Rosatom, 1C create joint venture, ready to offer joint IT-solutions for Russian market

MOSCOW. Aug 24 (Interfax) - Rosatom State Corporation and IT company 1C have established joint venture Greentech LLC.

According to the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, the company was registered on August 7, and its founders were CJSC 1C with a 51% stake and JSC Greenatom (an IT subsidiary of Rosatom). The charter capital of the new company stands at 160 million rubles. Sergey Smirnykh, who was previously deputy general director at RT-Inform (an IT subsidiary of Rostec), became the head of Greentech.

"The goal of the Greentech joint venture is effective automation of nuclear industry enterprises and large corporate customers using 1C technologies, best industry experience and know-how, creation of industry solutions on the "1C:Enterprise" platform and formation of a strong team of specialists for their high-quality implementation," 1C told Interfax in a statement.

"Amid a shortage of such import-independent systems [platform enterprise management systems], we offer our clients solutions tested in the nuclear industry and help them adapt them to customers' tasks," Rosatom IT Director Yevgeny Abakumov was cited as saying in a statement the company provided to Interfax. This task of using and developing industry technologies for the needs of other enterprises will be addressed by Greentech, a joint venture of 1C and Greenatom, which combines the expertise of a platform vendor with expertise in the field of technological solutions provided by one of the country's largest IT integrators," he said.

At the same time, Rosatom noted that the nuclear industry has already accumulated extensive expertise in the implementation and adaptation of heavy ERP systems at industrial enterprises, including in the context of import substitution. For example, Greenatom is already replicating the "Digital Rosatom" import-independent 1C ERP 2.0 based on "1C:ERP.Management Holding" at industry enterprises.

Rosatom sees interest in such products. "Even now there are signals from major Russian players, from state corporations, that there is a great need to implement proven enterprise-level systems. Experts access highly the potential of this market, where Greentech will be one of the companies operating," the company said.

"Heavy systems link virtually all the basic business processes that an organization has. In order to effectively adapt a basic solution to the specific needs of a large industrial company, it is necessary to draw up target business process templates and only then automate. As an IT integrator of Rosatom State Corporation, we have traveled this path within the industry, accumulated expertise in the field and are ready to enter the Russian market with it," Greenatom CEP Mikhail Ermolaev said.

At the moment, the joint venture can offer accumulated experience in implementing 1C products, but in the future it plans to offer its own developments on the 1C platform and is ready to customize solutions to meet customer needs.

1C is one of the largest developers of enterprise-class programs in Russia. In addition to developing platform solutions (e.g., 1C:Accounting, 1C: ERP.Holding Management, etc.), through participation in development companies (currently 1C owns stakes ranging from 50% to 100% in about 70 companies, and stakes of up to 50% in about 30 companies), 1C participates in the development and promotion of industry solutions (about 50) based on its products.
