The practice of IT outsourcing has become so common and widespread that making the decision regarding the country to outsource can be quite difficult. Different regions may have some hidden obstacles and potential complications for IT outsourcing companies. Keep reading to learn more about the key advantages of the Ukrainian outsourcing compared to other countries.
With the IT outsourcing giant India taking over 40% of the world’s outsourcing supply, Asia has become the region with the highest number of developers. According to the recent data, by the end of 2018, the Indian developer base will reach a striking level of 5.2 million. Nevertheless, despite the size of the labor market, the percentage of experienced specialists is comparatively low. India and many other Asian countries have a great share of developers with minimum experience who agree to a lower hourly rate but, actually, cannot ensure the necessary quality without the Senior help. Moreover, in case an Asian developer is highly qualified, they will request the US level of salary ruining all your dreams to cut development costs.
Ukraine boasts a higher percentage of experienced developers and has a more balanced tech labor market. These specialists have much stronger technical expertise and a better English proficiency which makes them a more valuable asset for outsourcing.
Why Ukraine is a better choice:
Latin America is a relatively new region on the IT outsourcing map with Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina playing a key role. It was pretty obvious that sooner or later these countries will attract the US tech giants due to their close geographical location and lower hourly rate. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Yet before deciding to outsource, you should take into account the political situation in the chosen destination. Anti-business and anti-American governments control many Latin America’s countries, including Bolivia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and to some extent, Argentina, which may become a serious obstacle to the launch and development of outsourcing teams.
Why Ukraine is a better choice:
When it comes to the comparison of the Ukrainian tech field with other CEE countries, Poland, Belarus, and Russia are definitely in focus. These countries have so much in common that it may be difficult to understand their primary differences in terms of IT outsourcing. To help you out, here are several key points:
