SWOT Analysis Strengths Weaknesses
Strengths
Weaknesses

    knowledge based on strong math background,
    capable to specialize in any area very fast.
  • Very good knowledge on using commercial software,
    due to piracy rate in past period.
  • Solid english language proficiency.
  • Significant number of self-educated freelancers,
    mostly technical facultys students.
  • IT expertise in a region is balanced over
    different organizations, making very low degree
    of competitiveness, yet great potential for
    adding value to existing products and services
    with complementary offers.
  • Largest cities university centers are well
    connected by road infrastructure
  • Universities are equipped with computers and
    broadband internet.
  • Solid number of small agencies with one or more
    SLA contracts with client from abroad.
  • Lack of highly educated staff.

    market requirements for a staff.

SWOT Analysis Opportunities Threats
Opportunities
Threats
  • Global IT outsourcing market, as well as
    awareness of the need to outsource grows rapidly,
    particularily in open-source technologies.
  • It is expected that outsourcing development
    projects would move fast to Serbia, after EU
    succession of Bulgaria and Romania, due to salary
    growth.
  • There is a growth of demand in IT inovations at
    the global market. It makes a number of
    opportunities for fast kick-off of global IT
    brand in software industry.
  • During software legalization process, it is
    expected that the local demand for open-source
    server software would grow.
  • Global institutions (EC, World Bank, IMF, NGO)
    are willing to donate to IT based projects.
  • Offer of IT consumer products and services does
    not follow the growth of internet penetration
    among citizens.
  • As sector clearly disseminates into local and
    global market oriented companies, potential for
    profitable relations between players grows.
  • There is a risk that expected growth of demand
    for outsourced development would not be met due
    to serious lack of highly educated staff.
  • Brain drain.
  • Lack of understanding of IT role in a government
    processes and relations.
  • Lack of knowledge on data protection,
    non-disclosure agreements and security policy
    could lead to risks of endangering of information
    confidentiality.
  • Continuous lack of highly educated staff could
    lead to salary growth.
  • Strategic partnership with Microsoft and 30.000
    licenses of its software in government
    institutions and public companies could set a
    path to proprietary SW based e-government
    projects, which could endanger RD investments in
    IT sector.
  • Growth of demand for outsourcing services could
    lead to lack of resources dedicated to research
    and innovation.

    same competences.
