An important takeaway about the benefits of Norwegian-Ukrainian IT-cooperation
- Norway needs IT-competence. Today the storage of skilled IT-professionals is the main impediment to growth.
- Ukraine is an attractive IT-destination. It has the largest pool of IT-professionals in Eastern and Central Europe. All the developers have the high competence and the lower price level. An additional benefit is the proximity of Ukraine to Europe.
- Due to the high cost of labor in Norway, there is a trend of total automation of all processes.
