DataArt COO Speaks at the 2007 Ukrainian Outsourcing Forum
DataArt COO Mikhail Zavileysky was a distinguished speaker at the 2007 Ukrainian Outsourcing Forum (UOF), where he lead a business seminar entitled Alternative Business Models for Market Competition.
Zavileysky discussed proven business models that allowed DataArt to become one of the leaders among Eastern European providers, with 14 consecutive quarters of organic growth, which include human capital management, investment strategies and CRM & networking as means for increasing market penetration.
The sold out presentation also addressed investment strategies of different providers, as well management and protection of assets. Zavileysky illustrated his points with case studies from DataArt history, including successful crisis management during the Internet crash; creation of Mail.ru, the largest online portal in Eastern Europe, and further expansion into key verticals through the expert use of business networking and CRM systems.
“DataArt has been represented in the Urkaine for less than a year, thus it is imperative for us to keep a hand on the pulse of Ukrainian outsourcing,” said Mikhail Zavileysky, DataArt COO. “We were thrilled that our colleagues found our ideas relevant and case studies worthy, and appreciate their invaluable input on organizational and technology practices. Special thanks go to representatives of Microsoft, who are true facilitators of developing the industry’s ecosystem.”
The objectives of The Annual Ukrainian Outsourcing Forum 2007 in Kiev are to boost the market for software development and outsourcing services, to discuss global trends in IT markets, and to address current issues in the outsourcing arena.
