Igor Pastushenko, former head of IBM Ukraine, was appointed as Director of IBA Ukraine.
IBA Group has extensive experience in diverse industries and technologies. The company's client base includes global giants like IBM, Rockwell Automation, SAP, T-Systems, Goodyear, and Fujitsu Technology Solutions.

The Ukrainian market is not new to us. IBA was active there through its partners. For example, we completed a large-scale project on the optimization of business processes and implementation of a workflow system based on Chancellor, the IBA's document management product. IBA executed the project for MTS Ukraine in cooperation with InfoPlus."
In the near future, IBA Group is planning to implement projects in Ukraine using experts from IBA Gomel, the second largest development center of IBA Group. However, IBA Ukraine will be eventually expanded to employ local IT and business specialists.
