Software Outsourcing To Hungary
With their stable, Democratic government, developed infrastructure, and highly skilled and motivated workforce, Hungary is an ideal country for software outsourcing.
Thanks to the former Soviet Union country’s engineering-based education system, Hungary enjoys a robust IT outsourcing market, with a market volume of $475M annually. Hungarians are creative, flexible, and hardworking and have the highest productivity rate in the region, according to ITD Hungary.
Hungary’s long-term political and economic stability have fueled significant investment in Hungary, as global companies have moved manufacturing, R&D, and service operations there, including HP-Compaq, Nokia, Siemens, Ericsson and SAP. Because of their stability, Hungarians enjoy high standards of living and an outstanding quality of life.
Hungarian scientists and engineers have made significant contributions to IT and computer programming industries. The concept of programming and data storage in a computer’s memory was developed by John von Neumann (born János Neumann in Hungary in 1903) for the IAS Computer in 1951, all of which still determine the way a PC works today, while John G. Kemeny created the BASIC programming language.

What to expect when working with a development team in Hungary
Because of the high level of education and depth and breadth of engineering experience, working with software developers in Hungary is much like working with them in Western Europe or North America. Everyone in Hungary speaks English fluently, and developers can converse in technical terms. Their approach is flexible, motivated, and collaborative; they will suggest changes or tweaks to improve your project, rather than implementing it without question.
The Hungarian workday overlaps with the U.S. during morning hours on the East Coast. Delivering a project in a timely manner is not a problem, as Hungarians are a highly productive, professional workforce that take their commitments seriously.
Hungary is easily accessible by air from the US and by train from within Europe; because they are a member of the EU, only a passport is required to enter the country.
Hungarians have a unique language and culture unlike any of their neighbors that has evolved over their 1,100 year history. Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe to visit, and it abounds with things to do, from thermal spas to museums.
