Just like Grand Central Station serves as a hub for trains and people coming in and out of a city, the John Deere Operations Center serves as a hub for data coming in and out of a producer’s operation.
“That’s where all of our data is feeding in, being processed in a way to be consumed and help [farmers] with their decision making,” Jake Flanders with John Deere told Chuck during the InfoAg Conference. In addition, just like that Grand Central Station, producers can decide which information they want to access and even where or when they want to access it. “You can see [in real-time] exactly where your equipment is at at any time, but it’s also after the fact so you can review it at the end of the day or week. And it’s accessible anywhere [even the cab].”
Jake encouraged producers to get started while the Operations Center is still being offered for free.
“Talk to your dealer, and they can help you get started.”
