John Deere Opens the MyJohnDeere Platform to Collaborating Software Developers 
and Companies 
Agricultural industry software companies will leverage MyJohnDeere to assist 
customers in managing machine and agronomic data. 
OLATHE, Kan., Nov. 14, 2013 /CNW/ -- In order to provide more value to 
agricultural producers, John Deere is collaborating with other businesses to 
deliver new applications and services that help customers more quickly turn 
data into management decisions. This collaboration supports improved 
productivity, efficiency and yield. Companies will provide software and 
applications to interface with MyJohnDeere, JDLink™, and Wireless Data 
Transfer – three important elements of Deere's overall technology strategy 
for the agricultural industry. 
In 2012, John Deere introduced MyJohnDeere, a comprehensive information 
platform to help agricultural producers consolidate the management of 
equipment information, production data and farm operations. This centralized, 
online platform allows producers to access, view, archive, manage and share a 
wide variety of business information. 
"Our goal is to provide a preferred, safe and secure environment for these 
applications, while building valuable features to connect customers with 
trusted advisors," said Cory Reed, Senior Vice President, Intelligent 
Solutions Group, Deere & Company.  "Customers will be able to make choices 
about the use and flow of the data." 
MyJohnDeere is an open platform that provides customers with a complete and 
comprehensive solution for their data management needs. Customers are able to 
view and manage this information from smart phones, tablets, and computers 
when and where they need it. 
Reed said the Deere strategy of non-exclusive collaboration with other 
companies will enable data to be available in a convenient, easy-to-use 
platform, as determined by the customer, while maintaining John Deere's core 
principles surrounding data management. A special web site,, has been created to explain Deere's position on data 
management and security. 
"The MyJohnDeere platform will allow input suppliers, ag retailers, local 
agronomists and software companies to provide applications and software that 
connect through the platform," said Reed. "A recent DuPont Pioneer 
announcement is an example of how these collaborations will greatly benefit 
our customers by expanding the choices they have to improve productivity, 
efficiency and yield. Producers should also expect to see more collaborative 
applications with other businesses going forward."
