CEO's Message

ICterra, in the continuation of a quarter century of international information technology and software engineering experience, as a purely domestic venture since 2013, will leave its three years behind by 2016.

I can proudly say, with the strength of our background knowledge and of course with the respect and devotion we have for our job, we continue to grow in line with the targets we originally put forward.

 

If we need to express in numbers; over the past year ICterra’s 2015 sales have provided expansion of 37%, while local sales of which composed by a significant volume of defense industry and public contracts sales, has increased by over 50% . On the other hand, past year’s R & D expenditure for its own products is almost 8% of ICterra’s turnover.

Another promising news is that ICterra was the sixth-largest software exporter in the Interpromedya’s first 500 IT company rankings of Turkey. This is a step increase from the previous year in the export branch.

All this progress gives us hope for the future. The ever-increasing needs in the field of information technology and high-end competition in the international arena, keep our focus of development strategy on the principles of continuous improvement and innovation.

Coming our top priorities at the time; while we aim to increase exports on one side, we will work to deepen achievements in the defense sector by providing effective solutions for our national primes in their needs of the software affairs, in which we already have significant progress with the help of our past engineering experience.

I would like particularly to underline at this point that, mainly Undersecretariat for Defense Industries (SSM) and national defense industry prime contractors who are governing, leading and decisive bodies in Turkey’s defense software industry, care about and give valuable support to our efforts. This is encouraging for us. In this respect, besides local projects, we will seek to realize our first export contract in defense sector for the next year.

Concerning public sector, our approach to serve our country and people will continue. In this area, in line with their trust to us, we will continue our efforts to provide effective and timely solutions for our government institutions’ needs.

In the corporate market, as I mentioned above, our objective is primarily to increase our exports and with our experience from the past, to expand our domestic activities mainly in the communication, IT Management and cyber security areas.

ICterra, towards achieving these goals, will further develop its strong engineering staff, and they will strengthen its institutional structure with its efficient management team.

I would like to wish health, happiness and success for all of our stakeholders and ICterra family for the year 2016​
