Digital transformation - a thorough revolution in the development of the Russian economy and society
Mobility has changed dramatically. More than 57% of the people in the country already have a mobile device. More than 40% of traffic is generated by mobile devices, not by desktops [...] This means growth in computing power and certainly tremendous taste and interest among people of all ages and social groups — Maxim Akimov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation.
We have a unique chance to make the country one of the leaders not only in terms of digitalization, but in terms of people’s quality of life from the perspective of their interaction with the state and the preservation of the life, health, and the time of our dear fellow citizens — Herman Gref, Chief Executive Officer, Chairman of the Executive Board, Sberbank.
Data has turned into an asset. Today, data is the gold and oil of the 21st century, and whoever learns to work with it faster, process it, cluster it, and make the relevant products from it that creates added value will be out in front in this regard — Mikhail Mishustin, Head, Federal Tax Service (FTS of Russia).
The digital region is not simply a digital government and a digital state. We must also help our industries to digitize themselves because it’s a matter of our competitiveness — Andrey Nikitin, Governor of Novgorod Region.
