On October 24, Alexis Sukharev, Auriga’s President, participated in the round table discussion organized as a part of the Business Forum held during one ofthe largest Moscow annual IT and Telecom exhibitions—InfoCom-2007. The Business Forum participants from the Russian government, mass media, consulting and investment companies, and the leading Russian electronics, software and IT service companies discussed the future of the Russian ICT industry in general, and IT outsourcing in particular. The experts agreed that due to the worldwide recognition of Russian high-end technical skills, engineering culture and good cultural fit for Western customers the country occupies its unique high-end services niche. The lack of the government support impedes dynamic expansion of the IT outsourcing companies and doesn’t allow the country to become one of the global outsourcing leaders in terms of the market share. Auriga’s President shared his view on why Russia’s software exports volume is far behind those of India and China and exactly which government regulations would benefit the industry market share growth in the global market. By common consent, with the government support, Russia is able to strengthen its position in the global outsourcing market.
