The Brno branch is not IBA’s only development centre in the Czech Republic. In 1999, the group established a development centre in Prague and in 2005 relocated its world headquarters to the Czech capital.

 “The Czech Republic has attracted a remarkable inflow of projects into the IT and business support services sectors in the past few years. The country has the potential to become an information-technology hub of Europe and IBA Group, which recently relocated its world headquarters to Prague, is yet another example of this trend. CzechInvest is pleased to collaborate with IBA on its Brno project, as the proposed centre will provide sophisticated software development services which are a key part of the company’s business plans,” said Tomas Hruda, CEO of CzechInvest.

 “The reasons behind the decision to invest in the expansion of the IBA branch in Brno are the Czech Republic’s conducive business environment, the country’s membership in the EU, and the growing demand of European clients for IT outsourcing,” commented Sergej Levteev, president of IBA Group.     

IBA Group established its Brno development centre in 2005 as branch of IBA CZ, its development centre located in Prague. Afterwards, IBA Group chose the city of Brno for further expansion in Central Europe in order to meet the growing demand of Czech and other European clients for onshore and near-shore software-development services. The company anticipates strong cooperation with local universities and IBA welcomes fresh graduates to many of the new jobs to be created.

 The investment will enable the dynamic expansion of the Brno development centre and the seamless integration of newly employed developers with the current team of Java EE experts. Furthermore, it will accelerate the transfer of know-how in such areas as IBM mainframe software, SAP and e-business technologies to IBA Group’s Czech IT professionals.
