e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Implementation of cloud computing into the dairy enterprise in Slovakia


Information technology is part of everyday life of almost all business units not only in the dairy industry in Slovakia. Today the situation is difficult and the future of the dairy industry in our country is unclear. Therefore the managements of dairy farms extend to streamline business processes in organizations through cost reductions especially in the field of IT. Cloud computing is a new term in information technology used both in information systems, as well as in information and communication technology services through the Internet. In the modern times it represents an important developing tendency in this field. It is a model of supplying the ICT services that are accessible via the Internet. In a metaphoric sense the cloud computing and its wide range of services becomes partly mobile corporate office, when we are able without significant obstacles immediately answer to the progress in the company and manage most processes only through a computer or mobile phone with an internet connection. Nowadays it is essential for the management of the company to follow the development of modern information technology in order to avoid unnecessary financial losses caused by the obsolescence of the hardware components that are increasingly difficult to operate, especially maintenance, while their performance is decreasing and are losing value. Over time, penetrate new trends in virtualization solutions to streamline and improve the quality of work with a wide scope of IT users in small, medium, but especially in large enterprises. A lot of managers in companies solve problems relating to issues of transition from the prior IT infrastructure solutions to cloud computing, either the entire IT infrastructure, or only parts of it. The article deals with the transition from classical IT infrastructure in a dairy enterprise to a virtual platform - cloud computing. The main aim is to identify the necessary issues related to gradual transition to a virtual solution. For this reason, was developed a practical proposal of transition from an existing IT infrastructure to a virtual platform which has proved to be more cost-effective and more economical version in the enterprise using the means of information technology nowadays. When preparing the transition in the enterprise from the previous equipment of IT for smarter, financially less costly and more effective resolution we used a personal interview with personnel responsible for the management and operation of IT in a medium-sized company with 63 employees. After comparing the current state of IT equipment in the company with a new proposal were elaborated practical proposals for the progressive implementation of cloud computing solution for the enterprise. Finally, there is shown a model example how it could work with a new cloud platform in the enterprise which is engaged in processing milk. This proposal just represents only a proposal for improving the IT resources. Therefore, the management of the company could choose a modern and efficient way.
