At the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, in the presence of the State Secretary under the French Minister of Economy and Finance, Delphine Geni-Stephann a memorandum on strategic partnership between AstroSoft (Russia, member of the non-commercial partnership RUSSOFT) And LINAGORA (France) was signed.

The goal of the cooperation is to develop a universal open communication platform that will create an alternative to existing proprietary platforms of leading foreign vendors.

The signing was attended by:

Alexander Zapolsky, CEO of LINAGORA.

Pavel Vasiliev, CEO of AstroSoft.

Delphine Geni-Stephann, State Secretary of France.

"The signing of the cooperation memorandum between the St. Petersburg company and the company from France, especially on the topic that purports to form an alliance with the ambitions of global competition, speaks of a new level of cooperation with Russia in the field of high technologies," commented Valentin Makarov, RUSSOFT.

Pavel Vasiliev, CEO of AstroSoft: "Technological independence is possible in cooperation, where everyone brings their own strongest qualities - this is how synergy is achieved. The strength of AstroSoft is, above all, mathematics as the basis for a deep understanding of programmable processes. Today, more and more professionals are needed to solve problems with a high level of uncertainty of incoming parameters and to manage multi-agent environments (= IoT), thus, the business itself requires a solid mathematical foundation. That's why Russian mathematicians are more competitive and in demand than ever, and mathematics is a new global trend. "

"Another key technology trend is the use of open source software, which has a number of significant advantages over "classic "distribution models. This allows you to use open source in the web development of technologies for both private companies and various kinds of government structures. Finally, today open source is the real engine for innovation in the IT industry, and we are confident that our cooperation with Astrosoft will bring these technologies to a new level. Another driver of cooperation is the realization of our vision of the "third digital path" - ethical, safe and independent technologies," shared Alexander Zapolsky, CEO of LINAGORA.
