Welcome to St. Petersburg


I would like to welcome you to St. Petersburg, the city which in addition to its world famous architectural and cultural heritage has become a recognized center for information technologies. St. Petersburg historically accommodates a number of leading technical Universities and has strong R&D traditions as well as a developed community of commercial software development companies. The citys contribution to the development of new hi -tech businesses is probably the most significant in Russia. St. Petersburgs leading software development companies, including PROMT, Speech Technology Center, Transas Technologies, occupy leading positions on the world ICT market. Such service companies as Reksoft, DataArt, Lanit-Terkom, First Line Software are constantly rated among the World Top 100. The headquarters of the National Association of Software Developers RUSSOFT, which unites more than 70 companies from different regions of Russia, is located in St. Petersburg. Elgiz Kachaev Chairman - Committee for Entrepreneurship and Consumer Market Development - Government of St. Petersburg I am very proud to present you an overview of the St. Petersburg Software and Information Technology Services Industry which includes a catalogue of ICT exporting companies from St. Petersburg. The catalogue provides up-to-date information on St. Petersburgs companies which offer software development outsourcing services in Russia as well as develop products and services for the global ICT market.

1. Industry overview
1.1 Overview of development of IT industry in St. Petersburg
Due to availability of strong technical Universities and high educational level of city residents, St. Petersburg has all important preconditions for becoming a global leader in IT sector. Taking into account R&D experience gained in the defense industry, a strong IT industry with software development as its key element has already emerged in St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg software vendors occupy leading positions in different segments of the world IT market: PROMT (automated translation), Speech Technology Center (voice recognition, analysis and synthesis of speech), Transas Technologies (sea navigation, virtual reality), Development Experts (instruments for financial brokers), SOLVO (systems for port and warehouse management). Such software development service providers as Reksoft, DataArt, Lanit-Tercom, First Line Software are regularly rated among the world top-100 IT-outsourcing service providers. St. Petersburg engineers make significant contribution to research and development of new solutions for world leading software, computer and telecommunication equipment vendors. They work in St. Petersburg R&D centers and laboratories of such global corporations as Siemens, HP, EMC, Motorola, Oracle, Intel, Google, T-Systems, Alcatel-Lucent, Quest and Nokia, as well as R&D centers of leading Russian IT-companies such as Yandex, Epam Systems, Luxoft, Kaspersky Labs, etc. St. Petersburg is recognized as one of the worlds leading software development centers. Thus, St. Petersburg is ranked 33d in the Top 100 Outsourcing Cities rating published by Tholons in 2013. St. Petersburg has the highest rating among Russian cities in the top 100 (Moscow is ranked 56th followed by Nizhny Novgorod and Novosibirsk). The position in this rating to a great extent depends on the number of developers in the city, cost of development and proximity to main custom development service markets rather than on quality and complexity of developed software. Therefore, St. Petersburg lags behind large cities of Southeast Asia where the cost of developer's work is much lower than in Russia while the number of developers is larger. Some cities of Eastern Europe are ranked higher than St. Petersburg due to geographical location adjacent to Western Europe. At the same time, St. Petersburg companies are experts in development of complex and knowledge-intensive solutions. Thus, St. Petersburg does not directly compete with the majority of higher-ranking cities in the Top-100 Outsourcing Cities rating. St. Petersburg competes in high-tech. According to other ratings which estimate specialization of cities in innovative areas, St. Petersburg maintains the highest rating. Thus, according to the Top-50 Emerging Global Outsourcing Cities identified by Global Services in 2009, St. Petersburg tops the list of top-5 emerging cities suitable for R&D (followed by Bangalore, Shanghai, Moscow and Dublin). St. Petersburg is also featured in two other categories leading cities for development of healthcare services and engineering services. St. Petersburg has also been named among the 10 emerging world centers in the field of product development. The Global Services analysts also note that St. Petersburg tops the list of Russian cities in investment attraction. 5 years after publication of this rating, the city has strengthened its positions as a center of high-tech development due to achievements of companies operating in the Internet segment. Both Vkontakte and Odnoklassniki, the largest Russian social networks, were created and gained world recognition in St. Petersburg. SPb Software House also emerged in St. Petersburg and became one of the most important acquisitions of Yandex as a technological leader in the field of mobile television. St. Petersburg historically accommodates a number of leading technical Universities. The city has strong R&D traditions as well as a developed community of commercial software development companies. The

