Vladimir K. Dudchenko
Vladimir founded SoftBCom in 2003 and remains a partner and the company’s permanent CEO. He boasts 40 years working on IT projects, 20 of which were spent in the Russian and Soviet aerospace industry (Energia, a rocket and space corporation, and Geofizika-Cosmos). He has developed onboard programs and support systems, served at the Mission Control Centre and visited Baikonur Cosmodrome. At the end of the 1980s he managed projects creating software for the navigation systems used on Buran, the Russian equivalent of the Space Shuttle. That experience explains why SoftBCom has borrowed a good bit of project management and system testing methodology from the aerospace industry as well as its penchant for taking a close look at the third-party solutions it uses. The company’s top specialists regularly publish the results of those tests and studies.
Since 1991 until the founding of SoftBCom, Vladimir handled a number of executive roles in private IT companies (for example, he was the business director at Sybase Russia for several years).
Vladimir graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (PhysTech) with a degree in spacecraft operation. In Russia, PhysTech provides the best education in rocket science in every sense of the word.
