Future Vision Task Force

Future Vision Task Force Work Completed 

Provide feedback now on the proposed AgGateway Platform Business Requirements document

AgGateway created and kicked off a Future Vision Task Force (FVTF) in late February 2012. Comprised of representatives of each of the Councils, the group was charged with identifying what the agricultural industry needs to foster eBusiness today and in the future, defining key eBusiness requirements that address the identified needs, assessing AgGateway’s current capabilities against those requirements, and determining what will be needed to enable them. The expected deliverable, a general business requirements document, is now available for review and feedback.

The document describes the current state of industry tools, a proposal for a new AgGateway platform and the associated business requirements of such a platform.  It is the opinion of the Future Vision Task Force that new development is required, and that attempting to retrofit or reconfigure our existing AGIIS solution would be technically and financially impractical to meet the anticipated needs and challenges facing the industry.The document is not intended to provide all the detailed business and technical requirements for each element/functionality required, and one will note that some sections have much more detail than others. We look forward to input and feedback from the AgGateway membership to create the additional detail needed for a Request for Proposal (RFP) process.

For an overview of the proposed platform, join us for an interactive Webinar on October 30th at 2:00 p.m. EDT. Click the following link to register- October 30th Webinar.
