As part of the Labor Productivity national project, about 8,000 digital services are to be introduced in at least 5,000 participating large and medium-sized enterprises. Some of them will be able to connect to the digital ecosystem as early as 2021. This was stated by Aleksander Molodtsov, Director of the Productivity and Efficiency Department of the Russian Ministry of Economic Development, during the discussion "State Policy for Digitalisation of Industry". The event was part of the fifth annual Efficient Production 4.0 online practical conference.

The digital ecosystem is one of the innovations of the revised Labor Productivity national project, which is supervised by First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov. The underlying operating model will allow dozens of services and support measures to be individually configured for participants in the national project. "Our aim is to accelerate automation and digitalisation of business and production processes of enterprises. Best practices will be applied to the data obtained from companies' internal systems and digitised, including those developed by experts from the FCC (Federal Competence Centre) and RCCs (Regional Competence Centres). This will help to pinpoint the areas of concern that limit productivity growth," stressed Aleksander Molodtsov.

Today, seven pilot companies from various industries with total revenues of RUB 169.9 billion are undergoing digital business diagnostics in test mode. There are two tracks of data handling: analysing the production system and assessing the digital maturity of the processes. Dozens of productivity-enhancing services will be added in the near future. These include an information and analytics platform, a cloud computing platform, a platform for interaction with the government, an education platform and other platforms whose functionality and content will be shaped by the needs of businesses.
