Recent technological advances have paved the way for developing and offering advanced services for the stakeholders in the agricultural sector. A paradigm shift is underway from proprietary and monolithic tools to Internet-based, cloud hosted, open systems that will enable more effective collaboration between stakeholders. This new paradigm includes the technological support of application developers to create specialized services that will seamlessly interoperate, thus creating a sophisticated and customizable working environment for the end users. The authors present the implementation of an open architecture that instantiates such an approach, based on a set of domain independent software tools called ''Generic enablers'' that have been developed in the context of the FI-WARE project.
