CALGARY, Feb. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - Agri-Trend Data Corp and John Deere are
creating connectivity conduits between MyJohnDeere and The AGRI-DATA®
Solution. Using John Deere's Wireless Data Transfer technology, the
firms are linking data from field equipment into The AGRI-DATA®
Solution Platform to save growers time and let them analyze their data
to make decisions more efficiently.
The two firms have signed agreements enabling the sharing of data
between the two data systems which will create efficiencies for
farmers. "Our data team has been collaborating with John Deere for
over 3 years," explains Kevin Pattison, President of Agri-Trend Data
Corp, "We now are able to provide a connection between MyJohnDeere and
The AGRI-DATA® Solution. This means information such as product
application maps from planters or sprayers and yield data from the
combine can move directly from the equipment to The AGRI-DATA® Solution
using John Deere's wireless data transmission technology."
"We are very pleased that The AGRI-DATA® Solution successfully
integrated our new MyJohnDeere interface into their application to
enable our mutual customers to be more effective using their agronomic
software of choice. John Deere is committed to increasing customer
success by enabling data to be available when and where needed," said
Kevin Very, Manager, Information Solutions.
The AGRI-DATA® Solution is among the first to complete the integration
with MyJohnDeere. A fundamental component of the FarmSightTM Strategy introduced in 2012, MyJohnDeere is an open platform that
provides customers with a complete and comprehensive solution for their
data management needs. The Deere strategy of collaboration with
products like The AGRI-DATA® Solution will enable data to be available
when and where needed, as determined by the customer, all while
maintaining John Deere's core principles surrounding data management.
"We have been in the cloud since 2001," says Pattison, "and have been
working towards this integration for a long time. With this kind of
connectivity The AGRI-DATA® Solution can provide farmers a reliable
platform capable of meeting their current and future data needs which
includes full precision integration including variable rate seeding,
fertilizer, crop protection, irrigation and harvest data tracking.
This dovetails with the data we already track to help farmers grow the
crop, sell the crop and manage the money creating a fully integrated
system that is very exciting."
