- Aspirations of young digital natives in the region to become programmers or engineers
- Educational systems focused on key strengths in engineering, math and science
- Leading providers focus on high-end software engineering with expertise in agile development
- Leading providers focus on product development services which helps differentiate from traditional IT services
As a result of these strengths, some leading providers in the region will likely become preferred partners for this next generation of business driven engagements. However, due to the fragmentation of the services market only a few providers currently have such mature capabilities. Therefore companies may well look to set up their own innovation centers in the region, to try and tap into the sophisticated talent. Regardless of whether companies look to third parties or seek to go it alone, the next few years promise to be an exciting time in CEE as these broader and fundamental technology shifts play out.
