Many businesses choose to outsource IT requirements to other companies. Organizations prefer to hire companies in the same region as theirs. However, sometimes you may have to outsource a few operations to companies in other countries.

There are several advantages related to this. Firstly, businesses can leverage expertise and experience from a large group of organizations. It means that organizations do not restrict themselves to a few companies. It allows organizations to hire from among the best talent.

Apart from the developed Western countries, many countries churn software developers with exemplary skills and professionalism. From developing countries in Asia to countries in Eastern Europe, the skilled workforce operates as IT outsourcing provider to countries in the developed world.


The best developers in the world


Asian countries such as India, Vietnam, the Philippines, Thailand, China, and others rank the highest globally. One of the reasons is that they offer affordable (often inexpensive) services to clients from all over the world. In India, the government has been pushing for advancements in IT and technology to develop technical skills among the population. Despite the apparent advantages, there is one drawback of outsourcing IT requirements to Asian countries. The difference in culture between the Western clients and Asian staff is quite visible, which will take some time to fill.

Eastern Europe

However, when it comes to countries in Europe, especially Eastern Europe, there are several advantages to outsourcing. One thing to keep in mind is that countries in Eastern Europe can also boast of having the top programmers globally. Eastern European countries, such as Ukraine, Romania, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, and others, are emerging landscapes for IT and technology.

Saigon Technology reports that software developers in this region charge less than other countries. Moreover, their skill is regarded as top-notch the world over. The article also mentions that some of these countries were part of the Soviet Union, which stressed the importance of STEM fields. It could help explain why these countries are faring well in the IT outsourcing field. Another advantage in hiring companies in these countries is that they are part of the European Union. Hence, they comply with the IT standards, including data laws.

The best part about hiring talent from this region is that organizations can find cultural compatibility. People from this region, particularly those working in the IT field, have a good grasp of the English language and can converse with their Western and Australian clients. 

These countries are emerging in the IT outsourcing field and will soon dominate. Among all the EU countries, Ukraine portrays a striking example of increasing its ranks among the top web developers and programmers. Because of this, it is slowly taking over the IT landscape. Nowadays, clients have many options to choose from. More employers are now considering Ukrainian IT companies over others.

Serbia is yet another country that paddles top notch services to clients from across the globe. The clients who put faith in software development services of Serbia, benefit from the low prices in the long run. Although the prices are low, the quality of work is high and can easily be compared with that from the USA. For your information, the time zone in Serbia is the Central EST, which means that workers won’t face any issues when working with people from North America or Western Europe.

Because Serbia offers top notch education, students in electrotechnical engineering benefit to a great extent. This is why it is easier for one to find a large pool of talent in this spectalura country. If you don’t know, this country has English as the second obligatory language, which is why it is taught in most of the elementary schools. If you check out its ranking in the IT outsourcing field, you will be astonished to know that it ranks number 15 out of 100. No wonder, Serbia has cemented a strong reputation for itself by paddling high quality software development services to different companies from across the globe.

Ukraine is another popular country, which is often overlooked. Although English isn’t a very popular language, still around 80% of the IT employees speak the language fluently. If you visit the country, language is going to be a big barrier. However, its time zone overlaps both that of the US and the UK, so it is easy to work with people from different countries. Ukraine is chanted as a good outsourcing option because it prioritizes working with companies that have a good quality price offering. If you don’t have hands-on experience of working with the IT professionals from this country, you can always request a free quote.

North America

The USA is the technology hub at the moment. Countries in North America are generally among the ones that outsource their requirements. In some cases, companies in these countries are hired for their services. Their billing rates are among the highest, given that they have the highest skills as well. 


Top programmers

A report by SkillValue (mentioned in an article on Daxx) lists the top programmers in the world. Slovakia, Mexico, Poland, Hungary, and Ukraine rank among the top five in the world. The article also pays special attention to Ukrainian programmers and mentions that their rank has improved. These programmers are constantly improving their skills.

Different websites rank countries according to their standards. HackerRank reports that the countries with the best web developers include China, Russia, Poland, Switzerland, and Hungary. You can collaborate with the programmers from the Philippines because they are willing to work on affordable rates. Before you decide to work with any of them, it is recommended that you go through the customer reviews and always read the testimonial section.
