Message of the President

Message of the President

If we redefine our era, we will write the technology trends of the ’software‘ world and ’digital transformation' as a concept at the top. Rapidly developing science and technology have placed this concept in the focus of our lives. Individuals, companies, institutions and even our social life are being reshaped by digital transformation and it is moving us to a different point compared to the past.
Our developing and rapidly growing country is not out of this transformation. With its young population, production ability, natural resources and cultural accumulation in many areas, it allows us to look at the future with excitement. We want to go beyond protecting the presence in our ancient lands that have been the cradle of civilizations for thousands of years, and take a step forward in the new world by rapidly realizing ‘digital transformation’ with ‘software technologies’ and R&D-supported innovation, and even with data-oriented strategic approaches and artificial intelligence to assume a Deceptively game-building identity.
The Turkish Software Industry offers us an important opportunity with its competence to provide solutions for the needs of the age. We started our task with a strong management team in order to produce the correct and sustainable strategies and to ensure that the strategies produced are implemented in an inclusive manner. The Software Industrialists' Association will strengthen the strategic position of our sector in the new period and give priority to the development of policies that enable the creation of high-tech, exporting and globally significant brands in our country. The software sector, which supports all sectors on the basis of innovation and competitiveness, will carry our country to the point it deserves in the ‘New World’ with the development of domestic technologies and the contribution it makes to the establishment of critical infrastructures. Come, let's build the future together with domestic software technologies together.
