Moldova, between Romania and Ukraine, is perhaps not the first country you come to think of when you plan your IT outsourcing. If you ever been to Moldova, then it´s a good chance that you zipped more of the excellent Moldovan wine than talked to an IT expert. If so you may even have been down to one of the largest wine cellars in the world, Cricova, with 120 km wine packed underground roads. Well worth a trip in its own right.
But forget the wine for a while, because Moldova is now on a marketing campaign to tell Europe about it´s competence and competiveness to take on IT development from the West. And a few days ago the Moldovan group, headed by, the deputy ICT minister, Ms Scola (photo), visited Stockholm where she presented facts and figures about Moldova´s IT industry as well as introduced a few IT companies ready to grab in to Swedish IT projects.
should be no doubts that Moldova will give their competitors in the
region a fight about the IT outsourcing projects from the west, offering among the lowest cost/hour
for highly educated IT professionals. Representatives
from Moldovan companies, like DAAC Systems (who already works for Dell and several other western companies) and QSystems on line Solutions were joined by the CEO of Lexicon IT Konsult, Markus Närenbäck, who talked about the Swedish IT
market, and an enthusiastic app-specialist from Apple, who gave an insight into the growing
importance of apps in businesses.
All in all, a very interesting and informative show by the Moldovan IT industry.
