Alexey Golosov graduated from the Department of Applied Mathematics at the Moscow Institute of Economics and Statistics in 1978. He received his PhD from the Institute of Systems Research of the Academy of Science in 1983.
He has developed and designed numerous information systems and databases, and has published over 30 articles in academic journals.
In 1983 Golosov was part of a team that implemented the first DBMS Oracle project in Russia and for three decades he has worked exclusively with Oracle, becoming one of the most important figures in the international Oracle community.
In 1991, Alexey Golosov and several of his former colleagues from the Institute of Systems Research established FORS Development Centre. He has served as its president since its foundation.
FORS employs over 400 people servicing in excess of 1500 clients, and has implemented approximately 500 successful IT projects with an annual turnover exceeding $140 million.
FORS is an Oracle Platinum Partner and is an internationally recognized specialist in Oracle technologies. In 2000, FORS became the first Russian company—and one of only 20 worldwide—to receive Oracle Certified Master Partner status.

- Information technologies are like seven-league boots, they are only necessary when you know where you’re going.
- In business it is impossible to arrange everything into neat little rows, and I believe more in intuition. When designing a database we are dealing with a formal object that follows certain rules. There is an axiomatic system and decisions are made using formal methods, although there is some room for creative freedom. Business, on the other hand, is completely different. It’s a world in which axioms don’t apply. That’s why it’s impossible to succeed in business by using only formal means.
