June 9, 2010 – Bucharest – IBA Group, one of the largest IT service providers in Central and Eastern Europe, has become the hundredth company registered in the catalogue ITOlist.eu. Among the hundred registered companies which provide outsourcing services, there are 33 companies from Ukraine, 25 companies from Romania, and 10 companies from Belarus. The Central and Eastern European (CEE) region is one of the most fast-developing providers of nearshore IT outsourcing services for the EU countries and offshore IT outsourcing services for the American and Asian countries.
A major objective of the catalogue ITOlist.eu is to create a full base of IT outsourcing service providers from Central and Eastern Europe that will allow consumers to facilitate the search of the right partner. The catalogue ITOlist.eu includes company profiles with information about companies, their services, technologies, clients and projects. The providers are able to add video presentations and publish advanced company profiles. The clients are able to use the multilevel search, view provider profiles, send requests for collaboration or IT projects implementation.
Sergei Levteev, President of IBA Group, comments: “This year, we are participating for the first time in the research organized by the Central and Eastern European Outsourcing Association. We believe that the inclusion of our company in the two information resources of the association, namely the report “CEE IT Outsourcing Review 2009” and the catalogue ITOlist.eu, will grant us access to the additional groups of outsourcing service consumers across the globe. We also support the idea that we need to promote Central and Eastern Europe as a promising destination for the world IT outsourcing industry.”
Some information gathered in the online survey http://research.ceeoa.org will be used as source information for the report “CEE IT Outsourcing Review 2009” – annual review of IT outsourcing service providers and markets in 16 countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
CEEOA invites all outsourcing service providers from the CEE region to participate in online survey for the research “CEE IT Outsourcing Review 2009” – http://research.ceeoa.org. Each company-respondent that completes the survey will get a free profile in online catalogue ITOlist.eu and the brief company profile in the report.
Central and Eastern European Outsourcing Association (CEEOA) (www.ceeoa.org) was founded in 2008. The members of the association are the leading national IT and Outsourcing associations from the Central and Eastern Europe, among them Baltic Outsourcing Association (BOA), Ukrainian HI-TECH Initiative, Hungarian Service Industry and Outsourcing Association (HOA), Employers’ Association of the Software and Services Industry (ANIS) from Romania, Bulgarian Web Association (BWA) and ASPIRE - Association of IT & Business Process Services Companies (Poland). One of the main objectives of CEEOA is to promote the Central and Eastern European Region as competitive alternative to other Global offshoring destinations, and to increase services delivery quality and volume to the recognized standards.
