We are delighted to announce that our work in aquaculture has earned us finalist status in the 2017 Microsoft Global Partner Awards. The Yield was selected from a global pool of partners who have shown excellence and innovation using Microsoft technology this year.
Our Founder and Managing Director Ros Harvey said of the achievement:
“We are thrilled to be chosen from such a strong field of solutions. It’s a fantastic endorsement of not just our work but the commitment of our customers, who have been extremely proactive in helping us shape the technology to ensure it solves real problems for them. We are extremely grateful for the deep collaboration and engagement we have had from growers and the industry.”
Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from over 2,800 entries from 115 countries. The Yield was recognised for delivering excellence in the Internet of Things (IoT) category.
IoT has been forecast to deliver up to $11 trillion to the global economy by 2025 and up to $120 billion annually to the Australian economy in the same time frame. The view of The Yield investor KPMG is that, as IoT connects the physical world to the digital world, giving better visibility into what is happening in our physical environment, it can help us make better, faster decisions, automate processes and enable the prediction of future events.
Three hundred growers across NSW and Tasmania now rely on our IoT-based technology and food safety regulator portal. Sensing+ Aqua combines sensors, data analytics, predictions and apps to give growers an unforeseen level of visibility over climate conditions in their area, which is critical for their ability to make decisions that impact yield.
Sensing+ Agriculture is being launched to intensive irrigated crops in October 2017. Learn more here.