St. Petersburg Software and Information Technology Services Industry St. Petersburg Foundation for SME Development member of Enterprise Europe Network | www.doingbusiness.ru

headquarters of the National Association of Software Developers RUSSOFT, which unites more than 70 companies from different regions of Russia, is located in St. Petersburg. Achievements in IT field are to a great extent attributed to high concentration of technical Universities which educate world-class engineers. During the last 13 years St. Petersburg students became absolute Champions at the ACM International Programming Contest, the most prestigious competition for software developers among Universities, seven times. In summer 2013 for the first time in history this championship was held in Russia. The strongest student teams from all over the world competed in St. Petersburg. By winning this completion St. Petersburg State University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics became fivefold world champion. St. Petersburg State Universitys team was also among the prize winners and took fifth place and a silver medal. The traditions of technological leadership and a special attitude to technology have been reflected in a large number of hi-tech startups created by the city residents. The startup boom was caused by the economic crisis of 2008. But it was also enhanced by implementation of government support measures for startups, such as establishment of venture funds, business incubators, allocation of R&D grants as well as development of so-called "accelerators" aimed at speeding up startups development and entry in the venture capital market. The citys contribution to the development of a new wave of hi-tech businesses is probably the most significant in Russia. This fact is revealed in the organization of Internet Projects Contest Web Ready which is supported by the City Government as well as a number of Russian and foreign companies. Today, this event is the largest contest of internet projects in Russia. A number of significant IT events are being regularly held in the city, including international conferences. This fact is attributed not only to the citys attractiveness as tourism and business center but also availability of large hi-tech companies and professional associations. Thus, the annual Mobile VAS & Apps conference has become the main event in Russia dedicated to mobile communication network supplementary services (including smart-phone applications) to a great extent thanks to i-Free, St. Petersburg company which is a conference co-organizer. The annual all-Russian "Geoinformation Systems in Healthcare" conference is also held in St. Petersburg. SPb CIO Club considered the most powerful regional union of CIOs organizes a unique CIO Congress White Nights event in St. Petersburg.

Key facts
Key facts:
Number of IT companies: appr 350 companies Number of export oriented IT and software companies: 250-300 companies Turnover of IT companies: 1.4 billion USD Volume of IT export: 800 million USD Talent pool: over 18,000 software developers

There are at least 350 companies and organizations in St. Petersburg which specialize in software development. 250-300 out of them have stable or at least periodic income from export. St. Petersburg industry of software development is a leader in Russia by the number and share of companies carrying out export activities. The total turnover of St. Petersburg companies and organizations generated by sales of software and software development services reached 1.4 billion USD by the end of 2012 which represents a 14% increase in comparison with 2011. Export increased to a lesser extent (appr. by 10%-12%) and has exceeded 800 million USD. The value of software development in the city economy is gradually increasing as GRP of St. Petersburg grows more slowly. In 2012 it increased by 4.5% while export income decreased by 3.2%. Software development generates 2.1% of GRP and 3.8% of the total export from St. Petersburg.

St. Petersburg provides about 16% of the total turnover of Russian software enterprises and about 18% of the total Russian software export. This fact testifies that St. Petersburg software companies are more oriented to foreign buyers and customers compared to similar companies from other Russian cities. Thus, the share of St. Petersburg in the countrys GDP constitutes only 3.4%.1 The total value of St. Petersburgs IT market equaled approximately 4.6 billion USD in 2012 or approximately 14% of the total Russian IT-market. The share of St. Petersburgs IT market in Russia is much higher than the share of GRP or population. This fact is associated with better penetration of information technologies in the city but also with the fact that software vendors and software development service providers from St. Petersburg actively sell their products and services in other cities of the country (especially, Northwest Russia) and abroad. Table 1. Key characteristics of St. Petersburg software industry

This approximately corresponds to the share of the citys population in the total number of the countrys population.

