Outsourcing to Ukraine
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. Base 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.
