DALLAS, Jan. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Appsian, the global leader in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) data security and compliance solutions, today announced that it has increased its international presence by opening a new office in Istanbul, Turkey. The opening of the new location will bring Appsian’s innovative data security and analytics solutions for ERP applications such as SAP, PeopleSoft, and Oracle EBS to the emerging Turkish and Middle Eastern markets. Cenk BIÇAKÇI has been appointed as the Managing Partner at the Turkish office, where he will focus on accelerating the company’s international expansion and growing customer relationships.

“The decision to expand our international presence in Turkey and the Middle East was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” said Piyush Pandey, CEO of Appsian. “We are seeing incredible demand for our ERP data security and compliance solutions in the market and we are now positioned to meet the increasing challenges faced by security executives.”

With more than 250 customers worldwide, Appsian is the recognized data security leader for organizations across all verticals, including healthcare, higher education, public sector, manufacturing, and retail.

“I’m excited to be a part of Appsian,” said Cenk BIÇAKÇI, Managing Partner at Appsian Turkey. “Our team brings more than 50 years of combined experience implementing ERP systems for Turkish customers. I look forward to delivering Appsian’s world-class data security and analytics products to our customers to help them achieve their strategic security and compliance initiatives.”
