E.S City Planning and Consulting Ltd. Co. starts project planning and time management

October 1, 2014 1 comment

I have been dealing with projects for many years, and trying to manage my time and my employees time as well. Time is the keyword for an effective work for businesses. Managing it is not an easy task.

With Timetac; me and my team started to manage time which started two years ago. TimeTac is an effective way to manage employee time tracking, project and task based time tracking.

We shaked hands with TimeTac GmbH for about 2 months ago and started to work hard. First we started with translating the interface to  Turkish then our first client E.S. City Planning and Consulting Ltd. Co. requested this project for an effective time management within company. We had three hours session practice with them and they were so successful on understanding how to manage projects with Timetac. Thanks to this great team!

Managing IT, How?

You guys in IT already know break fix models and managed services models. As GM Technologies, i was always trying to lead managed it services thru my customers. But when trying to do this we were always trying to follow the best practices in IT service models…

Ooopss! Best practice what you mean?

ITIL – Information Technology Infrastructure Library

ITIL is the most widely adopted approach for IT Service Management in the World. Provides a practical, no-nonsense framework for identifying, planning, delivering and supporting IT services to the business.

Adopting ITIL can offer users a huge range of benefits that include:

  • Improved IT Services
  • Reduced costs
  • Improved customer satisfaction through a more Professional approach to service delivery
  • Improved productivity
  • Improved use of skills and experience
  • Improved delivery of third party services

So what is the relation with this post?

I have attended 3 day ITIL Foundation Course at the dates 24-25-26 April at İstanbul / Küçükyalı Centrum Professional Meeting Rooms. Our instructor was Gülden Kıyıcı ITIL Expert, Certified ISO 20000 Consultant. This course was the most instructive course that i have attended within the last years. I have really amazed with the way that how ITIL manages IT.

The end?

Yes i have entered ITIL Foundation V3 Exam and successully passed. But this is just the beginning, prior back to Bodrum, GM Technologies i started creating IT service catalogs, i want to fully implement ITIL to my company, i know this takes but does not seems impossible…!

BİMY 20, Informatics is Cash

By the help of the main sponsor TBD – Informatics Association of Turkey, this year BİMY Seminar is organized at Antalya, Gloria Golf Resort. At 4-7 April, also the great weather of Antalya welcomed us.

This year, twentieth of BİMY was organized. The main thema was “Informatics is Cash”. Great presenters and speakers supported the seminar like Serdar Salepçioğlu (NETSAFE CEO), Onur Takmak (RHEA President and Co-Founder), Levent Kızıltan (Eczacıbaşı IT Systems Group President), Zeynep Keskin (SAP Turkey General Manager), Gamze Aydın (Teradata CEO) and many more…

Mr. Binali Yıldırım, Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications opened the seminar with video conferencing from İstanbul Ministry Office. After opening Turhan Menteş continued as TBD Minister.

The main concept of this seminar was to maintain relationship of IT Executives in C positions, while trying to cover new ideas in IT and Internet concepts, with big discussions. The ideal concepts spinned around BIG DATA and how will Internet affect cash usage.

I have fully enjoyed a half holiday half seminar days while talking with C class representatives from Netsafe, Netaş, Oracle and SAP.

I wish to write this blog many weeks ago but as you got we are very very busy in these days…
