Open source Solution DocDokuPLM contribution to AgriTech

How DocDokuPLM is contributing to precision agriculture

Intelligence, a legal entity of Airbus Defence and Space division, asked DocDoku to realize the new generation of its web portal dedicated to precision agriculture and crops management.


Intelligence asked DocDoku to create the new generation of its web portal dedicated to precision agriculture and crops management.

All season long, this service provides reliable and exploitable information to be used by farmers. Combining satellite imagery with drones, aircraft and agronomic expertise, these recommendations transcribe the real needs of the plants on plot scale in the form of documents, including text, tables and graphs of values, as well as agricultural plots cards. Furthermore, they permit to bring the proper imputs quantity in the right place at the right time. These recommendations are delivered to service subscribers through the web portal.

Another major goal of this project, but not the least, was to build a real business repository, which is exposed and usable by other IS applications.



Scalability and robustness

In order to comply with these challenges, we based the new web portal development on our digital open source platform DocDokuPLM.
Based on the latest state of the art digital technologies, our platform was the answer to scalability and robustness requirements of such a key project, as it is for our industrials customers already in production.

Ergonomics and performance

Our many and various IS experiences in web / mobile development allow us to remain at the cutting edge of cross-platform and web technologies.
We particularly took care of the User Experience because we know that it’s really important for final users to adopt the solution (see screenshots).


An open, secured and upgradable business backbone

In order to build an open but secure business backbone, that can be used by others internal IS or external parts, we relied on the open architecture of our digital platform with many opportunities for integration in an extended IS.
DocDokuPLM is a real extensible PaaS for our customers’s business. So we could reuse and integrate a lot of our software components thanks to our multiple interfaces, i.e. our REST Web Services API or our both Java / Javascript SDK.

So by leveraging our existing platform already in production, the project benefits both open software architecture and robust and reliable features, which significantly decrease the risk of such a digital project.
