Lviv IT Cluster together with the sociological agency FAMA has started working on a thorough sociological research called IT Research 2017 which aims to show the economic impact IT industry has on other industries. All IT companies based in Lviv can take part in the research.
This year’s IT Research aims to find out the interconnection and economic impact of IT industry on related industries, in particular, what are the revenues other industries receive due to the activities of Lviv-based IT companies, for instance, real estate and health insurance industries etc. The research will also focus on spendings of IT companies and individual IT employees in order to understand what do they spend the most money on – investments, shopping, real estate, leisure, transport etc.
In addition, the research will help to update information about the number of IT companies and IT employees in the city since the industry is constantly growing. According to the previous IT Research completed in 2015, there were 15 000 IT employees in Lviv with 192 IT companies operating in the city. There are unconfirmed data that the number of IT employees has increased up to 20 000 people working at more than 250 IT companies.
“IT Research will help Lviv IT Cluster understand in which direction we have to work right now. We repeatedly say that one workplace in IT creates 4 jobs in the related industries. With the help of IT Research, we will be able to prove this with the statistical data. We will get a clear vision of how IT industry in Lviv looks today and how it affects the life of the city and its citizens” – says Stepan Veselovskyi, CEO at Lviv IT Cluster.
