DENKAVIT

Denkavit is the specialist in young animal nutrition and a leading partner for farmers and the feed industry. Denkavit invests heavily in research and development and runs a number of research farms in the Netherlands and France to study veal calves, rearing calves, sows and piglets.

The Export Department is responsible for the distribution of Denkavit milk substitutes and piglet feeds in over 50 countries throughout the world.

Customer Challenge

Denkavit had used JD Edwards for back office administration since 2005 with business intelligence at the center of their operations.

Denkavit needed a strategic partner to help them future proof their systems and implement a customized solution to monitor the animals at their research farms.

The customized solution had been in use since 2012, and combined the back-office system with the Veal Farmer Portal (VFM) accessible on iPad. The iPad allows the calf specialist to request and capture data while in the barn. The dashboard information is also available in PDF format so that it can be presented off line to the veal farmer. The system allows Denkavit to monitor the health of individual calves in real-time, and to monitor feed stocks and administration.

One important success factor was the clear definition of measurements so that all data was entered consistently, for unambiguous reporting. The Calf Value Rating was a good example. This figure is measured by calf based on average daily growth, and compared with calves in other herds.

WHY DENKAVIT CHOSE REDFAIRE INTERNATIONAL

Denkavit chose Redfaire International to deploy a custom solution for farm administration. As part of the implementation, Redfaire International carried out tests on the design of the data model with regard to the business process, the existing administration and the information requirements of the business.

Partner requirements.

  • Deep technical skills required for JD Edwards Enterprise One and Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition.
  • Requirement to monitor data in real time.
  • Support required for data model testing.

In the future, Denkavit is interested in using sensors in barns and the Internet of Things (IoT) to further develop the role of business intelligence in farming. With this project successfully completed, these types of future innovations are easily achievable.

In the future, Denkavit is interested in using sensors in barns and the Internet of Things (IoT) to further develop the role of business intelligence in veal farming. With this project successfully completed, these types of future innovations are easily achievable.

How User Experience Design has become key in your IT strategy

When talking to colleagues and customers below the age of 35, I hear most of them talk about their user experience with IT in terms of how intuitive an app is. It should be simple, should show you only what you need. Simply put, it should be user designed.
