Ag Leader Puts YOU in Control of Your Data
In today’s climate, many farmers are concerned about companies using files stored, prescriptions created and other farm data that is in the cloud for analysis of their operation which can then be used against them when it’s time to make a purchase decision. These are valid concerns and beg the questions: Should I ditch the cloud? Or how do I KNOW my farm data is really ‘safe’?
Why the cloud?
There are many benefits to cloud-based services on the farm. For some, there are obvious advantages such as connectivity and accessibility of storage the cloud can provide. Having access to your farm data anytime right from your phone, or connecting all of your displays across your operation so each one has all the latest maps and info are good examples. If you’re working with trusted advisors, like an agronomist, to generate custom prescriptions, it’s helpful to have it sent right to your in-cab display. For this kind of connectivity across your farm a cloud-based platform, like AgFiniti, is a perfect fit.
How do you know my data is safe?
What if I’m not ready for the cloud?
Let’s face it, cloud-based platforms aren’t for everyone. If that’s you, SMS Software can help you analyze data collected from just about any brand of display on your farm. While it has the ability to be connected to AgFiniti (which can help you share with your trusted advisors), you can choose for your data to ONLY live on your desktop.