14% 420 million USD

8% 240 million USD

9% 305 million USD

St. Petersburg software companies employ about 18 thousand software engineers, including approximately 15 thousand working in head offices in the city and 3 thousand - in remote development centers of St. Petersburg companies in other cities of Russia and abroad. The productivity per one profile employee in software development industry in St. Petersburg ranges from 45 thousand to 120-130 thousand USD of the turnover (this value depends on the company specialization and size). The productivity of software vendors and R&D centers of international corporations is higher than productivity of the companies which provide software development services. As a rule, this number is also larger with bigger companies.

1.3.1

Headcount and turnover

The pyramid of the software development export industry in St. Petersburg does not have such a distinct structure compared to Moscow and Russia as a whole. R&D centers and software development centers of large international companies account for a considerable share of export production.2 Traditionally, in accordance with the corporate policy these centers do not provide any official data for surveys. Taking into consideration only the companies included in the catalogue, only 4% of the companies operating in the city are large exporters with a turnover of more than 20 million USD. The majority of the companies are medium-sized and small enterprises. 19% of respondents have a turnover from 4 up to 20 million USD, 31% of the companies have a turnover from 500 thousand up to 4 million USD, and 36% of the companies have a turnover not exceeding 500 thousand USD.

From $500 thousand up to $4 mln; 31%

Correspondingly, the majority of respondents (59%) have less than 100 people in the staff. Only 7 respondents have staff which comprises more than 500 people. 37% of respondents have in the staff less than 30 people.

Year of foundation

The majority of the largest and most well-known St. Petersburgs IT companies were established in 19901994. During this period, the country had a considerable scientific and technical backlog, which allowed to gain a market advantage over foreign competitors. However, during the subsequent period (1995-1999), the amount of established companies decreased. This fact was attributable to the exhaustion of the thenexisting R&D backlog, lack of investments into R&D sector as well as artificially high exchange rate for RUB to USD. Following the period of post-crisis economic recovery and strong RUB devaluation against USD, further establishment of a considerable number of new companies in Russia, including St. Petersburg, was noted. Unfortunately, the subsequent period (2006-2009) was characterized by unsatisfactory conditions for establishment of new export-oriented businesses. Shocks and reductions connected with the economic crisis of 2008-2009 stimulated the emergence of a large number of new hi-tech companies both in the whole country and in St. Petersburg. Besides, in recent years the government provided real support for startups which resulted in a sharp increase in the volume of allocated and venture investments. A year or two ago, the statistics of venture funds gave evidence of significant increase in the number of startups. Surveys conducted by RUSSOFT did not reveal similar growth but only because new companies got included into data-bases on which they were carried out, with some delay. In 2013 the situation has changed. The survey has shown sharp increase in the number of new companies among all respondents. If a year ago companies of 4 or fewer years on the market represented only 1% of all respondents, this year this figure is already 14%. Due to the increase of the number of startups formed in recent years, the share of companies of 5 and more years old has been considerably reduced. According to the conducted survey, 35% of St. Petersburg companies were created before 1999, 32% - in 1999-2003, 19% - in 2003-2008 and 14% - after 2008.

1.3.3

Vertical markets expertise

While participating in the survey, IT exporting companies mentioned "Information technologies" as the most common vertical market. It is explained by the high skill level of engineers in St. Petersburg companies, whose products and services compete at the most complex markets of software vendors and service providers. At least 80-90% of the companies are oriented to fulfill requests of IT-vendors for all vertical markets in 2013. The percentage of companies that use mobile operating systems (iOS, Windows Mobile, Windows Phone, Symbian) is much higher in St. Petersburg than in other Russian cities. Similar specialization on development of mobile solutions was revealed already a few years ago. Main vertical markets for St. Petersburg companies include also "Industrial production", "Services", "Education", "Telecommunications", "Health care and pharmaceutics", "Transport and logistics" and "Retail & Distribution", "Banking" and "Finance". All of them have been noted as priorities by 30% to 35% of respondents. The numbers referring to each vertical market traditionally show considerable fluctuations from year to year. This fact is attributable not only to changes in companies priorities and situation in different sectors of the world economy but also to numerous random factors. Its worth mentioning that during the last 2 years many companies are seeking for a narrower specialization which is revealed in a smaller number of main vertical markets they are represented at. Compared to Russian software industry as a whole, St. Petersburg companies more often have competences allowing them to work at such vertical markets, as "Health care and pharmaceutics", "Transport and logistics", "Banking" and "Finance.

