Nikolay Kurayev


The Inventor of Unique Solutions

In 1997, Nikolay Kurayev joined ScienceSoft as a department manager with a background in physics and 3D modeling. At the time, ScienceSoft was a software product company developing computer-aided innovation software that needed Nikolay’s scientific background to manage a team of specialists working in the area of 3D modeling of physical effects. After two years of efficient department management, Nikolay was promoted to become ScienceSoft’s new Chief Executive Officer and make strategic decisions about the company’s future.

" ScienceSoft experts have been able to deepen their industry-specific knowledge in manufacturing, retail, professional services, healthcare, banking and finance. "

Since then, Nikolay has lead ScienceSoft through two major company transformations. In the early 2000s, Nikolay found a new promising path for ScienceSoft. The company stopped being a software product company and started to head towards the market of software development services. Due to Nikolay’s efforts, ScienceSoft managed to find its place in the newly chosen market and broaden its expertise. In 2015, Nikolay saw a new opportunity for ScienceSoft to evolve. He decided to start an IT consulting practice at ScienceSoft in addition to the previously rendered technical software development services. This decision laid the foundation for ScienceSoft’s current vision behind software development outsourcing services that allow customers to enjoy fast software evolution with frequent releases and solid application stability.

Under Nikolay’s management, ScienceSoft gained significant expertise in new innovative domains, such as artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), data science, machine learning, big data and augmented reality (AR). ScienceSoft experts have been able to deepen their industry-specific knowledge in manufacturing, retail, professional services, healthcare, banking and finance. This way, ScienceSoft’s specialists use both their profound technical expertise and hands-on industry-specific experience to deliver solutions that yield business value to customers. For example, ScienceSoft delivered an award-winning mobile banking application recognized as the best mobile banking app for iOS and Android.

With the background rooted in science, ScienceSoft build on their legacy knowledge and grow it in the areas of CRM, Data Analysis, Collaboration & Knowledge Management and Information Security. As part of this journey, we partnered with Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, Salesforce, Magento, ServiceNow, Episerver and more tech leaders to ensure that their clients will benefit from steady reliability and originality across solutions. ScienceSoft is an active supporter and promoter of sustainability improvements and is officially involved in the UN Global Impact Initiative.

At ScienceSoft, they believe in a personal approach to every customer and project. Bringing in transparency, automation and dynamic environment. In an instance, a Canadian company that delivers end-to-end mobile innovations in the connected transportation industry took ScienceSoft’s assistance. The Customer decided to bring a new smart product to the market of connected cars. The solution was supposed to be an on-board diagnostic system that sends diagnostics data, mileage, geolocation and other information to vehicle owners. ScienceSoft was chosen as an IoT development partner for the backend part to help the Customer meet the market expectations. The Customer and ScienceSoft developed a smart solution that can be easily integrated into a number of vehicles. As a result of the successful collaboration between the Customer’s and ScienceSoft teams an easy-to-install smart system has been built. The system helps car owners to control their vehicles from anywhere in the world via a smartphone, tablet or computer. The solution has got an Edison Award, which is one of the highest accolades the company can receive in the sphere of innovation and business success.

Nikolay enjoys sharing his rich managerial experience and ideas on IT consulting via posts in ScienceSoft’s blog. For example, he has explained why Agile methodologies are a match for software development outsourcing projects and shared how to avoid common risks of outsourcing software development. He aims at taking the company to new heights and offer customers unique solutions curbing their challenges.
