John Deere Releases Significant Enhancements for Its Popular Operations Center

To meet the constantly changing demands of the business of farming, John Deere has improved the look, feel and navigation features of its popular cloud-based system – Operations Center – to bring new levels of clarity and organization to farm data management.


Another improvement John Deere made to the Operations Center is the addition of the new Work Planner feature farmers can use to streamline their work setup experience and help operators start working more quickly in the field.

Going forward, farmers can use the Operations Center to collect and securely store their field, crop, and machine data from their connected machines for easy analysis and decision making. Since the system is cloud-based, it eliminates the need for transferring data via USB sticks.

“We know farmers are always on the move, which makes the mobile app version of Operations Center, more important than ever,” said Jennifer Badding, go-to-market manager – digital technology, with John Deere. “That’s why John Deere has made improvements to both versions, web and mobile, to make them look and function in a similar manner, so farmers have clear and easy access to their data from any device.”

To get the most from John Deere precision ag technologies, Badding said farmers need four things: a Generation 4 CommandCenter display, a StarFire receiver, a JDLink connection, and the Operations Center. “A Generation 4 display gives farmers control of machine functions with more precision, right from the cab, and the StarFire receiver ensures accurate positioning. JDLink serves as the wireless connection between their machines and streams data from the Generation 4 display to the Operations Center.”
