Five CGIAR OCS staff participated in the Agresso Customer Conference 2014 in Edinburgh, UK held on 8th and 9th October 2014.

CONNECT, EMPOWER, INSPIRE: UNIT4 2014 Customer Conference

The main theme of the plenary presentations was that UNIT4 will be concentrating on improved Analytics and the User Interface in upcoming releases of the product. They want the experience of using Agresso to be much closer to the Apps and interfaces used outside of the office.

Everything will be available through a browser including mobile apps to ensure they can be used on any device. Targeted analytics will be used to help users do their work (Uber and Facebook were used as examples; making use of big data analytics in a similar way that Facebook and Google predict what adverts you’ll be interested in from your recent activity).

Cloud based Agresso “capabilities” will use standard API and web services to interface with other vertical or best-in-class systems that Centres may be using. However, not much was said about future improvements to core modules.
