In Russia, cloud technologies do not yet play the role that they do in other parts of the world. In 2012, the total volume of the global market in the field of cloud technologies amounted to about 40 billion dollars. According to experts, by 2020 this figure will increase 6-fold, while Russia only occupies the 34th rank in the world in terms of cloud computing.
“Clouds” already penetrate the domestic market, but not at the pace expected by the leaders of the IT industry. Despite the fact that the word “innovation” is very popular in Russia, the domestic business is wary of innovations in the digital sphere, therefore, cloud services are perceived in Russia as exotic that are of little use in the local economic situation.
