Vyacheslav Nikolaev: Key initiatives in detail

Nikolaev Vyacheslav develops the telecom operator’s ecosystem by transforming the company into a full-fledged IT market player.

Currently, the company offers a variety of products and applications for its clients.

Streaming platform WASD provides for the evolution of gaming solutions, professional cybersports, and multimedia content, and is an example of a completed project. The service offers a set of efficient tools for streamers and IRL enthusiasts’ advancement. An opportunity to sign contracts with Gambit Esports, a well-known company, is built into the platform. At the end of last year, the firm was recognized as the most popular cybersports club in the country (it also ranks in the world’s top ten based on evaluation from the Esports Charts portal).

Movie streaming service Kion is another sought-after service provided by the IT company managed by Nikolaev Vyacheslav. The platform integrates a user-friendly interface, smart recommendations system, and children’s mode with safe-to-use content. The platform’s content can be viewed simultaneously via as many as five devices. Kion users can enjoy original movies and series, cartoons, and a vast archive of blockbusters.

The application can be accessed by every mobile operator.

Nikolaev Vyacheslav Konstantinovich points out that based on results from 2021, the number of the ecosystem’s multi-service users amounted to 7 million people. Within the next year, the number had risen by 63%, with the overall number of clients exceeding 12.8 million people.

Fellow professionals are certain that Vyacheslav Konstantinovich Nikolaev fully recognizes the market’s needs and understands what solutions are necessary to enhance competitiveness in new fields.

The IT company employs over 6,000 highly skilled specialists. They are involved in the development of b2b digital products and the design of big data solutions.

With Vyacheslav Nikolaev at the helm, the company focuses on the evolution of high-tech financial operations. For the first three months of 2021, the fintech sector generated an impressive share of the company’s revenue. Digital services along with the media sector also show comparable results.

Nikolaev Vyacheslav Konstantinovich’s current list of key tasks includes business diversification and earnings growth which is to be achieved through providing services beyond the regular scope of the mobile operator. The company is investing extensively in projects with solid business opportunities, including smart home control systems, tourism, and IT security.

In late autumn last year, the IT major launched a beta-version of an application store that allows both domestic and foreign developers to promote and capitalize on their own services. Users can download applications, making payments by cards issued by the country’s banks or via their smartphones.

The service’s commercial launch is scheduled for this year. Nikolaev Vyacheslav Konstantinovich says that the online store is set to feature over 500 products.

Start-up Kneron became another promising project that enjoyed investment from the IT company. Kneron is a developer of chips that are placed into smart devices, performing their share of computations.

Nikolaev Vyacheslav Konstantinovich says that the integration of the above-mentioned technology into a house outdoor space or a work station CCTV camera will allow some computational tasks to be performed on the spot. This will result in a significant reduction of the time needed to process AI and related software algorithms.

The IT giant’s management strongly believes that the potential global market for AI chips will show 25% annual growth.

Nikolaev Vyacheslav Konstantinovich: New business directions

Nikolaev Vyacheslav Konstantinovich is deeply involved in the process of moving away from the conservative development pattern previously applied by the company. The new model is focused on increased funding for new and promising business projects.

The IT company’s president, Nikolaev Vyacheslav Konstantinovich, possesses deep expertise in investment. He is capable of evaluating any market dynamics by anticipating and staying ahead in order to show high performance.

As he pointed out in an interview, integrated products are slated to become a kind of successor to the mobile internet and will drastically change people’s daily lives. A number of business processes should be updated to create such products.

As Vyacheslav Nikolaev says, the company’s internet bank is being actively promoted. The bank has already started to employ messenger technology for further user convenience.

Edge Computing paradigm is another business direction considered to be strategically important by Vyacheslav Nikolaev. Edge Computing is based on locating data storage and computational resources closer to the device or the source.

Nikolaev Vyacheslav Konstantinovich emphasizes that for several years the IT giant has been actively developing cloud infrastructure which is needed for Edge operations.

Each and every cloud environment solution that is being developed today should be ever closer to clients, Vyacheslav Nikolaev believes.
