The world is becoming increasingly digital -- data is everywhere and new technologies keep disrupting markets. Within CGIAR there already are many initiatives that embrace those new opportunities.

A team from Accenture Development Partnerships and the leader of the CGIAR Big Data Platform will visit WorldFish HQ in Penang to carry out a seminar interview, digital infrastructure mapping, and a workshop during the period of 18th to 20th February 2019.

The three-day program conducted is to get insight into the digital transformation ambitions, investment agenda, digital strategy efforts to date, WorldFish vision, the effectiveness of the Big Data Platform technology investments and the way that it is being implemented. Two main outcomes are expected from the process:

  1. WorldFish will be presented with recommendations and inputs into a digital transformation strategy
  2. Big Data Platform will have a more complete overview of what is going on within the CGIAR.
