Tieste is a Western-owned, boutique business operating development services from out of Ukraine. Tieste is operated by native English speakers who gained their experience in business and IT in Australia, Ireland and America. Since 2004, we have worked in distributed development as clients, managers and suppliers. We believe we are rare in that the person on the other end of the line has come from a similar professional, cultural and language background.
Many of the disadvantages and risks and disasters associated with outsourcing have been well-documented over the last decade or so, from the time companies first leapt at the opportunity to lower drastically their development and operating labour costs. Nonetheless, outsourcing does offer distinct benefits and companies are now much more experienced at understanding those benefits and the associated risks. Outsourcing, as a result, continues to grow strongly around the world. Today, companies do not necessarily just want cheaper labour and are now clearer on the difference between cost and value. Eastern European developers are strongly sought after because of their technical skills.
Another trend can be seen in the increasing number of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME's) now considering or engaging in outsourcing. Previously, outsourcing was overwhelmingly the domain of large corporations with large IT budgets that could afford the cost of transferring to outsourcing and still see the benefit of substantial cost savings.
Ukraine is part of Central and Eastern Europe, a region which has been growing exponentially as an offshoring and nearshoring destination for Western clients. Ukraine is now the region's largest IT services exporter (and fifth in the world) and was awarded "Outsourcing Destination of the Year" in the 2011 European Outsourcing Awards.
Tieste Outsourcing is ideally suited to SME clients who desire the combined benefits of cost savings and strong technical workers. We can help you start small, dip your toe in the water before making any major commitments and taking any large risks. You may choose to "own" your own team—even your own office—or you may prefer to hire for a specific project. We set up and manage this for you. Your operation can scale up in the manner most appropriate to your situation.
