Azure Data Manager for Agriculture brings together Bayer’s decades of agricultural experience with Microsoft‘s cloud solutions, which drive the industry forward through ready-made functionality and a robust infrastructure that allows innovators to focus on differentiated value. Following the initial preview release starting today, which will allow customers to explore the capabilities of Azure Data Manager and AgPowered Services, full commercial availability will be announced at a later time.

“Only innovation can ensure global food security while protecting the planet. Modern agriculture and food production generate an enormous amount of valuable data that can drive productivity and sustainability,” said Dr. Robert Reiter , Head of R&D at Bayer’s Crop Science Division. “However, this data is often disconnected, unusable across the value chain, and the costs of building digital solutions from scratch are high. Our new cloud-based solutions help overcome these challenges. Customers can use the infrastructure and resources to build your own digital products and solutions based on the world’s most robust collection of agricultural data.”
