"As the Russian ICT market is contracting in 2015, there are already signs that it is also transforming. Sectors dependent on growth or international integration are reducing spending (government, transportation, retail, banking), while sectors focused on meeting only internal demand are growing (agriculture, pockets of local manufacturing). It also seems that we are witnessing a visible shift in IT usage models, with both economics and the regulatory environment prompting customers from many segments to shift application workloads to off-premises datacenter facilities." — Vice President Robert Farish, IDC Russia/CIS
