ELEKS Software today announced that it participated in organizing the first ever “Lviv Outsourcing Forum” that took place on March 27, 2010. Top executives and leaders in the Ukrainian IT outsourcing industry and IT companies from Lviv region came together to discuss the further development of the Western Ukrainian software services market. The Outsourcing Forum was held in Lviv, Ukraine and was jointly organized by ELEKS Software and the Lviv Startup Club association.
With 38 universities and institutions producing more than 30,000 highly educated graduates each year, Lviv has become one of the preeminent IT Outsourcing locations in Ukraine. Moreover, 25% of all Ukrainian programmers working in Lviv, are making the city one of Eastern Europe’s largest technology and R&D centers.
It’s no wonder that Lviv, with its strong educational base focused on the sciences and technology, relatively low costs and capacity to offer highly skilled workforce with a broad technological expertise, has become home for Ukraine’s largest outsourcing services providers.
The Lviv Outsourcing Forum will meet twice a year with the sole purpose of focusing on attracting new customers to the region and best competing on a global scale – all with the goal of doubling the size of Lviv outsourcing market by the end of 2012.
Oleksiy Skrypnyk, CEO for ELEKS Software, has been active in promoting technology based business sector in the region for a number of years now and holds the post of Board Chairman of IT/BPO Business Services Cluster. Mr. Skrypnyk spoke at the conference about how best to position Ukrainian IT companies in the world, the need to build a directory of Lviv IT companies, their core competencies and the need to promote the Business Services Cluster in Lviv.
The organizers welcomed owners and directors of IT outsourcing and BPO companies, top managers involved in business decision making, experienced freelancers, and companies interested in outsourcing of internal business processes to participate in the initiative.
