On April 8, Vitaly Sedler, President of the IТ Ukraine Association, held an online meeting with journalists to discuss the IT development trends in Ukraine and the world, as well as a special legal regime Diia City (yesterday, 15.04, Verkhovna Rada adopted as a basis the draft Law No. 4303 “On Stimulating the Development of Digital Economy in Ukraine” – a special regime of taxation of residents of the ‘Diia City’).
- Already in the second half of 2020, the IT industry returned to pre-crisis levels, including the number of vacancies, and began to grow. Businesses realized that it was possible to live in a pandemic, and began investing in new business models. A delayed global demand for technology solutions appeared, and we took this opportunity.
- There is a demand for digital solutions, and competition for the talents of development engineers has increased. The result was a jump in the salaries of IT specialists. On the one hand, this is good, because the business is growing and gaining momentum. On the other hand, there is a new challenge – to build appropriate business relationships with customers.
- 2021 will be a year of active growth of the industry: we expect the usual 25-30% growth of the Ukrainian IT market. Today, the information technology industry is one of the main driving forces of the Ukrainian economy, so it is necessary to create the most favorable conditions for its development.
- The following industries are most actively developing in IT: cloud migration, everything related to remote interaction, online retail, etc.
- The concept of Diia.City has more questions than answers. At present, it is difficult for businesses and developers to understand how it will actually help the IT industry. It seems that the reform itself will bring more risks than opportunities. If our “critical lines” are taken into account, we will be able to discuss the support of the Diia.City regime.
