This IDC Market Note provides an overview of the latest key ICT developments in Turkey and assesses the potential impact they could have on the market. The topics covered in this Market Note include blockchain, Smart City initiatives, a new entrant to the Turkish electronic-retail market, and an update of a university and vendor cooperation program to develop ICT market skills.
"Turkey offers great potential for etail market players, given its large youth population and increasing trend for online shopping. However, a lack of skills and technical competence among the workforce remains a major ICT market inhibitor and should be addressed by all relevant stakeholders, including vendors, universities, channel players, and public institutions." — Research Manager Aslı Koçkal, IDC Turkey.
