CLAAS offers a cloud-to-cloud solution for machinery data

Episodes:

As technology evolves, more and more of the players in the machinery business are coming up with ways to store and track the data we get from our implements.

With so many different moving parts, it begs the question — is there a way we can store our data cross-platform?

CLAAS’s recent launch of DataConnect does just that: it allows CLAAS’s Telematics system and other manufacturers systems to be cross-compatible with a cloud-to-cloud solution.

CLAAS’s Jeff Gray was on hand at the National Farm Machinery Show at Louisville, Kentucky, to explain the virtual initiative.

“All too often our Lexion combine is on a farm of another brand, that has all the tractors and sprayers. They are also using Telematics data, so we want to be able to make those two work together. So they have the software that they use — for example, JD Link. It enables our telematics data to be compatible with that,” explains Gray. “So it will upload onto JD Link and vica versa. So they can go to the CLAAS telematics portal, and see the John Deer data, and visa versa, with the CLAAS off the JD Link. It also works with the Case IH and New Holland as well.”

Cost of setup varies between the different brands of machinery, as there are subscription fees that come with each system. In a world where, as Gray notes “data is king,” compatibility makes everyone’s lives a little easier.

“Whether it be agronomic data — which is also transmitted over the Telematics system — or machine health, machine location, machine performance. Anytime that you can access your machine, your combine remotely, as long as you’ve got an iPad, computer, or phone, you can access that machine remotely and monitor its performance, monitor its efficiency, and  see where its location is at, but also look at that agronomic data.”
