Prova Teknoloji: Leading Data-Driven Innovation

Enes Kocak, Founder & General Manager
For Enes Kocak, the Founder and General Manager at Prova Teknoloji, life is a long trail of learning. His journey started as an entrepreneur in trade at a young age. Kocak went on to work as the Head of the Channel Development and Corporate Sales business units for a large PC manufacturer in Turkey, his team successfully managed 3000+ resellers, distributors, points of sale, and servicing channels at this time. “I worked for 10 years with the computer manufacturer and accumulated extensive knowledge of corporate life, trade, and marketing. I also got the opportunity to explain “entrepreneurship” to hundreds of young people invited from each country in the UN World Youth Congress in 2010,” Kocak mentions.

During his journey, Kocak witnessed the shift of the business IT environment toward the cloud. That’s when he had an intuition that the future lies in the simplification of cloud data storage and the evolution of data management systems. With time, his vision got stronger, driving him to lay the foundation stone for Prova Teknoloji.

Today, as a corporate technology provider, system integrator, and NetApp partner, the company develops vertical projects for government, telcos, SMBs, and enterprises. Prova Teknoloji provides on-site servicing to clients with its Directorate General in Istanbul, Corporate Solutions, and Demo Centers in Ankara and servicing facilities in 81 provinces of Turkey. “We are included in the B2B catalog with 8 different NetApp models. More importantly, we are located in Turkey. This strategic location enables us to have footprints across the Asian and the European market,” says Kocak.

Pondering over the thought of how the industry has changed over time, he mentions that most of the decision-makers in the IT arena today believe that the hybrid cloud approach is becoming more relevant in the context of data. It enables businesses to escalate the application development lifecycle and rightly handle the growing need for edge computing while optimizing internet devices and web applications. To this end, NetApps’ data fabric architecture—set of data services— promises to provide consistent capabilities across a choice of endpoints spanning on-premises and multiple cloud environments. In fact, Gartner reports that data fabric is one of the top 10 technology developments that can positively impact every business in the next three to five years.


We are providing consultancy services to help clients rightly align with it and be smarter by using the NetApp data-fabric platform and hybrid-cloud solutions


“However, without an efficient IT team, it becomes a troublesome affair for businesses to rightly utilize data fabric in their favor. We help businesses understand data fabric better and optimize their business operation. We are not looking at the past with our clients or what is being done today— we are enabling clients to build a sound IT infrastructure for the future, using data fabric,” says Kocak. Additionally, for NetApp E-Series—that provides performance-efficient, high-density block storage for application-driven workloads—Prova Teknoloji offers 3D lidar data. Several municipalities achieved good results using 3D lidar data. "Also we're focusing on Hyper Converged Systems, High Performance Computing, and AI solutions for the health, education, and the defense industry," Kocak mentions. This holistic offering is backed by the efficient and experienced team that Prova Teknoloji holds. Every team member has the capability to rapidly make decisions and take the right action when a need arises.

Such a comprehensive offering forged with a dedicated team always drives Prova Teknoloji to explore new opportunities for growth and continuously expand its reach— with projects in almost 20 countries. Also, keeping the growing trend of container technologies in mind, the company is reaching out to start-ups to support them.

“By 2025, almost 163 zetta bytes of data will be generated annually. So, every company needs to look at data with a new perspective. We are providing consultancy services to help clients rightly align with it and be smarter by using the NetApp data-fabric platform and hybrid-cloud solutions,” concludes Kocak.
