The concept of development of IT-technologies is approved in Yakutia

The Economic Council under the Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) approved the concept of development of IT-technologies in the region, the press service of the regional administration reports with reference to the YSIA news agency. The authors of the project are confident that this will allow to get an economic effect in Yakutia and bring it to the global market in the field of software development.

“The penetration of information technologies into the economy by 10% contributes to an increase in the gross regional product by 1,2%,” stressed Maxim Trofimov, chairman of the State Committee for Ministries of Innovation.

According to him, today in Yakutia, only a third of IT-specialists get a job in the main profile. For this reason, they are forced to go to other regions.

“Yakutia, with the talented programmers available, cannot boast of a large flow of IT solutions broadcast outside the republic,” a representative of the State Committee noted the current state of the industry.

He noted that in the republic the costs of state and business on informatization would be much less if local personnel participated in the software development.

To fix the situation, programmers need full-fledged conditions for work. In particular, the Economic Council discussed the creation of an IT park and a network of regional coworking centers, where it is possible to organize a rational workflow, as well as access to the data processing center and IT companies support at the initial stage. As a result, the number of IT companies will increase, their income and export opportunities will increase.
