- Portugal is rated a winning Nearshore Outsourcing destination compared to eg Romania, Poland, Hungary, and Spain
- Good stable infrastructure, Governance, IP protection, and EU location.
- High number of skilled SW developers available in the market - and they can be headhunted to work for our clients
- Mainframe is widely available. Probably largest accessible talent pool of Mainframe Developers and Engineers within EU
- Qualified talent pool. Many strong IT Universities with long tradition, adding 5-6000 IT graduates yearly.
- Good English skills - especially within IT sector. As relatively small and international/open country, Portuguese people are accustomed to speaking English.

- Nice location for stakeholders to visit : in order to have a strong Onshore/Nearshore cooperation, stakeholders need to travel regularly to the Nearshore location, and they should desire to travel there, instead of seeing it as a burden. Only in this way can a strong long term cooperation between HQ and Nearshore be created. Portugal is a very nice place to visit.
