Low-code move of Turkish software companies Recently, Cerebrum Tech, founded by Erkul, signed a cooperation with Smartface, based in Silicon Valley. With this cooperation, it aims to make Turkey one of the leading countries in the low-code platform sector, Erkul said.
Cerebrum Tech founder and board chairman Erkul says the skills of the future are shaped around the digital economy ecosystem.
âWhile the transformation of digitization puts certain professions on the back burner, it also brings about new professions or sometimes the shine of a niche point within a certain profession occurs due to a small technological advance. In this sense, it is very important to have skills such as digital literacy and increasing digital skills in the years to come. I think a lot of young people in our country can have a life in the tech industry with low coding skills. As we embark on the mission of a tech company that inspires the youth of this country, we are very excited to take steps to collaborate with Silicon Valley-based Smartface. I want the process to contribute to our country and to the tech world, âhe added.
Osman Ãelik, the founding partner of the company Smartface, also stressed the importance of investments in the field and said: Basic coding, allows you to develop applications in very little time and twice as fast as mobile methods and conventional. Moreover, being a cloud-based platform, it is very easy to work remotely, allowing more than one person to work on the same project simultaneously, and another important feature is that it removes the need for MacBook in the development of applications for IOS. It may be possible for them to sign projects all over the world thanks to the possibility of easily developing mobile applications, opening a new door especially to young people who wish to improve in this field, and develop applications more quickly. than their competitors. We can export mobile apps to the world just like India exported software developers to all over the world years ago.

Software and coding skills, which are considered one of the important components of value-added technology exports, are among the most important skills of the 21st century. As countries invest in their own technological developments, they are also increasing their investments in skilled labor in these fields.
In this sense, countries like China, India, the United States and Japan are among the largest exporting countries in the software industry. With its large population, India has a significant market share in low-code platforms. Low-code platforms can be defined as a functional approach to the traditional coding process.
These platforms, thanks to visual models, allow the development of flexible applications in enterprise architecture by writing very little code. Thanks to low-code platforms, companies gain an advantage in areas such as flexibility, rapid application development, high efficiency, reduced costs, rapid digital transformation.

Research shows that 60% of people prefer to use mobile apps, which is increasing day by day with the arrival of more mobile devices in our lives. It has become essential for companies to offer their services through mobile applications, especially for their own employees, business partners and customers. With the demands of digital transformation brought about by the pandemic process, platforms that allow companies to develop rapid mobile applications and integrate data with all their systems are the best solutions in this mobile transformation.
