Information Systems

We have an expert team that deliver business analysis, systems design & development, Cloud & in-house infrastructure setup, and on-going support, including managed services. Our particular strengths are in .Net technology, coupled with GIS & location technologies, and very strong data management & analysis experience across industries.

We have an in-house senior development team with an emphasis on agile development and code management best practices. Systems benefit from on-going structured support, and planned updates and releases. We bring strong industry understandings to every project we commit to, contributing to each success story delivered. More..

Location Technologies

We seamlessly integrate spatial information systems or GIS into our systems – be they desktop GIS for analysis, mobile apps for data capture, or web systems for business workflows. We adopt the best-fit technology – be it Esri ArcGIS, open source or other choices.

The location tag in data is exceptionally powerful, allowing new insights and great ways of sharing information, especially when coupled with dashboards, reports, and statistical methods.

Field Computing

Rugged field computers come in phone to tablet sizes and are water, rain, dust, and drop ready. Using Android or Windows systems, they can run field-friendly software or data capture or information access. GPS features are heavily used by us and delivers high accuracy data capture where appropriate.  We now focus on field computers provided by HandHeld Europe, and Trimble Mobile Computing Solutions, along with our own custom mobile apps and field software form Esri and others.

Compass15: Focus on..Teagasc Nutrient Planning System

Chemical SetupPat Murphy of Teagasc will present at Compass15 on September 10th in Dublin, Ireland

Teagasc, the agriculture and food development authority for Ireland, is currently preparing for the go-live (September 2015) of Nutrient Management Planning software tools to serve the nutrient management planning needs of Irish farmers. Using web-based tools, digital mapping, and a nutrient management planning wizard the technology team has developed tools which allow farmers to target increasingly limited nutrients to where they are needed on their farms.

Emphasis has been placed on ease of use as the system will be used by up to five hundred farm advisors, who will use the system to produce Nutrient Management Plans for farmers.  Up to 50,000 plans per year will be created using the solution.

land setupIn order to help farmers to make full use of their plan the system is presented in a user friendly manner and  contains meaningful information that will assist with nutrient use at farm level.  This will have advantages for cost effective farming while also taking good environmental practice into account.  The new tools provide a centralised web-based software system to deal with fertilizer planning (and subsequently derogation fertilizer plans) and to ensure quality control on the information being delivered to farmer clients. The system is also capable of enhancement over time to reflect changing needs and regulations and will be capable of handling the expected increased demand for Plans over coming years.

The system used best practice IT tools and development approaches using Microsoft .Net plus GIS technologies, and integrates with selected other Teagasc and Department of Agriculture systems for effective management of soil samples, ownership boundaries, land movement systems, and other data required for the nutrient management planning process.
