Auriga and Prisma Consulting Oy conduct a seminar on Nearshore Outsourcing at Helsinki, January 21st

As a poster child of Russian outsourcing industry, Auriga explores every avenue in it’s zeal to promote Russia as the most attractive and reliable R&D outsourcing destination. Our representatives contribute to various industry events, eager to discuss all aspects of nearshoring to Russia from general considerations on choosing software R&D provider, myths and realities of Russian IT industry, to practical tips on managing outsourced software development projects. The most demonstrative example of the former year is the participation in the Gartner Outsourcing & IT Services Summit 2009, where Auriga hosted a round-table session dedicated to Eastern Europe as outsourcing location.

This year started with a seminar on Nearshore Outsourcing issues, arranged by Auriga in collaboration with Prisma Consulting Oy that took place at Helsinki on January 21st, 2010.

The seminar was attended by CIOs, top managers, program managers and product managers, and decision-makers whose business responsibilities include managing ICT projects. The topics discussed included nearshore outsourcing R&D services advantages and disadvantages, nearshore outsourcing for startups and SMBs, and specifics of project management in Nearshoring projects.

One of the key objectives of the event was to provide the attendees with up-to-date information about today’s Russian software industry. Gennadiy Mahov, Auriga Business Development Director, delivered a presentation "Get more from past investments: Cost efficient workflow solutions on existing IT infrastructure". The presentation included an overview of typical problems organizations face when implementing workflow automation solutions, a case study based on Auriga’s experience, and highlights of Russia’s nearshoring strengths.

The interest of Finnish customers to Russian outsourcing service providers is anything but unexplainable. Russia represents a tenable outsourcing location for Finland – being one of its nearest neighbors, providing cultural proximity and cost efficiency. All this is topped by Russia's best practices in outsourcing and well-known technical excellence.

"I have a very positive impression of the event. As a speaker at the seminar, I was extremely glad to answer the questions from the audience. They clearly demonstrated that the customers nowadays consider all strong and weak sides of various providers, bearing in mind the particular tasks to be solved along with the long-term business goals of the project, not just the cos., and make decisions based on the balanced approach that is known as 'right-sourcing'," – comments Gennadiy Mahov, Auriga's Business Development Director.
