Forestry value chain plays a significant role in the global economy and will have an important role in the fight against climate change and ensuring a high level of biodiversity. Yet over the last 100 years, decision-making in forestry has been largely based on rough estimates and averages. Silvere changes the game by bringing unforeseen practices to the field of forestry. By utilizing the latest technologies including robotics, 3D imaging, big data and advanced analytics, Silvere has redefined forest management and made it possible to analyze and plan the forest at the accuracy of an individual tree as well as automate every aspect of managing the forests.

What does Silvere do?

Their aim is to build a scalable microservices solution and to use infrastructure-as-code principles for provisioning them to the cloud. Challenges include for example building an efficient storage solution, implementing real-time analytics, data mining, machine learning, statistical and semantic knowledge analysis, and so forth. To solve these tasks Silvere’s team uses a spectrum of modern development techniques and technologies.
