Abstract: The purpose of the current thesis is to analyze why Romania is an attractive IT provider within the European outsourcing environment. The reason consists of the need of finding evidence for Romania as being a preferred market where western European companies choose to externalize their IT activities and projects. Firstly, the thesis focuses on Romania because of the lack of relevant studies for this market within the European IT environment. This thesis aims to highlight the status of Romanian IT providers and the challenges they might face. The initial hypothesis consists of the idea that Romania represents a strong IT provider for the western European companies which consider this market an opportunity to keep the business in Europe, close to the territory where the core activities run, position straightened by the low cost of human resources and high level of expertise. The importance of conducting such analyzes for Romania is backed up by the Brainbench report. Brainbench, one of 'the global leaders in online testing published the result of its extensive database of more than 3.5 million registered users to identify the countries and geographic regions with the highest concentrations of certified professionals in 30 of the most critical information technology skill areas' (Brainbench, 2002). This study brings into discussion the fact that Romania is a good outsourcing destination for its IT certified professionals, not just the cost saving reason.
