Igor Boychenko on Import Substitution in IT and the Future of Russian DBMSs
On April 19-21, 2016, EXPO COMM Russia 2016, the largest Russian expo in the sphere of communication and IT, was held in Moscow, and Igor A. Boychenko, General Manager of RELEX Group, made a report on the prospects of technological import substitution and the advantages of the Russian DBMS Linter.
This year, the key event at the expo was the International Info-Media Communication Forum. Igor Boychenko, General Manager of RELEX Group, made a report in the “Import Substitution Strategies” section, pointing out the distinguishing features of Linter (no borrowed code; reliable data protection, resource saving, multi-platform capabilities, embeddability, fault-tolerance and proficient technical support) and outlining the prospects for creating Linter-based import substitution technologies. " Migration to a Russian DBMS implies security requirements, modernization of architectural solutions, and support of effective development and life cycle of corporate systems. For this purpose, we need a strategy for developing a Russian DBMS school independent of borrowed third-party code and free software solutions", - commented Igor Boychenko.
DBMS Linter is developed by RELEX since 1990. This is the only DBMS in Russia created without using third-party source code and certified by the Russian FSTEC and Ministry of Defense as compliant with Class 2 and 3 data security requirements and Level 2 of undeclared capabilities absence control. In December 2015, RELEX received the National Import Substitution Prize, and in March 2016 DBMS Linter was included in the Uniform Register of Russian Software.
EXPO COMM tradeshows have been held for over 20 years. This year, Expo Comm-22 in Russia was organized as an international expo and innovative information and communication technology conference. The expo included four sections: Communication Infrastructure, Communication as a Service, Digital Services, and IT Availability. Over 200 representatives of the IT community from 15 countries held part in the event this year.
