Especially with the pandemic, life moved to digital and big data flow gained momentum. In this process, we have practiced life in digital. When big data is interpreted with the right analysis methods, it can enable companies to make correct strategic decisions, manage risks better and innovate. Therefore, our route has been Digital Transformation with focus on Data and Analytics. As Komtaş, we make sense of data with our stakeholders in our ecosystem and decipher life with data.”

This ecosystem, where common mind is at the forefront, has a structure that supports and nurtures each other. We believe that we have created an exemplary production and sharing model in this new age and this model will make us a global actor.”
