The IT sector is one of the most fast-paced and developed industries in the world. Across central and Eastern Europe, Poland has one of the most attractive IT markets to date and is a hub for software developers.
The rise in Software Development
The global software development market size in 2021 was valued at 429.59 billion and is expected to expand at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 11.7% from 2022 to 2030. More businesses are investing in technology and these companies are seeking the best app developers possible. There is an ongoing demand for new ideas and developments in this industry. It has become clear that solid software can have significant benefits for your company’s success.
The demand for IT developers has opened up many opportunities across Europe and one of the countries that became an IT industry hub is Poland. Poland is often referred to as “the IT center of Europe”. Poland has become home to the creation of domestic IT companies and a large number of international organisations have relocated their branches to Poland.
In Poland today, there is an estimated 50,000 software companies, with 800 of them offering custom software development services.
The success of the Polish IT market is partly down to the graduates that emerge from their education systems. There are over 74, 000 ICT students across Poland that attend 18 different technical universities. These include AGH University of Science in Kraków, Warsaw University of Technology, and Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice. The Polish education system is meeting the needs of emerging technologies in the country, with the majority of these graduates going straight into software development post-graduation.
Benefits of Outsourcing to Poland
There are many other aspects of this country that make it so attractive to software developers, some of these include:
- Good location with very few time zone differences. This allows for easy everyday communication with businesses and clients from Scandinavia, Western Europe, the Middle East, and even the United States.
- Great quality-price ratio. Although money is not always the most important aspect of choosing a new software partner, it plays a major role in software developer’s decision-making. Polish software developers’ services are often referred to as “too good” and “too cheap”.
- Competition plays a major role in the success of the Polish IT market. Companies are constantly looking for new talent and open to new ideas to find some market niches and stand out. Software developers with new ideas are always welcome in the Polish IT market.
