Expert Magazine, a leading Russian business weekly, profiles DataArt executives, COO Mikhail Zavileysky and EVP Alexei Miller, in two feature articles dedicated to market competition and innovation. According to Zavileysky, the key component of current competition is not only among target markets, but also on HR and capital markets. The focus on the latter is part of DataArt success, and one of the reasons the company managed to overcome the Internet bubble of late 90s. Miller discusses innovation, and company’s position as an expertise-based outsourcing provider. While some clients understood the uniqueness of the company’s offering, a large cluster of buy-side companies are still unaware of “smart brains” offer and continues to insist on staff augmentation. Crossing this divide in perception is one of the major strategic initiatives at DataArt.
