Türkiye Software Technologies Usage Report

Software Technologies Research Institute

Software Technologies Research Institute (YTE) carries out R&D activities in the field of software technologies that our country needs and provides software development, digital transformation, software quality monitoring and consultancy services. It is especially involved in strategic, sensitive and critical projects of our country. It uses its R&D studies in software technologies in the projects it develops and shares its experienced knowledge with the sector.

YTE continues to work with the vision of contributing to the development of the informatics ecosystem in order to lead research that makes our country a reference point in the field of software and to implement effective digital transformation strategies.

It is the only public institution in Türkiye to have received CMMI 5 certification.

One of the most critical core competencies essential for realizing our national technology initiative is software development capability. Being proficient in software technologies is essential for pioneering in a rapidly digitizing world shaped by software and artificial intelligence, as well as for delivering better services and maintaining competitiveness.

As TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Software Technologies Research Institute, we conduct research in many areas, ranging from the planning to the proper implementation of digital transformation, and provide support to our institutions in their critical and sensitive projects.

The Türkiye Software Technology Usage Report, which we prepared with the support of the Ministry of Industry and Technology of the Republic of Türkiye, General Directorate of National Technology, aims to guide our institutions aiming for transformation in terms of the technologies they can use and their training plans, and to identify the areas that require investment and development. We prepared our report, which was supported by a significant participation from the private sector and public institutions, with the answers to the questions covering the areas in the software life cycle.

  • CURRENTLY USED:

    Technologies currently in use

  • INTENDED TO BE USED:

    Technologies desired to be used in the future

  • SATISFIED:

    Individuals who currently use a technology and would like to continue using it in the future

  • WILLING:

    Individuals who have not previously used a technology but would like to experience it in the future

Working Group

A total of 240 managers and 725 employees in various roles in the IT sector participated in our survey. We directed 24 questions to managers and 17 questions to employees, allowing them to choose multiple options. The study, evaluated from 14 different perspectives, focused on the areas participants aim to pursue in the future.

With the advancement of technology and increasing demand for software solutions, the development in programming languages continues. The growing needs have led to efforts to enhance developer experience and increase diversity in programming languages. Newly emerging languages or new versions of existing languages generally focus on meeting modern needs faster and more reliably.

When we examine the programming languages used in our country, we see parallels with those used worldwide [1]. When evaluating the trend in programming languages and the usage trend in software frameworks, we can say that there is a tendency towards open-source technologies in our institutions.

We observe that SQL is the most commonly used language by developers. For developing enterprise applications, Java and C# are more widely used. When comparing worldwide usage, we can say that JavaScript usage is slightly more common in our country [1].

In comparison to international usage rates, we see that Python is less preferred in our country.

It can be anticipated that time is needed for new languages such as Kotlin, Go, Dart, Rust to become more widespread in our country.

We observe that .NET technologies stand out among the web frameworks used for enterprise applications. However, we understand that those using Microsoft technologies will increasingly gravitate towards the ASP.NET Core framework. The fact that ASP.NET Core offers a platform-independent and open-source framework is the main reason for this development. We can say that the Spring framework, which is standard in the Java ecosystem, is also widely used in our country.
We see that the use of Node.js for backend development is widespread, and it is the most desired framework for the future. Since the majority of those who want to use Node.js have not used it before, we can say that it will be preferred more in the future.

In the realm of database technologies, Microsoft SQL Server stands out as the most preferred database. However, it is encouraging to see that our institutions are leaning more towards open-source solutions, with PostgreSQL being the most desired database for the future. We can say that MariaDB has not gained as much attention in our country as it has globally [1]. Among NoSQL database technologies, MongoDB and Cassandra are currently the most preferred databases. Participants have expressed their intention to continue using MongoDB in the future and to utilize solutions such as Elasticsearch and Redis more extensively.

Among the development tools, we see that npm stands out as the most used and desired tool and one out of every two people uses Docker. We can say that these rates are similar to the usage rates worldwide [1]. In addition, we can interpret the fact that many people want to experience these technologies in the future as the spread of virtualisation technologies.

We observe that Unity is more widely used than Unreal Engine among game developers. In addition, when we evaluate it together with the results of Development Environments, we see that Visual Studio is the most preferred Game Development Environment.

From the feedback received, we understand that commercial solutions dominate in this area, while interest in solutions like Gitea and Gogs is very limited.

In terms of future perspective, we can say that AWS and Microsoft Azure are the most popular solutions among those who will experience them for the first time. From this perspective, we see that VMware and Microsoft HyperV will lag behind in the private sector. Additionally, we can express that Turkcell Cloud, a domestic cloud provider, and Safir Cloud, developed by TÜBİTAK BİLGEM, will be more preferred in the future.

Among logging and monitoring tools, we see that Grafana and Elastic Stack are widely used. Both systems offer a flexible and customizable structure to provide solutions tailored to different needs. It can be said that Grafana will continue to be the most heavily used monitoring tool in the future among these tools. Additionally, we can say that Elastic Stack is more popular among those who will use it for the first time and is desired to be experienced more.

We observe that the usage of tools such as Pinpoint and Sentry, used as application performance monitoring tools, remains low. Similarly, Jaeger, which offers an open-source solution for distributed tracing, has not achieved widespread usage.

In our research, we asked participants in managerial roles about how many developers they currently employ in their organizations and how many developers they will need in the future. When we examine the top five developer roles in the graph, we can see the need for Fullstack (Frontend and Backend), Backend, Frontend, Software Testing Specialist, and generally Software Development Specialist roles. When we look at the roles needed in the future, we see that the Fullstack Developer is in the first place. Additionally, the total number of employees in the top five roles is higher than the total of other roles. Therefore, we can say that there will be an increasing trend towards these roles. We can also say that there is a shortage of employment in 10 out of 26 roles. In this context, specializing in the specified roles for those who will enter employment or want to direct their careers towards software technologies can provide benefits both in meeting the employment needs in the relevant roles and in the job search efforts of individuals.
