Crowdsourcing and social networks open new opportunities for software development. As of today, however, there is no integrated approach to leverage this potential for software development in a systematic way. In this chapter we discuss the state of the art, its limitations, and research efforts toward a holistic, crowd-enabled software engineering experience. This allows companies to leverage the potential of the crowd, a flexible on-demand workforce, by seamless integration of suitable experts into the software development process. Software developers working in loosely coupled and open team structures need to be supported to efficiently collaborate by providing them with the necessary tool chain. Since the management of software projects incorporating the crowd poses new challenges to project managers, we also discuss approaches that help to manage such projects and to ensure a high-quality software product.
