WENATCHEE, Wash. - Aug. 29, 2014 - PRLog -- ApRecs and our parent company Centricity has joined the Open Ag Data Alliance.  Open Ag Data Alliance is enabling interoperability through secure, public API’s for transferring and using data. Farmers will be free to choose cloud providers they trust while retaining control over who can use their data.

The OADA community is building a set of open API’s for securely using data with the cloud. Anyone can use these API’s in their own cloud systems, and if they pass the same software tests as the open reference implementation, they will be considered technically compliant. The organization founded in America’s Heartland doesn't set for the privacy or sharing policies rather it supports clear understandings with stakeholders and the technical platform to support those agreed practices.

Drew Zabrocki, Manager Director of ApRecs says, “We are encouraged by the visionary leadership of Mr. Aaron Ault and look forward to the ongoing debates and discussions that will allow the industry to arrive at a socially accepted practice for information exchange.  When speaking with Aaron, he confirmed that “OpenAg is more about standards and technical interoperability than policy.”

The OADA API is intended to serve as a specification for all providers that desire to be OADA compliant. This API does not attempt to define or enforce a single industry data standard. The goal of this API is to enable interoperability between the many precision Ag software systems and existing industry data types. By providing an extensible API that focuses on information exchange and facilitates data transformations an open heterogeneous environment that supports many legacy, current, and future data formats can be embraced.

ApRecs (http://aprecs7.centricityllc.com/) provides permission-based market awareness through food safety record keeping solutions so that Growers can focus on growing, Packers can ship to market quickly, and Marketers can be reassured of a compliant product. The software is built to read reports from the leading Recommendation and Application Recordkeeping applications, so you don’t have to manually re-key data. Further, the data analysis module allows for receiving, processing and post-harvest data to be included, analyzed and reported in near-real-time.
