DataConnect – Case IH, New  Holland Agriculture and STEYR Join Data  Exchange Initiative with CLAAS, 365FarmNet and John Deere CNH Industrial joins DataConnect


CNH Industrial has joined DataConnect, a data   interface project recently announced by CLAAS, John Deere and 365FarmNet. With the addition of CNH Industrial brands Case IH, New Holland Agriculture  and STEYR, the  cloud-to-cloud  effort now  includes five  major farm equipment brands and their respective telematics platforms.

DataConnect  enables the exchange of essential machinery  data between the platforms to allow users to view all of their mixed-brand fleet in formation within the single  platform of their choice.  Previously, viewing  such information required duplicating  efforts by using  each manufacturer’s  separate and corresponding platforms or web portals to view such machine information.

The  structure  of the direct  cloud-to-cloud  solution enables  a seamless and automated  dataflow without  any effort for the  customer. The real-time  data exchange  allows a live  overview about the  whole machine fleet.  Furthermore, DataConnect  works without  any additional hardware  and software components and ensures secure data handling. With this new approach, customers can view their  current  machine fleet  in one portal.  The solution will  apply to hundreds  of thousands of already connected machines. 

The addition of CNH Industrial means that users of AFS Connect, the telematics platform of  Case IH, MyPLM  Connect for New  Holland, and S-Tech for STEYR, will have the option for  the real-time, cloud- to-cloud  exchange of data with both John Deere Operations Center and CLAAS TELEMATICS or 365FarmNet portals.


Just as CLAAS, John Deere and 365FarmNet, CNH Industrial is also a member and strong supporter of the Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF), and their ongoing efforts. As the participating companies develop their cloud-to-cloud solution, they plan to share their experience and learnings with AEF in an effort to support industry standards.

Any  interested  agricultural  machinery manufacturers  and software providers as well as associations and standardisation committees are welcome to help develop the  existing  interface.  A first insight  into the operation  of DataConnect will be possible  on the Case  IH, CLAAS, 365FarmNet,  John  Deere and  New Holland stands at AGRITECHNICA 2019, while the official launch is scheduled for summer 2020.
