Azerbaijan's rapidly advancing information technology (IT) is overtaking neighboring countries, particularly some of the former Soviet states, Deputy Director of the DIS Group Consulting Division Sergei Yevtushenko told Trend.
According to him, the UN included Azerbaijan in the list of top countries for digital governance and online services back in 2020.
"The country is focused on proven and reliable technologies through using foreign experience at optimal costs. In addition, IT specialists adopt world expertise and apply the acquired knowledge both in technologies and in approaches to project implementation, infrastructure development, and building the IT support landscape," Yevtushenko said.
He added that Azerbaijan's applying foreign experience doesn't negate the success in developing its own ideas and innovations, especially in education, technological innovations, and intellectual property.
