Agriculture technology: Matt Waits at TEDxOStateU
Matt Waits, ’99 agricultural economics, is CEO of SST Software, an industry leader in agricultural information management. He led Stillwater-based SST Software to develop an enterprise-level data-management platform that encompasses essential components for meeting site-specific farm management. That platform, known as agX, is now the underlying infrastructure that manages data and provides information services on more than 80 million acres across 23 countries.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
