Kyiv IT Outsourcing Forum 2018
Registration is opened here!
The topic of this-year KIOF is ‘Company Management by Textbook, Corporatization and Owner’s Trap‘
However, on the world economic development, the decrease of unemployment in the US, the digital transformation of companies around the world, the Ukrainian outsourcing industry feels quite good.
- The predicted amount of IT exports in 2018 equals 4,5 billion US dollars.
- The contribution of the IT-industry to the total Gross Domestic Product amounts to 3,34%.
- The IT-companies, running their business in Ukraine, have paid 16,7 billion UAH of taxes.
- More than 130 thousand specialists are employed in the IT industry.
The American and European business is being developed and transformed into the digital era and it can no longer provide itself with local IT-specialists. There appear a lot of requests, which entrepreneurs are ready to solve on the cost of remote teams.
It seems that any business-oriented project manager with the 4-5 year experience in IT outsourcing industry is able to take 2-3 projects and to gather a team of 10-15 developers. Though the further growth of a company and its development still remains without the solution.
The lack of comprehensive business education, the vision of the IT landscape in the global economy, the experience of building business processes does not allow all new and old small companies to develop harmoniously and to see the prospects in future.
For that reason, the major issues of the conference will be practices of building the right IT outsourcing businesses according to the best knowledge.
