GlobaliSE is a research project in the context of the research compound "Enterprise Software" (Forschungsverbund Unternehmenssoftware) and is funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and Arts of the federal state Baden-Württemberg. The project was started in April 2009. While coordinated by the Forschungszentrum Informatik (FZI), the project partners are the University of Mannheim and the Karlsruhe Insitute of Technology (KIT).
The goal of the project is to enable small- and medium sized software engineering enterprises to profit from globalisation. The main focus is on a light-weight support of the complete lifecycle in the development of high-grade, enterprise-specific software, where the core processes are carried out within the enterprises, while non-complex parts of the systems are externalised to the global market.
