For the fourth instalment of our She-TO Boost blog series, we’re so excited to announce Ebru: CTO Boost’s UX/UI Design Extraordinaire! Ebru’s slick design skills and astonishing innovation shines through in every project that she puts her creative touch on. Not only is she a skilled UX/UI designer, a fan of a quick midday shopping trip, and an avid traveller, but she’s also a professional at all things video game related. On a Thursday afternoon, you can catch our Turkish Delight Ebru beating everyone in the office in Mario Kart – even the Devs.
Although industry leaders recognize the value of data, they aren’t using it. This is because they don’t have the right tools or resources to do so. In fact, the majority of respondents stated that they are counting on AI to help them extract value from data. Yet, most do not have the technology or skill necessary to utilize AI. Moreover, 69 percent of respondents stated that they aren’t even trying to learn new skills, with almost half of respondents saying it’s because they’re “too old.” This is not only hindering their ability to unlock business value, but it’s also expensive. Storing data is less costly than it used to be; however, it is still expensive – especially when you aren’t leveraging it.
A year ago today, Ali came to CTO Boost as an Executive Assistant but quickly moved into her current role as Project Coordinator. Armed with beautifully crafted flashcards and her healing crystals, Ali fills our office with an unmatchable amount of organization, positivity, and passion. She’s also the first person in the office to lend a helping hand to someone in need, or to offer up a quick lesson on yoga and all things spirituality. When Ali isn’t at the office growing her knowledge of project management, you can find her belting out a song at a pub, or constructing a piece of jewellery out of recyclables.

The tech industry is vibrant and growing, yet we still don’t hear that much about everyday women working in tech. We felt it was important to share the experiences of all the wonderful women we work with and their careers in the tech industry this far.

There’s been a large focus on enterprises moving to the cloud over the past few years. Competition between key players like Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud has proven beneficial to consumers, economically, but now that everyone is on board, will the costs begin to rise? Recent studies say, yes.
The days of data privacy as an afterthought are well behind us, but the motivation to monetize consumer data remains strong. The downside is, many companies are stockpiling information without much regard to basic security features; the upside is, a reliable framework can save the day.
