Russia actively participates in the development of digitalization of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and joint work within the framework of the EAEU digital agenda leads to the rapid development of IT companies and the promotion of products of the state program “Digital Kazakhstan”.
As a result, the implementation of the state program “Digital Kazakhstan following the results of 2019 was attracted 32.8 billion tenge into the innovative ecosystem and created 50 thousand jobs, and the economic effect amounted to 714.3 billion tenge.
About 200 digital projects are being implemented in the mining and metallurgical complex and manufacturing industry, including 12 model digital factories. One of the key programs where cooperation between Kazakh and Russian business is most active is the Digital Mine.
The Digital Mine project is a breakthrough in improving productivity through digital innovation. Among the expected results of the project are lower production costs, managing working capital, increasing staff motivation and productivity, increasing the efficiency of equipment use, and ensuring the safety of production personnel.
One example of cooperation between the two states is the introduction of modern digital systems at JSC AK Altynalmas. As part of the Digital Mine project, the Russian company Tsifra for the first time at an industrial enterprise across the CIS has made the transition to a fully digital format for working with data using electronic digital signature (EDS). Implementation of the solution is carried out immediately by several units of the Tsifra group of companies, including a subsidiary of VIST Group, as well as VIST Asia, the company's office in Kazakhstan. Together with the specialists of JSC AK Altynalmas, work was carried out to deploy the System on the company's servers, as well as to train personnel in working in software, testing and finalizing software.
Cooperation between states is not only at the company level, but also affects the scientific sphere. At the end of 2019, Tsifra, together with Nazarbayev University (Kazakhstan) and KAMAZ PJSC, completed a major international project to create a robotic truck tractor based on the Kamaz 5490 Neo. Developers from the University added a computer vision system to the functionality of the car, with the help of which the car can recognize various objects - people, animals, road fences.
