A conference on “Digital Ecosystem - Evaluations and Experiences in the 21st Century”, was organized by the Management Information Systems Student Club. It marks the second time the conference has been held this year, previous under the name of  “Mini Management Information Systems”.

MS and PhD students presented their researches entitled: “The Impact of the Privacy Rights of Young People on Social Media Use”, “The Impact of Students on Learning Activities” and “Business Intelligence Practices”. An interactive environment was created for students to discuss and exchange ideas.

Assist. Prof. Dr. Müesser Nat, Head of the Department of Management Information Systems, was the moderator of the conference. She said they aim to organize this conference every year to increase students' awareness of 21st century technologies and their effective use in various business areas.

Assist. Prof. Dr. Tuğberk Kaya, who also spoke at the event, said digitalization is developing in our country and both the institutions and the state should provide an electronic or mobile environment. 

Kaya mentioned that in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), more than 1 million documents have been produced from the Electrical Document Management System (EBYS) which helps speed up bureaucratic procedures. EBYS is also used within CIU to increase the efficiency of the institution.

Assist. Prof. Dr. Fadiya Samson, who talked on “Digital Ecosystem and Different Perception Systems” said, “We are in an era of digital transformation. Large companies cooperating with each other pioneered the establishment of long-term common ecosystems. Consumers are more aware of the information and communication technologies, due to these digital ecosystems.”
