This IDC Market Note describes recent ICT market developments in Turkey and presents IDC's analyses of those developments. The technologies and topics covered in this Market Note are an announcement from Google concerning the suspension of Google Mobile Services on new smartphone models, Biznet and Istanbul University's new Internet of Things Ecosystem Security Testing and Evaluation Center, and a joint Ministry of Education Ministry and Google digital transformation program to train 1 million teachers.
"In Turkey, one of the most fundamental barriers to innovation and the use of technology is the skills gap, but initiatives involving academic institutions, government bodies, and industry players to bridge this gap are already underway. For example, Biznet and Istanbul University have opened a center that will be instrumental in providing training in the areas IoT and OT cybersecurity. In another development, Google and the Ministry of Education aims to train 1 million teachers to equip children and young people with digital skills." — Research Manager Ramazan Yavuz, IDC Turkey
