IBA Group Opens Development Center in Poland
On February 1, IBA Group announced the opening of its development center in Poland. Legally registered on January 22, IBA Poland is located in Wroclaw, one of the three major IT hubs of Poland. Poland became the sixth country where IBA Group set up a development center and the 13th country where IBA Group established its presence.
The expansion is driven by an increasing demand for IT services in Central Europe and the IBA Group’s strategy to be close to its clients. IBA Group chose Poland as a location for the company’s development center because of the intellectual potential and favorable geographic position. The country borders on the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine, where IBA Group has offices.
Wroclaw, the capital of Lower Silesia, is the largest academic center in Poland. The total number of students in Wroclaw is 112,000, including more than 15,000 in IT and IT-related fields. Almost 36,000 people currently work in the Wrocław IT industry. The city is considered to be one of the most developed and innovative IT ecosystems in the country, and the Polish Silicon Valley. Wroclaw is 350 km away from Prague and 150 km from Dresden.
IBA Group intends to bring the experience and technology know-how of all its centers of excellence to Poland. IBA Poland will focus on enterprise applications, including mobility solutions, business analytics, Big Data, Machine Learning, and SAP services.
At the initial stage, IBA Poland employees will be working from home. The company is planning to hold an office warming party in a new office as soon as the pandemic abates.
We opened a new development center in the time of global economic downturn. However, I believe that the decision will be beneficial for both our customers and us. The pandemic accelerated digital transformation and increased demand for software development services. Poland is not a new destination for IBA Group, as our developers have been implementing projects for a global IT leader in cooperation with Polish IT developers and traveling to Poland, working as a part of an international team.
