At the conference, there were discussions on different technologies and sessions on many important topics such as Future Ready Organizations, Future of Work, Digital Transformation, New Management, Cloud Computing, Digital Economy, Internet of Things, Cyber Security, Big Data and Analytics, Artificial Intelligence , Robotic Process Automation.
At the Digital Transformation Award Ceremony, organized as part of Turkey’s most comprehensive technology event, institutions and managers were awarded prizes in 13 categories for their projects achieved throughout the year. As a result of the evaluation of 108 applications from 478 institutions by IDC analysts and jury members, first, second and third place awards were received in 13 categories.

“What does the GUARD program do?”
The MUHAFIZ system is designed to use modern artificial intelligence on big data to determine in seconds which vehicles, goods and passengers should be controlled within the scope of anti-trafficking, as well as to reveal relationships and risks. which is very difficult to reveal in the old ways and to analyze in this way. The MUHAFIZ system, which allows the information in large databases to be analyzed with artificial intelligence, makes specific decisions by considering all types of risks related to illegal trade that may be carried out by land, air and sea, transfers the knowledge of the workers to the system in a sustainable and permanent way, and in addition, thanks to mathematical algorithms. It helps expose organized crime efforts by making connections that are too complex to make with the human mind.
