Outsourcing to Ukraine

15-04-2011

Outsourcing software development in Ukraine already has a 20-year history. The history starts with the removal of the Iron Curtain and formation of a new independent democratic country. In the legacy of the Soviet Union, Ukraine has obtained a strong scientific base and a huge entrepreneurial potential.

 

To date, the country operates 350 universities, 45 of which are located in the city of Kharkov, including the Kharkov National University, founded in 1805. 241402Base for education of IT-professionals in Kharkov is formed by such universities, as: Kharkov National University of Radio and Electronics, National aerospace university "Kharkov Aviation Institute", National technical university "Kharkov Polytechnic Institute".

Each year, the country is filled by 30 thousand young specialists in the field of IT. Ukrainian specialists have strong educational background, technical experience and good knowledge of foreign languages, especially English. We can fairly say that the education system of Ukraine in the IT sector is aimed at training professionals to work in foreign markets.

 

Availability of highly skilled professionals is not the only advantage of Ukraine as an outsourcing destination. Among other advantages of Ukraine as a country, it may be noted:

  • competitive salaries and costs
  • short geographical distance
  • negligible time difference
  • visa-free travelling, member of WTO
  • similar culture and business understanding

 

All these factors are largely responsible for the high interest in the Ukrainian IT companies as the outsourcing software development service providers. To date, approximately 70% of Ukrainian companies engaged in outsourcing. The USA and Western Europe are both well-established importers of software development services from the Ukraine.
