  • There are a variety of definitions and understandings of a global information system (GIS, GLIS), such as * A global information system (GIS) is an information system which is developed and / or used in a global context. * A global information system (GIS) is any information system which attempts to deliver the totality of measurable data worldwide within a defined context. Common to this class of information systems is that the context is a global setting, either for its use or development process. This means that it highly relates to distributed systems / distributed computing where the distribution is global. The term also incorporates aspects of global software development and there outsourcing (when the outsourcing locations are globally distributed) and offshoring aspects. A specific aspect of global information systems is the case (domain) of global software development. A main research aspect in this field concerns the coordination of and collaboration between virtual teams. Further important aspects are the internationalization and language localization of system components. (en)
