Software Outsourcing to Bosnia and Herzegovina


Bosnia and Herzegovina is expanding its position as a competitive software outsourcing location, and no wonder. It offers inexpensive IT labor rates, EU-compliant legislation, attractive tax breaks, and the lowest inflation in SEE. Bosnia and Herzegovina is often referred to as Germany’s “extended workbench.”
A well-established industrial tradition, a competitive workforce, a favorable business environment, a great geostrategic location–all these factors are encouraging many European companies to shift production to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The infrastructure for outsourcing IT solutions is well developed in Bosnia and the Bosnian workforce is highly skilled in technology. Bosnia and Herzegovina continually improves the quality of its IT education by collaborating with U.S. and European universities, encouraging student work abroad programs, and establishing partnerships with European research institutions. Moreover, Bosnia aims for even greater IT specialization, encouraging its students to take up technical degrees in software engineering, information science, and telecommunications. Many leading corporations have expanded their businesses in Bosnia and Herzegovina, including Siemens, Microsoft, Cisco and Oracle. Bosnia competes well economically with other leading European outsourcing locations, such as Macedonia, Moldova, the Ukraine, Bulgaria and Serbia.

The IT sector has emerged as an important part of the Bosnian economy. Many students have acquired strong technical expertise and experience by working for the international corporations that have a presence in Bosnia or by participating in international projects through the student work abroad programs. Their English proficiency is at a high level and they have adopted the European mentality and the European work culture. The availability of educated and well-trained IT workers, the excellent IT infrastructure, and the inexpensive labor rates all contribute significantly to the development of Bosnia as an ideal environment for outsourcing projects.
