AURIGA to sponsor Mass Software Council Spring Meeting featuring Mikhail Gorbachev keynote

Mikhail Gorbachev, Former Soviet Union President, and Nobel Laureate will give a keynote presentation. Boston, MA, Tuesday April 12.

March 17, 2005 – Amherst, NH, - AURIGA, one of the world’s leading software services firms with engineering centers in Russia, is proudly announcing its sponsorship of the outstanding event in Boston scheduled on April 12, 2005.

Massachusetts Software Council, the leading technology trade association in the state, holds its traditional Spring Membership breakfast. Mikhail Gorbachev, formerly President of the Soviet Union, Nobel Laureate, and the founder of the Gorbachev Foundation, will speak on the Role of IT in the Global Economy and introduce Russian software capabilities to US business audience. The breakfast will bring together several hundreds of the U.S. business technology executives as well as the top managers of largest Russian software outsourcing companies.

In 2003 Alexis Sukharev, one of the founders of RUSSOFT, National Software Development Association of Russia, became the creative power of both signing Protocol of Agreement for Mutual Cooperation between RUSSOFT and New England Software Associations and organizing this Software Council Spring Meeting in Boston.

“This year’s exceptional event is the next significant step to bring booming Russian IT industry to the attention of New England business community”, - shares Alexis Sukharev. “Mikhail Gorbachev is well known as the 20th century leader who ended the Cold War, promoted the end of communism in the Eastern Europe and opened the ‘Iron Curtain’ between East and West. Nowadays Mr. Gorbachev is one of the world’s most recognized public figures and his participation in the upcoming event in Boston is rather remarkable for both the business audience focused on Russia and the representatives of Russian IT industry. We hope that this meeting will become one of those mutually beneficial occasions that provides rich business opportunities to all participants by breaking up a new ground for further cooperation in the area of IT between the US and Russian businesses”.
