The first phase of the Turkey Agricultural Credit (Tarım Kredi) Cooperatives Digital Transformation Planning Project, carried out in cooperation with the Central Union of Agricultural Credit Cooperatives of Turkey and the TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Software Technologies Research Institute (YTE), has been completed. The successful first phase of the project, which started on March 11, 2020, ended on December 4, 2020.
Within the scope of Phase-I studies, current situation analysis was carried out in areas such as marketing and sales management, customer relationship management, retail product management, credit, card and fund product management, partner management, supplier management, financial management, facility management and human resources management, and digital transformation needs have been determined.

Due to its high complexity, the project adopts the corporate architecture approach. In the first phase of the project, which was carried out in two phases in line with the principles of Agile Enterprise Architecture, solution planning studies were completed, and in the second phase, the current situation analysis, needs definition and target appearance determination studies were started.

Digital transformation needs were determined and digital maturity and integration maturity levels of existing talents were measured. By examining reference architectures and international examples from the banking and retail/wholesale sectors, an architecture was created in which the talent and knowledge assets that will be included in the strategy, business, application, data and technology layers of solution and digital transformation projects are defined in relation.
