Now in its second edition, Emerging Europe’s Future of IT report maps the opportunities for IT sourcing, partnerships and investment across 28 countries in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as Central Asia.
The Future of IT Report combines essential hard data with editorial analyses featuring views and intelligence from over 100 IT and sourcing experts, and leading industry players from all over the world.
Highlights about Ukraine:
- Ukraine is emerging Europe’s sleeping ICT giant. A large and highly educated population and a relatively low cost of living make it an incredibly attractive outsourcing destination
- Ukraine also has a pretty strong start-up ecosystem that has birthed five unicorns already: GitLab, Grammarly, Genesis, People.ai and Firefly Aerospace.
- Last year, Ukraine’s government launched Diia City, a special economic zone providing a new legal and tax framework for IT companies, which the country and key partners believe will boost its status as a tech powerhouse
