Skretting moves to cutting edge technology to digitise aquaculture



On October 16, Skretting has moved AquaSim - its suite of digital tools to optimise aquaculture - live to the cloud with Microsoft Azure, the company said.


Skretting has been supporting aquaculture producers all around the world for decades with a unique digital toolkit providing actionable insight for farmers seeking to optimise performance and differentiate themselves in the market. The move to the cloud service will future-proof these services and ensure they become faster, more agile and more reliable. 


Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing service for building, testing, deploying and managing applications and services. The platform is also a fast-growing environment that supports a wide range of tools and frameworks, both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.


"Being on a modern cloud platform allows us to make the most of tools and services offered by Microsoft," said Kristoffer Tveit, product department manager at Skretting.


"This opens up new and exciting roads on our digital journey. However, the key impact for us is on our improved customer experience. We are thrilled to be working with such an innovative and cutting-edge partner."


Skretting's AquaSim optimises data provided by a plethora of Internet of Things (IOT) devices. Although the acquisition and use of common technology is not necessarily an achievement, the added value lies in the ability to deliver a correct reading of data that allows Skretting to provide comprehensive advice to customers, the company said.


Skretting also expressed its commitment to leading the digitalisation of the aquaculture industry, using a combination of investment and existing tools to optimise farming production and therefore product efficiency. Global networks ensure that knowledge and best practice is shared.


"Beyond any commercial strategy and the use of cutting-edge technologies, what we deliver is the commitment and constant support that allows our customers to execute the best strategies, in a sustainable way," said Tveit.