1.3.4

Main export markets

According to the results of the research on software export industry in Russia (RUSSOFT, 2002-2013), all recent years software companies from St. Petersburg were more represented (compared to Russian companies as a whole) in Germany, Scandinavia and other countries of Western Europe. This fact is attributable to geographical and cultural proximity of St. Petersburg to the European countries that are the world's primary consumers of IT industry products.

St. Petersburg Software and Information Technology Services Industry St. Petersburg Foundation for SME Development member of Enterprise Europe Network | www.doingbusiness.ru

The survey conducted in 2012 revealed that software companies from St. Petersburg are also more active than companies from other cities of Russia in USA and Canada, Australia, Africa and South America. Table 2. Presence of St. Petersburg and Russian companies in the world markets

Investment attraction

During the last two years software companies from St. Petersburg were less actively engaged in attracting investors than companies from other Russian cities. According to the RUSSOFT survey, only 3% of St. Petersburg companies attracted investments in 2012. In the majority of Russian regions which attracted investors interest in recent years 12% of companies attracted investments in 2012 (19% - in Moscow). At the same time, St. Petersburg companies are planning to attract investments in 2013 and 2014 more often than companies from other regions. This fact reflects not so much the reduction of investment activity of software business in St. Petersburg but rather a higher level of maturity and of internationalization of local businesses. St. Petersburgs startups are often created in the main foreign markets which provide the best protection of intellectual property and conditions for business growth. It is clear that the growth of St. Petersburg startups cannot be achieved without the corresponding growth of investments. According to the Russian Venture Company (RVC), the number of investment funds in Russia increases every year, thus increasing the volume of available investment resources. During the last two years the volume of bond funds doubled annually and reached about 6.8 billion US dollars by 2013 it. The number of funds has exceeded 150. According to RVC, 70% of all transactions account for the IT industry. The total amount of transactions in 2012 constituted approximately 1 billion US dollars. Table 3.

the CIS, such as AND Project, BCC, Lank Systems, Polikom Pro, Korus Consulting, are also located in St. Petersburg. St. Petersburgs IT companies have achieved success at the Russian and world markets mainly due to high concentration of scientific institutions in the city as well as experts skilled in various fields. The development of IT companies is financed mainly by their own funds. Success of large Moscow IT companies is mostly attributed to high concentration of financial resources in the capital. Should St. Petersburgs companies receive any external investment, software developers and service companies could considerably increase sales turnover both in Russia and abroad.

R&D centers of multinational companies located in St. Petersburg

Large number of scientists and skilled experts in St. Petersburg contributed to the establishment of R&D centers and research laboratories of many foreign corporations. While these centers were mainly created during the period of 2002-2008, some of them have been already operating in the city for 12-15 years. Thus, Motorola's center opened in 1995 was the first R&D center in St. Petersburg. During the last years such global problems as, for example, sharp reductions in world market sales led to cutbacks in the number of St. Petersburgs R&D divisions of foreign corporations. Due to the companys liquidation, Borland development center was closed several years ago. Nevertheless, quality of employees' work has never been a reason that caused significant staff reductions or any centers or research laboratorys closure. On the contrary, despite the crisis and increase in labor costs, new software development centers are launched in the city every year. As a rule, foreign corporations do not share any information on operation of their Russian divisions which are engaged in advanced development and research. Sometimes, the activities of such divisions are so classified that it is difficult to get any official data neither about the field of their work nor the number of employees. Nevertheless, the existing data is enough to consider specialization of international R&D centers located in St. Petersburg. Alcatel-Lucent The Alcatel-Lucent experts working in St. Petersburg are engaged not only in development of solutions for the Russian market, but also participate in the company's global projects. They develop software solutions for corporate telecommunications, IPTV and contact centers. In the field of IPTV, a priority task lies in developing a fully functional service platform for large operators. Particularly, St. Petersburgs center develops over-the-top solutions for delivery of multimedia applications via public. As for corporate communication field of activity, the center created a group working on MyTeamwork, a product for on-line conferences. The R&D center launched from-the-scratch development of analytical solutions for the Genesys Interactive Insight contact centers. This project is interesting since extreme programming approaches were first applied in St. Petersburg on demand of Alcatel-Lucent. In cooperation with the Russian Technologies State Corporation Alcatel-Lucent established a joint venture engaged in development, production and promotion of IP protocol-based hi-tech equipment in the Russian and the CIS markets. Subsequently, the partners decided to organize production of equipment for Russian LTE networks as well as launch another research and development center in St. Petersburg (which is now integrated into the AlcatelLucent wireless solutions group). www.alcatel-lucent.com

