Auriga listed as one of the leading service providers in IDC's latest research on Russian software development outsourcing industry

Press release from: Auriga, Inc.

IDC, the leading global provider of market intelligence, recently conducted a study which focuses on Russia as a location for offshore software development. The study bases its findings on interviews with U.S. and European firms that have outsourced development of software applications to Russian companies.

Auriga, the IT outsourcing service company with engineering centers in Russia, has been included in IDC’s research as one of the leading Russian software development outsourcing providers. Several company clients were interviewed by IDC analysts and shared their experience of working with Auriga.

Auriga’s key differentiators highlighted in the IDC research are:
• 17 years of experience in offshore software development.
• Team of highly qualified specialists (9.5 years of experience on average) with low attrition and rotation; close ties with Moscow State University and other top Russian technical universities.
• Expertise in embedded systems and system-level development for a wide range of operating systems and hardware platforms.
• Specially focused offering for high-tech companies providing refined offshore development center capabilities and flexible engagement models.

The research finds that stability of the relationship, technical expertise, and relatively low staff turnover are key advantages of Russian software development companies. Though price is often behind the initial supplier choice, these factors influence strongly the quality of service and strength of the relationship that customers value in their dealings with Russian outsourcing providers. Participating companies pointed to the availability of very well educated engineers, strong technical skills, and sound methodologies. Softer factors often mentioned included a closer cultural fit with the U.S. and Europe than Asian suppliers, similar work ethics, a clearer understanding of business issues, and similar time zones.

“Several factors work as Russia’s differentiators on the world market, such as the large pool of highly skilled professionals with mathematics and science backgrounds, capable of solving complex and math-intensive problems, and the ability of Russian companies to manage high-end, complex projects,” said Vladimir Kroa, Regional Director for IT Services Research, IDC Research. “Also, Western European and American organizations often perceive Russia as being a closer cultural fit than countries like India, China, or the Philippines.”

“The timing has been right for the research as the demand for Russian IT skills in the U.S. and Europe is increasingly growing,” said Alexis Sukharev, Auriga’s President and Founder. ”Although Russia has a long way to go to challenge India’s leadership in the offshore market, Russia is already recognized as the best outsourcing destination for a certain type of clients – high-tech and software companies. Such clients need talented engineers to work on complex tasks and experienced service providers to set up a convenient and flexible engagement model – exactly what Russia is best at. We are proud to be included by IDC in the list of the leading Russian software service providers.”
