MOSCOW , July 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ —
IBS IT Services (“IBS”), a subsidiary of IBS Group, announces
completion of two major projects that include deployment of an
integrated budgeting system across subsidiary offices of Polyus
Gold, and development of a system of websites for Russia's
statistical agency, Rosstat.
In June 2011 , IBS completed the first stage of an integrated
budgeting system for Polyus Gold, Russia's leading gold producer
and one of the world's largest gold mining companies, with market
capitalization of about US$12 billion and 2010 revenues of US$1.75
Polyus Gold's cross-border production management required the
development of an integrated budgeting system, and IBS was engaged
to implement a solution based on IBM Cognus TM1 after competitive
bidding process. As part of the project, IBS built a standard
budgeting model for a mining enterprise and a model to consolidate
budgetary data at the corporate headquarters level.
Also in June 2011 , IBS developed a system of websites for
Rosstat, a federal executive agency responsible for
collecting, processing, and publishing official statistics on
social, economic, demographic, environmental, and other
developments in Russia.
In order to expand the capabilities of Rosstat's website, IBS
upgraded the hardware and software platforms including a migration
to IBM WebSphere Portal Server 6.1. The existing software and
contents were ported to new more powerful hardware. This provided
for improved website processing and search times, a launch of
value-added services and applications, and an overall enhancement
of user interface.
