Observant Global

Observant Global is a farm information management platform for the agriculture industry that gives farmers access to their data and a tool to view, manage and control their farm operation.

I helped launched the very first version of Observant Global in 2010 and have designed and developed a number of applications to support customers and staff in managing the platform.

The goal has always been to provide users an insight to their data, real—time and historical, helping them make better decisions.
