The destruction of the Soviet Union about 15 years ago, made a huge countryside with a great level of IT art on bad terms into small bricks. Nowadays, although Russia's development into the world software advancement market, Ukraine keeps in concert an critical role here too. There are numerous nuts and bolts for this.


Traditionally, Ukraine all the time was a industrial borough of the USSR. No wonder, the IT edification was and still is one of the most admired and respective learning in the region. Such well-known Ukrainian universities as Kyiv General Expert University, Donetsk General Industrial Academia etc. as well as new establishments with more innovative advance for IT specialists education, such as Donetsk State Institute of False Astuteness and others, educate a new prospective age band of young IT professionals, ambitious and purposeful.

It's obvious, Ukrainian students win in intercontinental contests, and show true professionalism and capability to enter a affair life immediately, hence, to play the first fiddle in the labour market. As the most modern example, one can bring to mind students of Kharkiv Inhabitant Academic world of Radio Electronics that became first place winners of the Global Web Change Contest (I. C. W. D. I. C. 2005) held by XITEX Software Circle in bound 2005.

That is why governments of European countries further Ukrainian programmers to come and to work there. Germany is the best case of a kingdom that understands all pros and cons of Ukrainian IT professional, thus it's the fatherland that sees its remuneration of employing Ukrainian programmers.

Another one central cause is the cost of labour. In Ukraine, usual hourly rates for programmers are $10-$15. While they are a small amount larger than Indian ones, they are still 1. 5 times minor than Russian ones and more than a few times slighter than American or European costs. If you bear in mind the high level of professionalism and responsibility, then you add a European mind and time zone, plus a fluent English of the most of IT people, you apprehend that Ukraine is that happy form each business looks for. Hence, many companies that contract out have before now realized it.

The total add up to of IT specialists engaged in IT-export army was about 10,000 in 2003 and grew by far for the duration of next years.

Everything mentioned above shows that Ukraine has great prospects to befit and equal player to the most known leaders of the market. Its well-developed IT infrastructure, level of services, and professionalism of programmers made Ukrainian companies able to compete for composite and convoluted projects with other well-known developers. There are a number of companies that invest in their own software solutions and promote them worldwide with success. However, all of them are engaged into lesser or superior software education projects as subcontractors.

The next step of Ukrainian gait into the world IT marketplace seems to be a wide authorities of offshore advance centers based on now accessible software change companies. Basics are obvious:

1. Ukrainian IT companies have whole infrastructure compulsory to build steadfast custom concentration and bring it in time.

2. The gross yearly expenditure per one programmer will vary from $20,000 to $30,000.

The only thing cadaver to be done, though. Ukrainian IT companies are assembly only their first steps in self-promotion. The more authority they befit in this field, the more apparent it would be that Ukraine becomes a competitive player on the world software outsourcing market.
