Auriga Reinforces Russia Presence with New Regional Software Development Center in Nizhny Novgorod

Auriga, Inc, the oldest U.S.-Russian software outsourcing company, celebrated its 15th anniversary by opening a new state-of-the-art technology facility in Nizhny Novgorod. In its constant drive to deliver high-class software development services and attract top-notch professionals at competitive costs, Auriga is successfully expanding its regional presence in Russia. In 2004, Auriga established a software development center in Kazan, well known for its universities with a solid tradition of professional IT training and education.

Nizhny Novgorod, one of the largest educational and research complexes in Russia, accommodates an integrated system of higher education, a lot of scientific research labs, military plants and electronic products companies. Nizhny Novgorod hosts Russia’s leading universities that prepare more than a thousand highly qualified graduates annually. Nizhny Novgorod offers a great combination of a rich intellectual environment, a huge IT labor pool with an unmatched creative potential and a solid infrastructure. Therefore, the choice of a site for Auriga’s new software development facility was evident.

"Nizhny Novgorod has the right mix of businesses and a great talent pool for us, as we at Auriga have always been looking for highly educated individuals. Overall, Nizhny Novgorod has the combination of all the characteristics to establish a foothold really quickly and grow at the rate we expect," comments Alexis Sukharev, Auriga President and founder. “Our aim is to fully satisfy the needs of our clients while strictly adhering to their requirements and budgets. We leverage our wealth of experience in the regions with best practices implemented by our project management infrastructure,” he follows.

The new software development center is located on the territory of the first IT park in Nizhny Novgorod. On February 16, 2006, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin visited this IT park, which undoubtedly proves its importance and significance for the Russian IT industry.

“Software design and production is the new area of global competition today. This offers Russia great opportunities because we have world-class specialists in applied mathematics and programming,” Vladimir Putin said during his visit. “Developing information technology today is not just a big task on our agenda; it is a strategic objective in every sense of the word. Making this development reality will require the government to take a number of important steps,” he added.

The opening of the “Auriga – Nizhny Novgorod” center confirms Auriga’s continuing commitment to scaling its technology delivery capabilities to meet cutting edge customer needs. By establishing this regional software development center and getting access to a matchless intellectual, innovation and scientific-technological potential, Auriga is well positioned to achieve its objective of further strengthening the company’s software development capacity.
