The “Russian Unified Register of programs for computers and databases” of the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation started its work January 01, 2016. Its main goal is to provide state support and preferences in tender participation for Russian software manufacturers. The current legislation limits the purchase of imported products by state customers, if there are Russian counterparts presented in the Register. To date, the list includes more than 1,800 positions, their number grows periodically.
The CEO of RDP.RU Sergey Nikulin said:
“The process of import substitution in IT is impossible without the active initiatives of the government. On the one hand, the great goal of national IT industry support is determined. On the other hand, there are urgent problems that require immediate solutions. If for the majority of the commercial organizations the issue of transition to domestic technology is not yet critical, some state structures today are in need of a full replacement of imported products. It opens up the new market opportunities for us as local developers which are ready to offer unique high-performance platforms for Russian customers. Some of these solutions have superior technical characteristics which surpass the products of the best world vendors.”
