Digital Agriculture—Bytes against Hunger


Translating local and personal approaches of digital agriculture.

Undeterred technological progress both facilitates unprecedented global population growth and provides potential solutions to the resulting challenges. The need to feed an exploding population is fettered by a significant decline in agricultural employment and available arable land and water supply due to climate change, urbanization, and infrastructure development. Digital solutions, such as design thinking, digitization of seeds and crops, big data, precision agriculture, intelligent automation, IoT (connected agriculture), platforms, connected services, track-and-trace, and digital business development, are set to provide solutions to many of the challenges facing the industry today. However, for this to happen, these solutions must be appropriately optimized and deployed. They must be organized in a digital farming framework that considers the local, relevant, and personal characteristics of each agribusiness. Most importantly, however, they require an experienced integrator to facilitate the digital journey. As a global leader in consulting, technology services, and digital innovation, Capgemini is at the forefront of innovation to address the entire breadth of clients’ opportunities in the evolving world of cloud, digital, and platforms.
