The Sbklaud company - joint venture of Sberbank and Servionika (enters into I-Teco Group) is engaged in its development, it was said in the statement about the planned cooperation in Kalmykia.

Nevertheless, Sberbank remained the financial investor in the company and saved a 21% share in Sbklaud company based on which I-Teco continues to develop the platform of cloud services BusinessCloud. And 79% of the company belong to Servionika.

For what reason Sberbank refused to develop SberCloud within the company, joint with I-Teco, and decided to render cloud services independently, in bank do not explain.
