A Study of the Strategy and Operation of Japanese Agriculture Cloud Computing


Amid declining Japanese agriculture solutions, agriculture cloud attracts much attention and expectations. However, the strategy and the operation of the agriculture cloud have not been investigated adequately. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine the strategy and the operation in the agriculture cloud. In this study, we performed a case study regarding agriculture cloud. Based on our consideration, the strategy and the operation of the agriculture cloud are a reinforcement of conventional competitive advantages.