This center has developed into an important software development outsourcing service provider, which let Exigen Services become rated among the Best 100 Global Outsourcing service providers for some years. After a certain turbulent process, the company was divided in two parts and now both of them are looking to proper business models for recovery. www.exigenservices.com Google Google's software development centers in Russia are located in Moscow and St. Petersburg. There is not much information available regarding their operation. Most likely, the centers develop solutions used by the company in Russia. However, it is known that the Russian software development centers carry out projects for the entire company. Thus, the centers possess the authorship for Google Code, a search service for programmers, as well as perform a large share of work on the Google toolbar development. www.google.com

Motorola Motorola is one of the first foreign corporations which opened a development center in Russia. The division has four basic lines of activity, including optimization and solutions for wireless platforms, automobile electronics and telematics, cellular network infrastructure, and remote access systems and solutions for them. In cooperation with a Russian holding InformInvestGroup Motorola corporation started to localize production of equipment for 4G broadband mobile communication networks. Russian experts conduct preliminary research and development for the project. www.motorola.com Nokia Nokia created a network of research laboratories in Russia at Universities and the Russian Academy of Sciences. Due to proximity to Finland, this network started to form in St. Petersburg. The Finnish company acknowledged Russian specialists expertise in certain areas where they are capable of solving assigned tasks with the same level of quality as their Western European peers. India and China are also considered as an option, however, for a more distant perspective (10 years and more). Despite the fact that the science develops rapidly in these countries, the required "historical basis" has not been acquired yet. Two related companies, Nokia and Nokia Siemens Networks, conduct research in the fields that partially overlap, though Nokia Siemens Networks division in St. Petersburg is more oriented to the field of telecommunication infrastructure. www.nokia.com Oracle Development Following the Sun Microsystems acquisition by Oracle in 2009, the Sun Microsystems center of high technologies in St. Petersburg has been functioning as Oracle Development LLC. This division's basic sphere of activity included Java technologies and development tools, in particular, applied aspects of Java, Jini, N1, J2ME, and compilers development. After the Sun Microsystems absorption, some experts suggested that specialization of its St. Petersburg center will not comply with the Oracle development strategy. However, the corporation continued to finance development in St. Petersburg. Today, the Center of High Technologies, in addition to Java, develops Fusion Middleware products, including, for example, application server and server virtualization solutions. St. Petersburgs experts are engaged in the full cycle of software development which is developed for the global market. The Oracle developers in St. Petersburg are engaged in solving complex problems that can be dealt with by very few experts in the world. www.oracle.com Siemens Communications Siemens Communications opened a joint center on the basis of two St. Petersburgs software development divisions. Siemens opened its first Russian software development center in 1997. The center was engaged in fixed telephony segment.

Human resources
Universities

The success of St. Petersburg as an R&D center in the IT field is attributed to its leading universities. According to the official data, working age population of the city equals 2.7 million people. Taking into account migrants engaged in the IT industry, this number is likely to reach 3 million people. With 33 thousand unemployed, 2.67 million people work or study in the city. Thus, more than 200 thousand people are employed in IT companies and corporate IT services. 43.6% of economically active population has higher education. 832 students account for every 10 thousand citizens of St. Petersburg.

