(no votes)

The seventh rating of the largest IT Companies in Russia "CNews100" has been now published. By results of this rating ITG Holding (Inline Technologies Group) which structure includes such well-known companies in the Russian bank market as INPAS – integrator of payment solutions, PST Company – supplier of outsourcing services for bank equipment and IT-outsourcing and PEAK Systems – multivendor software developer, has entered the "TOP-twenty" companis, taking 18th place. The total sales revenue of the hundred largest domestic IT-players following the results of 2008 have grown by 16,7%.

"Top-10" IT Companies according to "CNews100" raiting keeps steadily it's share in the total sales revenue at the level of about 60%, against 58% in 2007. The share of  "TOP-20" practically has not changed — 74,3% in 2008 against 74,6% the year before. Here "Envizhn Grup" has shown 89% of growth , "Kaspersky's Laboratory - 73%, and 65% - Inline Technologies Group.

General growth of the market has slowed down approximately by 50% in comparison with 2007, but it's still good results, compare to what the market expects to receive in recession, experts believe. In a context of recent economic events which too place in 3-4 quarter of 2008, growth, in general, is quite good, consider CNews Analytics, authors of the rating. However in comparison with results of previous years it looks poor – practically at the level of 2004 (14,4%). Just to remind that in 2006 the growth had peaked to 33,7%,  and a year before – 30,4%.

Most optimistic forecasts are seen in IT-Services sector, which was also in previous years a push-engine in the Russian IT market. Here following the results of 2009 experts even anticipate a small growth (or insignificant recession – under the most pessimistic forecasts). On general expectations, IT Outsourcing becomes the basic driver here.

Among steady trends it is necessary to note a growth of popularity in IT Services as a principal type of activity of the largest Russian IT companies. Many companies, specifying earlier "Integration" as a priority direction of activity, now prefer the "IT-service" category.
