Using Cloud Technologies to Boost Your Environmental Intelligence
Presented:  Tuesday, 7 November 2017
Presenter:  Keith Steele (Sitka Technology Group)


Presentation Overview
The rapid growth in cloud computing over the last decade shows great promise; however, the uptake of these new capabilities has been slower in the natural resources management sector than in other areas of the economy. This presentation will explore the need for an environmental knowledge management strategy that exploits emerging cloud technologies to help deliver relevant and timely intelligence to decision makers. Our exploration will include live demonstrations of capabilities provided by Microsoft Azure® and Micosoft Power BI.