Available infrastructure

St. Petersburg boasts favorable conditions for hi-tech businesses. The city has developed transport infrastructure, including a high-speed railway communication with Moscow and Helsinki. The international airport serves direct flights to many capitals of Western countries. A new international airport terminal is being under construction; first facilities will be put into operation in 2014. Mobile communication and Internet access in the city is comparable to Western European capitals. A large number of business centers were constructed in the city during the last 10-15 years. St. Petersburgs startups are financed from both state and private funds created to support hi-tech entrepreneurship.

1.6.1

Business enters

St. Petersburg has many modern business centers and several science and technology parks. However, the existing business centers do not satisfy the demand of the rapidly developing citys economy. The number of facilities should be increased to initiate competition and lower rent costs (today, rent costs are rather high compared to European standards). New business centers were continuously constructed during the past decade, though some projects were suspended during the crisis. As of the first quarter of 2012, the average vacancy level in the St. Petersburgs market of quality office centers grew from 7.5% to 9.3%. The growth is attributable to the large amount of class A office centers put into operation at the end of the previous year. Until the end of 2012, more than 150 thousand sq. m of offices will be put into operation which will allow to increase the rentable area of quality offices up to 1,910 thousand sq. m.

Support for startups

Last few years have seen a considerable increase in financing of new Russian hi-tech companies from both state and private funds (venture, seed, pre-seed). Some funds are becoming 2-3 times greater every year. New funds have been established, state programs for small business support have been launched. Increase in financing is primarily associated with the local and federal authorities decision to support high-tech businesses. Both Russian and foreign private companies and venture funds have supported this decision. St. Petersburgs startups receive financial support from both regional and federal sources. For example, the Speech Technology Center's subsidiary enterprise was among the first recipients of grants for advanced research from Skolkovo Foundation which was established in spring 2011. SPEEREO offered Skolkovo its subsidiary company's project, which was awarded the first grant from the joint fund created by RVC and Microsoft. Besides, several business incubators with focus on hi-tech businesses operate in St. Petersburg. The most active business incubators are the QD Inter-University student business incubator (in the technology park of the National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO)), Ingria (a division of the similarly-named technology park under construction), and the First St. Petersburg business incubator. If not yet solved, the problem of startups support in St. Petersburg is being actively solved in the city. It is possible to assume that this support will further lead to the growth of new hi-tech companies' export.

1.10 Sector SWOT analysis


Strengths St. Petersburgs education system has indisputable world recognition, especially in terms of preparation of highly qualified students winning International Programming Contests. During the last years, IT industry acquired the skills necessary for pursuing international business. The industry leaders have geographically distributed development centers which allows them to provide project management across different regions of the world 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The city's enterprises possess competence which covers the needs of a wide range of sectors of the world economy. They master various programming technologies and have experience working with different platforms. Coupled with broad basic education, it allows St. Petersburgs companies to quickly adapt to the global market changes and be competitive in new market segments. Not surprisingly, both Russian social network projects Vkontakte and Odnoklassniki, which captured Russian market following Facebook, were developed in St. Petersburg. Likewise, St. Petersburgs companies Spb Software and Zed Russia achieved leading positions at the Russian market of mobile device software development. Development Opportunities The perspectives of IT industry development are, first of all, associated with cooperation (partnership) with the city administration to increase the number of qualified IT staff. This partnership should be aimed at improving the performance of higher education institutions. It should also be aimed at co-financing staff retraining from the economy sectors with a surplus of qualified specialists as well as systematic staff increases in existing companies. Weaknesses Due to its insufficient development, the domestic IT market in Russia does not allow Russian companies to increase their turnover and profit as well as competences necessary for aggressive foreign market entry. Coupled with the lack of government support aimed at global market entry, this fact deprives Russian IT developers of competitive position at the world market. Staff shortage, which became evident with the growth of turnover in 2010-2012, leads to an increase in development costs in St. Petersburg and reduces development opportunities which require considerable staff resources for prompt product market placement.

Risks The risks that could hinder further development of IT industry are mainly associated with possible deterioration of the general economic and social situation in the country which could be caused by the second wave of crisis (decrease in budget receipts from natural reserves and subsequent decrease in financing of science, education and innovation development). Such changes would further lead to IT businesses withdrawal from the country and emigration of engineers and entrepreneurs.
