IBA Minsk (IBA IT Park)
IBA Minsk is a major IBA Group’s software development center that employs the greater part of the company's IT and business professionals. The software development center is located in Minsk, the capital of Belarus. IBA Minsk was formed in 1993 as a joint venture between IBM and two leading Belarusian IT enterprises, namely NIIEVM (Scientific Computer Research Institute) and MPOVT (Computer Production Association). In 1999, IBM withdrew as a part owner, however, remains a strategic business partner. IBA Minsk served as a foundation and starting point for the creation of IBA Group.
The IBA Minsk's traditions go back to the days when first IBM mainframes came to life. Presently, the IBA Minsk team is composed of gray-haired gurus and young developers, which results in a unique synergy of experience and innovation. Migration of legacy systems to advanced computer platforms became a key area of focus for the company. For many of its clients, such migration served as a transformation vehicle to address new opportunities.
Aiming for international recognition, IBA Minsk modified its business processes, infrastructure, and project management and quality assurance systems. IBA was among the first in Belarus to receive an ISO 9001 certificate and among the first in the world to achieve the SEI CMMI Level 4 Maturity Rating. In 1999, 2002, 2005, 2010, and 2015 the Belarusian Government awarded IBA Minsk for achievements in quality assurance. A combination of dedication, training, talent, professionalism, and creativity became keys to the IBA Minsk success.
