It is well known that agriculture as a sector has been behind the curve in digitisation, however with the significant leaps being made in agri-tech, this is set to change. Companies are having to compete in an increasingly complex environment and agribusinesses working with traditional, and often old-fashioned methods are realising that these are no longer the most efficient ways to operate. In an industry with such tight margins, productivity and efficiency are key to maintaining and increasing profitability.
TRANSFORMATION IN AGRICULTURE
“People in the industry—farmers, food producers—must embrace the digital transformation trends in agriculture. By using technology as a sustainable and scalable resource, we will be able to take agriculture to new heights, keeping farm to fork in our future.”
Daniel Newman, Forbes
THE VALUE OF DATA
If data is the new crop, historically the agricultural industry has not made best use of this highly valuable resource. Added to this, many agricultural businesses have grown through acquisition, resulting in often disconnected systems, manual processes and siloed data pools. Whatever your industry, connected decision making and smart data monitoring throughout the entire business cycle are critical in maintaining a competitive edge.
