The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Russian World-Class IT-Solutions: Our Response to Global Challenges
I can highlight a few of these major projects that we have been able to commission and actually lead. […] It is an airworthiness and maintenance information solution, almost all major airlines use a western solution [...]. The next area, which we are already dealing with, is a platform, also an information solution, for universal messaging. We were also recently disconnected from the service. We have, in fact, switched to postal exchanges, which obviously don’t work for us because of their appropriateness and the speed at which information is exchanged [...] Another of these important industry solutions is ground-to-air messaging. Russian airlines were also disconnected from it. […] There is no doubt that the aviation industry needs it, and we are ready to act as the primary customer and project driver

A subsidy mechanism for relevant IT projects, a grant-making mechanism, is certainly needed now,

Russian World-Class IT-Solutions: Our Response to Global Challenges
As of today, we are totally rethinking it (Aeroflot’s digital transformation strategy – Ed.). It calls for us, by the year 2024, to replace about 89%, probably even more, of foreign products and foreign software with Russian equivalents. The task is probably a bit ambitious, but we see it as generally feasible

Russian World-Class IT-Solutions: Our Response to Global Challenges
On 27 May, Pobeda Airlines received a notice from its provider, Navitaire, a booking system, a commercial system, that it was being disconnected completely from its services beginning 31 May. In other words, we had four days to switch to an alternative solution. We took care of it, and literally on the evening of 31 May, I think quite successfully, we switched to the domestic booking system Leonardo, a joint solution of RT-Transcom, a subsidiary of the Rostec Group, and Siren. In fact, the whole transition took a night: at 8 pm we shut down ticket sales, and by 10 am we had resumed ticket sales. I can’t say that everything was perfectly smooth, and we did experience some difficulties, but nevertheless, for such an emergency transition, I think it was a very successful experience. Yes, we are still in the process of fine-tuning some elements now. We’ve taken a one-month period to bring all the systems into line, but in the process of this transition we have replaced the booking system, we have replaced the production system, we have replaced the commercial system. [...] Fears are greatly exaggerated

The thing we’re all stressed out about, of course, is how expensive the market for IT services and IT solutions is getting now. Obviously, everyone has rushed into import substitution, we need IT specialists, we need solutions. This is a huge problem right now – keeping the cost at some acceptable level. I would really hate to see Russian IT solutions exceeding similar western solutions in terms of cost in the process of substituting for imports. I would like to draw your attention to this, and the Digital Ministry as well
