    Software Quality and Development Speed in Global Software Development Teams
    (Business & Information Systems Engineering: Vol. 57, No. 2, 2015) Alfaro, Iván; Chandrasekaran, Ranganathan
    The paper draws on information processing theory to propose that national diversity creates barriers to the integration of information among members of global software development teams, negatively impacting software quality and development speed. However, the effect of such relationships was expected to be contingent upon the amount of time that team members had worked together in the past (i.e., previous working ties). Hypotheses were tested in a field study involving 62 global software development teams distributed across Europe and Central and South America. Teams with high levels of previous working ties developed greater quality software at a faster pace. National diversity had a positive effect on software quality in teams with high levels of previous working ties, but a negative effect in teams with low levels of previous working ties. National diversity also had a negative impact on software development speed, but the effect was less pronounced among teams with high levels of previous working ties than on teams low in previous working ties.

    Legal Compatibility as a Characteristic of Sociotechnical Systems
    (Business & Information Systems Engineering: Vol. 57, No. 2, 2015) Hoffmann, Axel; Schulz, Thomas; Zirfas, Julia; Hoffmann, Holger; Roßnagel, Alexander; Leimeister, Jan Marco
    Legal compatibility as a characteristic of sociotechnical systems aims at the greatest possible compliance with higher-order legal goals for minimizing social risks of technical systems and extends legality, which refers to the prevention of lawlessness. The paper analyzes the criteria for legal compatibility by reviewing specifications of legally compatible systems and shows goals and resulting requirements to foster legal compatibility. These comprise the following areas: avoiding personal reference in data, ensuring information security, enabling freedom of decision, increasing transparency, ensuring traceability, and increasing usability, whereby traceability and the avoidance of personal reference pursue conflicting goals. The presentation of the goals including their dependencies, relationships, and conflicts in form of standardized requirements explains legal compatibility and summarizes the requirements necessary for the development of legally compatible systems.

    On the Sound Financial Valuation of Flexibility in Information Systems
    (Business & Information Systems Engineering: Vol. 57, No. 2, 2015) Dorsch, Christoph Sebastian
    Flexibility often represents the key area of value added by investing into an information system (IS) but also carries significant costs. Therefore, its quantitative financial valuation is of vital importance to make economically informed decisions about flexibility. This is challenging due to varying flexibility definitions and the complexity of the flexibility construct in itself. To address this challenge, this paper analyzes the scientific literature concerned with the financial valuation of flexibility in information systems (FIS). In the first part, it introduces fundamental requirements for a proper financial valuation, discusses the characteristics of FIS that are driving its economic value and identifies suitable financial valuation approaches. In the second part, a structured review of literature focusing on the application of FIS valuation analyzes to what extend the existing literature supports economically informed decisions within flexibility design. Further research is indicated with regard to dependencies between flexibility and the existing IS landscape as well as to a more structured and comprehensive approach to examine all interacting features of an IS enabling flexibility in the first place. In summary, joining the theoretical basis and the application of FIS valuation, this paper gathers all necessary fundamentals for a sound financial valuation of FIS and reveals the need for further development within this stream of BISE research.
