Accelerance, the leading consulting firm for software outsourcing strategies and best practices, traveled to Eastern Europe to investigate and validate the technical and business capabilities of top software development companies in the region.
Accelerance team members visited Poland, Ukraine and Croatia on September 9-19. During these trips, Accelerance met with leaders from the best software outsourcing companies in Eastern Europe to review their capabilities, expertise, processes, metrics, as well as their recruiting and training practices. The end goal was to assess each company's readiness as a global software outsourcing provider.
"We went to review software outsourcing in Eastern Europe because the region continues to be a source of quality code, technical expertise, deep pools of talent and affordable cost," says Ryan Shauer, Partner Success Manager at Accelerance. "It's critical for us to visit these companies, verify their capabilities and experience the location and culture just like a customer would. We save our clients a lot of time and risk with this kind of due diligence. When we certify these companies, we ask more questions - the right questions - that most clients don't know to ask."
Croatia, known for tourism on the beautiful Adriatic coast, is gaining reputation as a software development destination. Top software development companies are found in Zagreb, the country's capital. The region is somewhat undiscovered by major corporations which makes it one of the better choices for software outsourcing since big players haven't established operations in the region and scooped up all the top talent (yet.)
