With the departure of Western companies, domestic developers and vendors have a window of opportunity in the form of a huge order for new solutions. This work is funded, among other things, by the state and definitely makes a significant contribution to the achievement of technological sovereignty, the importance of which Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly spoken about. Today, the Government and relevant ministries are in close contact with the industry in order to ensure its further growth and development,” said Dmitry Chernyshenko.
He also mentioned that Russians have a growing interest in IT professions. During the year, 100 thousand people moved to the IT industry from other areas, changing their profession. In 2022, more than 117 thousand students were admitted to universities for undergraduate and specialist degree programs in IT training at the expense of the federal budget, which is 3.2 thousand more than in 2021.
