Russian World-Class IT-Solutions: Our Response to Global Challenges

16 Jun , 15:00–16:15
Modern Technology for Humanity: Building a Responsible Future
Pavilion G, conference hall G7

The departure of major international IT companies from the Russian market and Western sanctions have raised the issue of achieving technological independence of Russia as soon as possible. Now the share of foreign software in key sectors of the economy and social sphere is unacceptably high. Efforts to achieve such independence are already underway; in particular, strategies for digital transformation in 13 key sectors of the economy and the social sphere have been approved. At the same time, work on turning domestic high-tech solutions, including software, into global leaders should be carried out in parallel. Successful implementation of both strategies – import substitution and import advancement – is possible only with the cooperation of big business and the government. Are all industries technologically prepared to replace ready-made foreign solutions with domestic developments? How long will it take to completely switch to domestic digital solutions? What problems do domestic businesses face when scaling their projects in foreign markets? How is the process of cooperation between developers and consumers of domestic software structured? What state support measures do companies need to fully transition to domestic digital solutions and increase exports of such solutions?
