Turkcell Investor Relations Recognized as the “Best IR in Turkey” at IR Magazine Awards – Europe 2014

Turkcell (NYSE:TKC) (BIST:TCELL), Turkey’s leading telecommunications and technology company, was recognized for its IR practice at the 24th annual “IR Magazine Awards” ceremony. Turkcell’s Investor Relations Department received ‘The Best IR in Turkey’ award following a comprehensive, independent evaluation process during which 500 investors, analysts and opinion leaders worldwide were interviewed.

This is the second time in two years that Turkcell has been deemed worthy of this award. Turkcell’s IR department was selected as the “Best IR in Turkey” in 2013 prior to this year. The award stands apart from its peers with its independent nomination process, in which nominations come from a database of industry professionals and not from companies’ own applications. The winners are determined with the independent votes of industry professionals.

Turkcell’s Investor Relations Director Nihat Narin underlined Turkey’s rising standards in corporate governance and emphasized Turkcell’s leading role in implementing best IR practices. “With its economic potential and growth rate, Turkey continues to stand out among developing countries and maintains its position as the center of attention of the international investor community. Following new regulations on the capital markets, companies listed in Borsa Istanbul Stock Exchange improved their corporate governance standards, and now offer more secure and transparent solutions to investment community,” Narin remarked, “as Turkcell Investor Relations, we respond to the growing interest of national and international investors with best IR practices that have become a part of our company culture due to our dual listing at the NYSE and Borsa Istanbul. We believe that higher IR standards encourage investors to invest in Turkey, which, in turn, creates added value for Turkish economy. This award reaffirms our success in representing our country while upholding the highest transparency and accountability standards. We are very proud of being recognized for this accomplishment two years in a row.”

IR Magazine (Investors Relations Magazine) was created under the Economist Group, and is run by the Cross Border Limited media company. The company, which owns numerous prestigious magazines, websites and research teams in the finance field, is also the organizer of award ceremonies, conferences and activities, especially in the financial capitals of the world such as New York, London and Hong Kong.

53 companies from 21 countries competed for this year’s awards. In addition to Turkcell, companies including BASF, Continental, Unilever, Roche, and Allianz were also recognized for their accomplishments.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.
