We’ve just released the new “IT Outsourcing Landscape Report 2011: Central and Eastern Europe (CEE)” aimed at comparing and contrasting the 6 CEE countries in terms of:

  • capacity for innovation
  • IT labor market efficiency
  • flexibility
  • spending on research & development (R&D)
  • number of IT specialists employed in IT outsourcing industry
  • IT rates
  • Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of IT project teams

The Report concludes that Ukraine and Belarus are currently holding the equal positions as the leading non-EU, while Romania is the leading EU locale for IT outsourcing services in the CEE region in terms of cost effectiveness, access to innovation and size of IT resource pool available.
