Russian IT Outsourcing Market on a Roll
By Imrana Khan
CMP Media’s Global Services magazine profiles Russia as an outsourcing destination of choice, based on a comprehensive report of Russian IT sector by IDC Research, and features DataArt as one of its leaders. "Russian IT service companies are now counted amongst the world’s best providers," writes the magazine. Stability in relationships, technical expertise and relatively low staff turnover are the key advantages of Russian software-development companies, according to the study. "Recently, DataArt was amongst Russian companies that were recognized by IAOP (for Employee Management). Global Services, too, recognized DataArt in its annual listing of global service providers in February this year." Companies participating in the study point to the availability of very well-educated engineers, strong technical skills and sound methodologies as the benefits of outsourcing to Russia.
