It's finally happened! Ukraine has been recognized by outsourcing experts as the top destination for ITO in 2011. The country has won the nomination "Outsourcing Destination of The Year" in the frames of European Outsourcing Excellence Awards.
Over the last decade Ukraine has gained a huge interest from the western countries for provision of outsourcing services in the areas of Informational Technology. Country's IT sector saw a double-digit growth over the last 5 years finally reaching 1 billion value last year. Today, Ukraine is the world's fifth IT services exporter worldwide with the biggest labor pool in CEE region.
Many experts agreed that country's specific traits such as unique geographical location, cultural likeness, rich labor pool and strong scientific legacy coupled with cost-benefits provided by country's non-EU memberships will play a crucial role in shaping outsourcing landscape in the coming years.
At Nearshore Outsourcing Blog we believe this is a great next step for Ukraine and would like to thank our associates for nominating Ukraine for this Award. Nearshore Outsourcing Blog together with Ukrainian Hi-Tech Initiative provided an informational support for the nomination!
