The partnership’s combined expertise also allows organisations to tap into long-standing expertise in designing and implementing digital transformation strategies.

Speaking on the new partnership, Esri Indonesia Country Manager, Christanto Yanuar said, “Industry 4.0 is a new stage of industrial revolution in which several emerging or disruptive technologies — including the Internet of things (IoT), AI and Big Data — are converging to provide digital solutions.

“In this digital era, effective data utilisation is highly dependent on the ability to quickly manage, analyse, and make sense of large volumes of information,” he said.

“For example, GIS technology is supporting key business operations by improving plantation assets and infrastructure monitoring, while optimising development costs.

Additionally, location intelligence, derived from GIS, can also provide real-time reports and alerts on potential peatland fire thereby helping first responders and other relevant agencies mitigate, prepare, and respond to emergency situations.”

“The agriculture and plantation industry’s continual drive toward efficiency and productivity has opened the door for smarter precision farming practices and solutions.

Understand how plantations are improving business outcomes and reducing waste using GIS technology.

This alliance with Ata Marie marks a step towards ground-breaking innovation. We are excited to see how this partnership can unlock unique possibilities in the agriculture and plantation industry.”
