IT SOURCINGEUROPE Central and Eastern Europe’s Country Profile: Slovenia
Area: 20,273 km2 Population (est. 2009): 2.006 million Human Development Index (est. 2007): 0.929 GDP/capita (est. 2009): 20,588€ GDP growth rate (est. 2009): -0,11% IT Outsourcing market value (est. 2009) – 10.3€ million GENERAL DATA
* Based on the 2009 Legatum Institute estimation PROSPERITY INDEX*
The software market in Slovenia is projected at EUR 165 million in 2010, with a return to low single growth following a sharp deceleration in 2009.
Slovenia is a relatively mature software market for the CEE region, and the relative saturation (79%) of the large-enterprise market in terms of basic enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications should encourage vendors to look to other products to maintain growth, or else to focus more on vertical specialization.
In 2009, despite the economic downturn, IT services companies continued to benefit from IT projects tendered across various sectors ranging from the public sector to banks, education, retail and financial institutions. In the long term, the IT services market is set to expand as Slovenian organizations upgrade IT systems to gain or maintain competitive advantage following EU accession.
