Digital Transformation of Business: International Experience and Russian Practice
26 May 2018

Today, digitalization in business, government, and society allows countries to expand their presence and compete in the global market, thereby improving the quality and standard of living of their people. The Russian Association for Electronic Communications estimates that the digital economy makes up 2.42% of Russia’s 2017 GDP. The influence of Internet markets on the economy is growing by 11% annually, and there is a successful track record of digital transformation in a number of areas. Digitalization is no longer an abstract concept but a reality, and the Russian IT industry plays a major role. This business breakfast will discuss international experience, best practices in Russia, and the role of state support for digital transformation in areas that are closely integrated with modern society. What is the role of the IT industry in the digital transformation of the Russian and global economies? What are the barriers to the digital transformation of the Russian economy and what can be done to overcome them? What are some examples of successful practices and what are the prospects for international cooperation?
