Creation of the company and transfer of developers in it is a part of strategy of informatization of Promsvyazbank. From bank passed 150 people into ITsBT.

The strategy of informatization includes also creation of venture fund. It will finance development of banking applications by the third-party companies which then are going to be placed in specially created "marketplace" from where also other banks will be able to take them. In "marketplace" at the same time any software developers will be able to place the applications if they meet the set standards. In more detail about fund and "marketplace" -according to the link.
As Leushev spoke in 2015, Promsvyazbank is focused on further use of the applications created in a new format but at the same time will remain open and for use of third-party applications: the company of his own developers from about 100 people will not cover all requirements of large bank.
