Every story has a beginning. Roughly three years before, I came to Turkey as the Country Manager of an international company and I was quite curious as to what opportunities laid before me. Sure enough, there were other things as well that I was curious about. For instance, how will this current period be remembered or described in 2100? What will social media consumption look like in 2050? Which occupations will lose their significance? How will anyone remember anything I do, if they ever do? Television, the most important entertainment device invented within the last 100 years – how will it evolve? What more will we be able to do with 12G internet access on mobile? How will all these influence social and political strategies? Are there going to be cyber wars? How will it be possible to protect personal information and corporate data? How many PBs of heritage will our children receive?
It is predicted that 95% of all data consumption will be in the form of video by 2025. In a world where 5 PBs of data is created per minute, assuming that robots, drones and augmented reality are the norm, many opportunities await us that are rooted in the present day. In my opinion, the name of this hybrid age where all industries undergo a change of form should be transformation. The fourth industrial revolution is proceeding more effectively and radically than all the previous ones combined – can you feel it? We can, and we have. That’s why we founded GOVINET. What do we do? What are the solutions and benefits we’re bringing into the sector? In order to answer these questions, we launched our website on 20 April 2017.
