ASTANA – Kazakh businesses and regional executive bodies signed agreements with Belarus-Russian Galaktika, a leading Eastern European technological company, on the fringes of the Astana Economic Forum. The memoranda, inked by Transtelecom, Zerde, the national info-communications company, Astana Innovations and the West Kazakhstan region akimat (administration), will serve as a starting point for the country’s intensive digitisation.
The agreement with Transtelecom provides both companies with long-term and mutually beneficial cooperation. The main task is to increase locally developed IT solutions within Transtelecom’s informational resources, with Galaktika’s systems serving as the developmental base for new products.
Zerde will partner with Galaktika to actively work within the Astana Hub of IT startups to create and implement joint projects to develop municipal infrastructure. Astana Innovations seeks to adapt and execute the company’s most advanced solutions into capital infrastructure projects.
The West Kazakhstan region akimat will develop, introduce and promote Galaktika-based IT solutions to digitise industrial enterprises, service companies, universities and regional and municipal infrastructure.
Galaktika’s principal products correspond to Industry 4.0 requirements and introducing them can help solve complex goals for local enterprises.
Galaktika has been actively working in Kazakhstan since 1995 and plans to establish a new office in the city in addition to the main one in Almaty. In the past 20 years, the corporation has worked with leading Kazakh mining, oil and gas and energy production companies.
Under the fourth industrial revolution, Kazakhstan seeks to develop and test new instruments aimed at modernising and digitising local industrial enterprises. The plan also includes adapting innovation centres and improving legislation, education, communication and standardisation systems to their needs.
