Untransformable Data in Digital Transformation
On June 8th and 9th, we organized an online panel titled "Untransformable Data in Digital Transformation" with great excitement, featuring 8 distinguished speakers from academia and industry. If you didn't have the opportunity to watch it, don't worry! In this article, we want to share the key points of our event with you and help you decide what to watch during your next lunch break.
Moderated by Kemal Can Kara, the R&D Consultant at Kariyer.net, the first day of this online panel featured Abdülkerim Mızrak (WiseUp Software&Consultancy - Founder & Managing Partner), Hüseyin Yurtseven (Amazon - Sr. Software Development Manager, Amazon Music Machine Learning), Sultan Turhan (Galatasaray University - Assistant Professor in Computer Engineering Department), and Özcan Çavuş (Doğuş Technology - Executive Vice President – CDO / Data Solutions and Privacy Group). On the second day, we had Anıl Gül (Kariyer.net - Deputy General Manager of Technology and Innovation), Dr. Ömer Farukhan Güneş (Oxford University Junior Research Fellow in Computer Science), Şadi Evren Şeker (Istanbul University - Dean of the Faculty of Computer and Informatics Technology // Founder of OptiWisdom), and Seda Tekin (Sade Yazılım – Director).
In this impressive online panel, we focused on unconventional and often overlooked topics. Drawing from the knowledge and experience of these seasoned individuals, we delved deep into the significance of cultural and technical transformation. We discussed the mistakes made by companies developing data-driven products, the challenges faced by rapidly growing teams, and the struggles of competent engineers trapped in rigid organizational structures. We thoroughly explored ways to overcome these challenges, the importance of implementing the right cultural change, and what individuals and teams can do in this transformation process.
Throughout the event, we focused on the Chief Data Officer (CDO) role, which serves as a catalyst for transformation within companies. We discussed the responsibilities, boundaries, and roles of this exciting position, including the tasks performed and the teams involved. Moreover, we hinted at the future significance of similar roles not only within companies but also externally.
In addition, we addressed various topics such as data privacy and security, large language models (LLMs), the role of academia in this field, and the importance of consultancy services. Finally, each speaker shared their views on how they approach learning and how they personally maintain intellectual growth in the face of this information bombardment.

We hope to meet with you again soon!
