This IDC Market Note assesses the broad implications of recent ICT-related developments in Turkey.
"The rise in local DX investments has strengthened the need for relevant skills among the Turkish workforce. Even though disruptive technologies such as blockchain are not yet widely adopted in Turkey, numerous industries are actively striving to understand their full potential and long-term benefits. However, unfavorable macroeconomic and political changes are broadly affecting the local technology markets. The growth of the consumer-driven mobile phone market in Turkey, for example, is being inhibited by the high prices associated with particular brands."— Senior Research Analyst Ayse Kaptanoglu, IDC Turkey.
