The Ministry of Industry and Trade asks Russian software developers to speed up the adaptation of their products to Russian processors "Elbrus" and "Baikal". Deputy Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Oleg Bocharov sent a corresponding letter with a request to Russian software developers at the end of July.

The letter says that for the basic set of software, each product class already either has compatible solutions or is being developed. However, there are a number of programs that are not yet adapted to Russian processors, including IFCPlugin, 1C, Consultant+, Compass 3D, P7-Office, Arenadata.

The authorities expect that by 2023 at least 70% of the equipment purchased by the state will be on Russian processors, adding that the work on adapting Russian software for Russian processors needs to be accelerated.

So far, state-owned companies are not required to use computers with Russian processors, but from 2022 they will have to purchase PCs and servers equipped with domestic processors. Alexey Smirnov, CEO of Basalt-SPO, said that the adaptation may take several years, and also questioned the economic feasibility.

Software designed to work under Intel will not be able to transmit the correct commands to the processor " Elbrus "or"Baikal". To adapt, you need to rebuild the programs, and this work in some cases can take up to several years. If Baikal really releases 600 thousand processors in 2025, how many of them will be in computers that will work with ERP from 1C? Most likely, no more than 10 thousand, so it will be simply unprofitable to rebuild the software and maintain technical support. - Alexey Smirnov.

Наши разработчики говорят о жёстком противодействии со стороны ряда компаний под эгидой торгово-промышленной палаты принятию закона о российских процессорах в системах хранения данных. Это противодействие может привести к гибели российской процессорной микроэлектроники.

Но с другой стороны пора переходить на принципиально новые архитектуры, а не использовать наследие из прошлого века. Потому что мир изменился.
