The IT-Sector in Portugal

Reasons to outsource your company’s IT-services to Portugal:

  • Western European culture with an international workforce, as well as above-average language skills, creates a great foundation for co-operation between Portugal and Denmark;
  • Only one-hour time difference to Denmark as well as many weekly direct flights makes communication, meetings or travel (business trips) easy, even on short notice;
  • Ranked among the best countries for offshoring and nearshoring IT-services due to the highly skilled and affordable IT workforce.
  • Leading position in connectivity due to robust technological infrastructures, accessibility and adequate legislation. Portugal is the leader in Europe regard-ing FTTP (Fiber to the Home) access – almost 90% of the territory is cov-ered.
  • Good IT education programs (Engineering). The average salary for a soft-ware engineer per year in Lisbon is lower than the salaries in several places in northern Europe such as Berlin and London.
  • The presence of the annual Web Summit has created more interest in Portu-gal as a Tech Hub which has brought several multinational companies like Cis-co and Google to Portugal.
  • Digitalization is a governmental priority; Portugal is strongly committed to the modernization of the public administration and e-government initiatives. The ‘digital revolution’ is an opportunity to increase efficiency and sustainability in the public administration
