The Road to IT Independence: How to Increase Trust in Domestic Developments
The current situation is becoming a window of opportunity for domestic software and hardware developers. 20 billion roubles have been allocated by the Russian Government to support investment projects dealing with the development of promising technologies and manufacture of products for industry. According to preliminary estimates, we are talking about 50 projects that are capable of replacing foreign analogues.
To strengthen the country's technological sovereignty, it is important to support existing domestic products as well as encourage businesses to develop new solutions that the domestic industry desperately needs. It is equally important to achieve a change in the consciousness of people themselves, shifting previous dogmas towards acceptance and trust in Russian products.
