WEBINAR: Reasons and Benefits of Standards, Standards Influencers; Competitive Advantage.
The NZ Ag Data “Insights & applications” workshop is now on, in a newly designed four-part webinar series. Bring your sandwiches and Nespresso to your study, to mix and mingle – virtually of course – with colleagues from the NZ ag sector, for informative, quality insights on how to advance your ag tech business through the application of best-practice global interoperability standards.
This webinar series is designed to enable you to acquire factual insights and industry information on which you can make informed management, technology and interoperability decisions, with an emphasis on real-world application.
That’s because data has always been at the heart of business decision-making in any industry, especially so in the ag sector. For NZ agriculture-related companies to remain competitive in an increasingly globally-connected world, their data must be more complete, timely, accurate, and comprehensible. Standards help make this possible.
A challenge for implementers is knowing what standards are available and the purpose of each. They need to understand how each standard relates to other standards, and how various technologies and tools inter-relate. This four-part webinar series will address these points, prioritising breadth over depth, and with references to enable participants to dig deeper.
These webinars are to be convened by Kenneth Irons, on the boards of PAANZ and AgriTechNZ, and CEO of Precision Farming Ltd, and are to be lead by Jim Wilson, Global CEO and President of OAGi and CTO of AgGateway.
Attendance is free as the event is sponsored by PAANZ.
RSVP by noon Thursday 9 April (the day before Good Friday) but since this is a webinar (and you’re bringing your own lunch to your home office), you’re welcome to sign up any time, and also to attend all or some of the sessions. There will be handouts and reference materials forwarded to registered participants so registration is encouraged, as are requests, questions, suggestions and referrals to colleagues.
The session agendas are dynamic, and designed to be refined in response to participants’ needs and interests.
Participation from colleagues in Australia is welcome. We Kiwis promise not to mention the rugby.
