Public gardens are increasingly exploring technologies to provide business intelligence, manage collections, and deliver interpretive and education programs. With a vast array of hardware and software solutions available in the marketplace, how do gardens begin to evaluate relevant technologies? This session will provide a starting point to learn about new systems that may support garden missions and goals. Hear, see, discuss, and try the latest innovations including dynamic lighting displays, Altru applied to development, cyber security best practices, and drones at gardens through four rapid-fire presentations.
