ICON Worldwide Bulgaria

 

In January 2018 we opened a dedicated Development Center in Sofia, Bulgaria designed to meet the growing demand for technology talent.

The technology industry is evolving rapidly. Demand for skilled developers is high and talent is in short supply. Simultaneously, our clients are demanding we solve more complex development projects.

For over ten years ICON Worldwide has partnered with multinational companies to develop everything from websites and mobile applications, to complex medical diagnostic devices and software products.  Often, we serve as outsourced IT partners, hosting and running businesses.

Bulgaria, with its excellent technical universities, strong IT work force and digital infrastructure will allow us to scale rapidly to meet the demands of our customers.

 

Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning.

85% of companies think AI will offer a competitive advantage

As technologies like Blockchain, AI and Machine Learning begin to realise their potential as major business initiatives, companies will be unable to find the developers needed to execute and manage internal projects.

According to a report by MIT Sloan Management Review and the Boston Consulting Group, around 85% of companies think AI will offer a competitive advantage, but only 1 in 20 is extensively employing it today.

 

AI Merger & Acquisitions are up 26%

This points to an even more increased demand for developers capable of working in these new areas, as well as the managers to lead these teams. Larger companies may try to meet this demand via acquisition.

In 2017 firms worldwide spend $21.8 billion on AI related acquisitions, up 26% from 2015. For mid-size companies, for whom acquisition is not an answer, the ability to compete in these technologies is daunting.
