While the busy business life has been passing the changes in the work flow types might not be realized.

However, many actors that enter to amend the work flow are from IT sector. The technology consumer market has been growing.

The renovations about hardware, software, services etc that creates the infrastructure of the “IT Sector” amend and facilitate the working traditions.

Even though the Information and Communication Technology production and export is not adequate, the level of utilization of these technologies is very high.

At this point, it is necessary to increase the R&D investments and supports for innovation and to implement higher institutional standards.

The reasons that the IT sector does not develop are inability to conserve the qualified labor force, lack of capital, problems while acquiring the supports and preferring the foreign software.

There are 5 technology development zones in İzmir for the entrepreneurs, researchers and academicians that would like to produce new or advanced technology.

İzmir Technology Development Zone that is located within the İzmir High Technology Institute and is founded by the collaboration of our Chamber and İzmir University of Economics in 2001.

Information Society came to the fore by shifting from industrial age to information age, so many activities targeting information society transformation at regional or global scale has been carrying on.

When it is considered from innovation perspective, information technologies sector which has very high added value will be very effective at reaching information society for our country.

Because, the products and services offered at information sector takes their place very in the daily life, technological developments depending on work organizations and customer demands causes the frequent changes of professional activities needed by markets and new occupations are developing.

With this respect, we need to use information technologies,  which came into our life by e-signature, registered e-mail, network and information security, internet domain names, e-mail addresses, cloud computing, digital archive etc., more both in practice and production manner.
