“The MyJohnDeere operations center is enabling all these software companies and partners is to bring new insights into the operations center for the grower, using all their data and their knowledge coinciding with what’s in MyJohnDeere today,” Deere’s Randy Kasparbauer told Chuck during an interview at the conference that brings together dealers, independent agricultural software application developers and John Deere staff primarily from their Intelligent Solutions Group. “We’re leveraging these [application programming interfaces (APIs)] to really build a platform for these third parties to use the data a grower might share with them in the operations center to let them run their business more effectively on this platform.”
Randy said they are really focused on the transformational growers who are using data to increase the efficiency of their operations. “It’s using data to make these fields more productive. We can’t do everything ourselves. We’re building that platform and making our machines the best, so we’re using those third party applications and software companies to make that happen,” he said.
And the conference venue was definitely an ag nerds paradise.
“It’s a great place to come together and talk about data!”
