The Operations Center of MyJohnDeere.com has become increasingly beneficial to customers with the growth in third party application developers who have integrated their software via APIs. This allows for more seamless connectivity of data into the Operations Center that can be shared out to other platforms and software. Many of these companies have attended the annual John Deere Developers Conference which I plan to attend again this year.
During the 2016 InfoAg Conference I talked with Kevin Krieg, Partner Integrations – Software Segment Manager, John Deere. Kevin describes how the John Deere Operations Center allows data to be acquired in the field and become available to whoever the farmer wants to share that data with in a matter of minutes. This includes having the data integrate with a third party developer’s software system. This could be shared with a banker, consultant, agronomist or just back to his office. Kevin says the number of developers with integrations has tripled in the last year. Companies who are interested in creating an application that will work with John Deere’s APIs just need to go to the John Deere Developer website.
