Project Management in Information System (IS) or Information Technology (IT) is one of the fastest-growing industries in developed countries. Cloud-based applications are an upcoming trend compared to on-premise software development, and a large sum of money is being poured into the industry to improve productivity and production efficiency. In Malaysia, most agricultural-based activities continue to use traditional methods that can be quite time-consuming for farmers or breeders. Thus, it can be impossible to gain accurate real-time insights needed for smart farming. Conventionally, the data collected by hand must be entered manually into computers for historical record and reference, resulting in additional efforts (rework) and inefficiency. In this study, a cloud-based Bee-Smart system was developed to optimize the maintenance and monitoring of bee farms. The core of the system is a cloud-based maintenance solution and progress report for stingless bee collection data. It not only reduces farmers' paperwork, but also gives them easy access to the historical records of each hive on a farm, based on hive activity and nectar sources in the area. The prototype was then piloted in BoDen Edu Farm where the applicability of the smart systems was proven to be effective.
