Final Thesis: Aggregation of Communication Data for Inner Source Software Development

Abstract: Inner Source software development is becoming more popular and promises a lot of benefits to companies. Inner Source projects can involve distributed development teams, where communication management is challenging. There are tools like GrimoireLab for integrating and analyzing data of software projects. GrimoireLab only covers the integration of a small percentage of communication tools and their data. Even though there is research in analyzing communication data, there is a lack of data integration tools for enterprise communication tools. This thesis aims to integrate communication data from Cisco Webex and Microsoft Teams and provide a concept on how to aggregate this data to gain insights into Inner Source software development.
