«Of course, you need to learn this commercialization. This needs to be addressed and state efforts, and the efforts of the business. Business needs to invest in research and development, should be invested in research in the field of IT in modern technology. To me 10 years ago had, in fact, stick a large company to drive them to some investment planned.
