Bagdat Mussin: Kazakhstani IT market is already presented by more than 10 thousand IT companies and 150 thousand employees

The Minister of Digital Development, Innovation and Aerospace Industry Bagdat Mussin spoke at the Opening Ceremony of the International Digital Forum “Digital Almaty-2023”.

Digital Almaty has already become a unique platform – the meeting place of business representatives, international experts, and the IT community.

One of our key priorities is the development of the IT industry. The Kazakhstani IT market already has about 10 thousand IT companies and 150 thousand employed in the industry. 

“One IT employee creates 3 job positions in related industries,” said Bagdat Musin.

He stressed that the Forum is about current trends in the IT industry and the best solutions for practical application.

The Minister noted that in the modern world, IT helps to solve many problems and creates the most comfortable living conditions. Therefore, the state is actively working on digital transformation, not only in economic sectors or general processes but also in business processes at all life stages of a citizen.

Akim of Almaty Yerbolat Dossayev in his greeting stressed that Almaty, as the largest metropolis of Kazakhstan, is confidently following in the wake of digital transformations. The level of digitalisation in the city is one of the highest in Kazakhstan: 96% of public services are provided in digital format and this figure keeps increasing.

“Important projects for the further development of Almaty are other systemic platform solutions that will improve the management of the city. This is the Unified Data Storage of the city, the Unified Geoanalytics Platform. A unified video monitoring system will cover up to 80% of Almaty this year. And this is not digitalization for the sake of digitalization, but, first of all, it is about the creation of a comfortable urban environment and ensuring the safety of our citizens and guests of the city,” Dosayev emphasized.

Digital Almaty is a traditional dialogue platform for discussing the digital agenda, new strategies for digital transformation, and trends in digital technology. The forum has been held for the fifth time since 2018. The event is organized by the Ministry of Digital Development, Innovations and Aerospace Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Akimat of Almaty City, Tech Garden and Astana Hub
