared to all members within the development department. Isn't this issue still more difficult in Offshore Software Development of Japanese firms?
In my speech, I define why this situation exists and how it comes to be. Also I show the skills and knowledges of ‘Bridge SE’ which Japanese firms demand, and some issues which Japanese and Vietnamese firms have to solve.
