— Markos Giannopoulos

SANTA MONICA, CA, USA, June 5, 2022 / — Tell us a bit about yourself and your business.
My name is Markos, and I am the co-founder and CTO of Apogee Information Systems and the CTO of ENKI Inc.. Nektar, co-founder and CEO of ENKI Inc. and Icarus AI E-learning, and I started our journey developing websites for the local Greek market in 2005. We quickly grew our business and expanded to other parts of Europe, adding software solutions to our repertoire. We now work with organizations across Europe in the private and public sectors, with offices in Thessaloniki, Greece, Barcelona, ​​Spain and Luxembourg, and B2B clients located in 27 countries.

What new developments in AI and its methodologies can you tell us about?
AI is one of the most transformative technologies ever created. Many developments are happening in AI and its methodologies that are having a big impact on virtually every industry. As AI solutions become more advanced, we will see companies outsource individual tasks and even entire positions to AI. With more humans freed from mundane work, there will be more time and intelligence devoted to creative disruption, but also to specialization in working with these AI-powered solutions. Some of the innovations to watch in the future of AI development include the use of deep learning for predictive analytics and the rise of the AI-enhanced workforce, better language modeling capabilities transforming communication and media consumption, AI-powered cybersecurity, and a myriad of creative applications. in the metaverse.

You are a software expert who has been successfully developing products for over two decades. Can you give an overview of how to effectively deliver a product?
I would say the key to developing and delivering a successful product to a customer is to always listen to their needs and understand the intricacies of their field. As technical experts, we have a wide range of experience with different products, and it can be tempting to believe that we always know what’s best for the customer. But without listening to the customer, you can’t really get to the heart of the problem and, therefore, can’t create a solution that addresses it properly. Every customer has their own unique needs, and a generic solution that may work for some just isn’t good enough in my opinion. It’s my job to work with customers to develop the exact and lasting solution they need to solve the problems they have. It’s also important to build a relationship based on trust, keep them updated on the process, and check in with them post-delivery to make sure they’re happy with the solution.

In your opinion, what is the best way to motivate young people in the IT sector?
To motivate young people, it is important to understand what is important to them and to help them achieve their personal goals. Only then can we expect to see them truly thrive. For example, there are more and more millennials and Gen Zs interested in working from home. Flexibility is an important part of a good work environment for them, so giving them the option to work remotely or in a hybrid position can motivate them in their work. It is also important to recognize and reward positive behavior and provide incentives for good performance. We also need to create more learning opportunities, more avenues for growth in the industry, and compensate them fairly for the increased responsibilities in their positions.
