John Deere Opens Data Platform to Other Software Suppliers
The “More Tools” page housed within John Deere’s Operations Center includes information and links to solutions from other companies using John Deere’s open data platform. This allows farmers to access the tools they need from a variety of ag software providers yet still keep their data in a single location.
“The option to pick and choose the solutions that make sense for an operation with practically no extra effort needed to transfer data between them is key for simplicity and usability,” says Kevin Krieg, software segment manager, John Deere Intelligent Solutions Group. “This setup keeps the farmers in control of their data when they collaborate with trusted partners to put that data to work enhancing their performance and profitability.”
John Deere also offers JDLink Connect, which seamlessly connects a machine to the Operations Center, taking the burden of data collection and transmission off the farmer. In addition to agronomic data, it collects machine data to give a full picture of what is happening on the farm. JDLink also connects those machines directly to the dealer.
