Last week in SDU Asset Akhmetov – a founder of “Korkem Telecom” LLP Company/Developer of “Sergek” Public and Road Safety System – provided a guest lecture to students of IT Department. At the moment, it is the only IT-company that provides a system “on a turn-key basis”, from wires to ready solutions. “Sergek” System has already shown its successful work. Its implementation in the major megacities of Kazakhstan lead to reduction of deaths and injuries caused by road accidents, lowered the number of car accidents, and significantly increased discipline among drivers. Although, not so many people are aware of the fact, that “Sergek” System is a 100% domestic product and its founder is an IT graduate from SDU.
-It is vital to preserve IT sovereignty. This system was developed in Kazakhstan and it must be preserved this way. It is highly important to have our own specialists, so that we do not depend on foreigners. The whole ecosystem is created by our company, we are not outsourcing anything at all. IT sphere has stepped into a breaking point, we are one of the first who designed a system of such type and we have intentions to design other innovations, adaptive to our country, – says Asset Akhmetov during his meeting with students.
Also, Asset Akhmetov thought of SDU as his Alma mater and held a guest lecture for future SDU graduates with great pleasure. Speaker told students about his experience, career achievements and failures in his business. He also gave useful advice and directions for career development. His main message to future specialists was to instill a sense of patriotism. During his speech to the youth, Asset Akhmetov admitted his desire to view citizens of Kazakhstan as highly developed persons and expressed his willingness to put all his efforts to fulfill that dream. Indeed, SDU is proud of its graduates and wishes them success in their professional activities.
