Russia has an upper-center income blended economy with state proprietorship in strategic zones of the economy. Market changes in the 1990s privatized a lot of Russian industry and agriculture, with striking special exceptions to this privatization happening in the vitality and defence related segments. Russia's incomprehensible geography is an essential determinant of its financial activity, with a few sources assessing that Russia contains more than 30 percent of the world's natural assets.

In 2015, the Russian economy was ranked sixth largest across the globe by PPP and twelfth largest at market exchange rates. Between 2000 and 2012 Russia's energy exports intensified a rapid growth in the standard of living, with real disposable income rising by 160% which is accounted to more than sevenfold increase according to US monetisation. All this while, the unemployment and poverty more than halved but in 2015, the unemployment rate grew from 5.2 in 2014 to 5.6 in 2015.

The Russian economy experienced two noteworthy shocks in 2014, barely avoiding recession with moderate development of 0.6%. The main shock was the sharp decrease in oil prices amid the third and final quarter of 2014, uncovering Russia’s outrageous dependence on worldwide product cycles. After fluctuating within a tight band near USD 105 for every barrel from 2011-2013, crude oil costs ended 2014 at less than USD 60 for each barrel. The second shock was the monetary sanctions resulting from geopolitical tensions, which contrarily influenced investor appetite for Russian endeavours. Capital flights and high inflation exacerbate Russia’s monetary burdens as the economy enrolled the steepest compression since 2009 contracting 3.7% in the full year 2015. 

The monetary impact is reflected on the investment trends of the Russian organizations which witnesses a downward trend. Most of the respondents outsource few of the IT services predominantly to improve the efficiency of all these services which include customer support, service support, help desk and management.
