It wasn’t until 18 years ago, in the 1990s that market economy emerged in Russia. That was also the time the Russian computer market started to develop. Initially, it only included several dozens of companies, one of which was PIRIT. They managed to turn the Russian computer market into a civilized one, establishing official relations with vendors and other market participants.

Russia, who lags behind developed countries in terms of computerization, seeks to catch up with them as soon as possible. The newly-emerged market has a huge capacity, and the current economic situation within the country favours a fast growth. The growth is ensured by high oil-exporting profits and support from the Russian government. Computer market growth rate is much higher in Russia than generally in the world. PIRIT was founded in 1990 and it is one of Russia’s oldest and most famous computer companies. Now PIRIT consists of a group of IT companies.
