The Architecture of Informatics Systems for Farm Management – a Cloud Computing and Big Data Approach

The present paper analyses the current trends in the IT&C field, according to which IT is delivered to the user as personalized, updated and secured service packages, at reasonable costs. This new technology class is symbolically named Cloud Computing. The agrifood sector is placed on top positions when the potential of applying the technology package defining cloud computing is concerned, in the operational, management and marketing area. All kinds of economic operators along the agrifood chain (farmers, wholesalers, processors, retailers) might thus become consumers of IT services in real time and at low costs. Such services are allowing the visualization of the whole production process in real time, while the managers are provided with essential information for decision making, such as the analysis of the demand-supply ratio, or quality control in the contracts with the business partners along the agrifood chain.
