The annual SOFTOOL exhibition is an event for IT market professionals at which at least 300 Russian and foreign companies present their latest IT products for all sectors of the Russian economy. The exhibition has earned nationwide status not just because of its location but also - judging by the range of participants - for serving to preserve and foster the nation's intellectual potential.
The Federal Agency for Information Technologies and the Federal Agency for Science and Innovations awarded certificates of honor and prizes to companies and individuals taking the lead in the national IT market. The awards ceremony took place in the Presidium building of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow.
1C Company, Galaktika Corporation (winners in the Company of the Year category), FineReader - ABBYY, Kaspersky Antivirus 5.0 (Product of the Year category), Boris Nuraliyev (Person of the Year category), and IBM and Microsoft in Russia were among prizewinners. RBC SOFT won a certificate of honor and prize "for the steadiest growth." The award is intended to recognize the sector's highest annual turnover growth rates for the past four years, as confirmed by audits.
"Today, the best of the best have been awarded," Yury Gulyayev, chairman of the exhibition steering committee and member of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said at the awards ceremony. "The prizewinners' achievements are viewed as development guidelines for the whole IT sector. Our task is not only to acknowledge their attainments, but also to facilitate their earliest-possible implementation on the Russian market."
