Amazon Web Services (AWS) has now partnered with Yara, a farming solutions provider. Boosting crop production is essential to make sure there is adequate food to provide overpopulated world while reducing the environmental costs. IoT technologies play an important role here.
Marcus Furuholmen, VP of Digital Production at Yara, said:
“Yara’s vision is simple yet extremely powerful. Through our worldwide operations we seek to contribute to a collaborative society, a world without hunger, and a planet respected. The digitalization of our production system contributes to all these goals.
The new Yara DPP will help us substantially improve efficiencies, foster collaboration with partners on new business models, and, most importantly, increase the quality of our fertilizer products, which will lead to more mouths fed globally in a sustainable way.”
Next generation Digital Production Platform of Yara will be developed in association with AWS. DPP from now on will use AWS IoT SiteWise, AWS IoT Greengrass, AWS IoT Core, and AWS IoT Analytics.
Bill Vass, VP of Technology at AWS, stated:
“We are proud to help Yara with its important mission to responsibly feed the world and protect the planet for years to come. The transformation of their production system is yet another example of how AWS helps and supports customers’ unique innovation endeavors.
The Yara and AWS collaboration will have a profound impact on Yara’s global production system. With AWS as its preferred DPP cloud provider, Yara gains access to the broadest and deepest set of cloud functionality, the highest performance and security, and the largest community of partners and customers of any other infrastructure provider.”
