Murat Ertem: We must be ready for the future together

Softtech General Manager M. Murat Ertem made important remarks about the 2020 report. “As Turkey’s leading technology company, we reconsider the trends of the future, shaped in the axis of technology, innovation and digital transformation. While the new age is approaching at a dizzying speed, we need to be ready for this era together, catch the trends and even lead the trends. For this reason, we evaluate the effects of technology trends on the new age, especially in the fields of banking, finance and financial technologies. In doing so, we take into account issues such as legal constraints, business models and the direction of money, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of technologies. I believe that our report will be a useful resource not only for industry professionals but also for anyone interested in technology.”
