Abstract: Software has become crucial for everyday matters. In this context, the effective management of the software development process has become an essential issue for business survival in an ever more competitive industry. In order to gain business strengths from the development process, organisations need to carry out software development in the most efficient manner possible, avoiding redundancy and time losses. This paper presents an architecture which combines the strengths of two technologies, web 2.0 and the semantic web, as a solution to reuse and extrapolate knowledge and software products across projects and organisations. The Social Global Repository (SGR) is a tool which incorporates the established methodological recommendations of Software Engineering (SE) in an environment which provides support, flexibility and up-to-date solutions to software development teams.
