SME Digitalization: Digital Development and Digital Inequality
We have programmes that we have already launched in the Ministry of Finance. The first one is concessional lending, the programme is underway. <...> We have a huge request from small businesses for concessional lending, and we lowered the bar from 20 million [roubles] as the lower limit of credit to 5 million [roubles]. <...> In addition to the fact that we lowered the bar for credit for small businesses, we lowered the bar for regional banks. <...> A preferential credit with 1 to 5% concessional rate – we have already granted credits for 41 billion, the average rate is 2.63%. <...> The second area we are now launching is the provision of cloud services for small businesses at a preferential rate. The state will take 50% of the cost of the license for the most popular domestic solutions. <...> We plan to launch the programme in June. According to our KPI, RUB 1 billion has been allocated for such compensation of 50%. This is not a small amount: according to our KPI, the figure for this year is 63,000 licenses that we have to provide. This is such a challenge for us

Digital State: New Business Models Brought by Total Digitalization
Working on superservices, we get four cross-cutting results. The first one is regulation, that is changing legislation <…> The second one is common business processes that are inevitably transforming when we talk about complex services. The third one is technologies, that is requirements for information systems that also must be designed in a cross-cutting manner <…> The fourth one is data. What data do we need? And also there is a question, who has the right to provide access to these data?
