Agricultural community harvests value of data with Dawex technology

The agricultural sector is highly digitized and data is a critically important asset. Individual farmers rely on data, as does cooperatives, research and educational entities, financial institutions, multinationals, and other downstream industries. Exchanging data helps every link in the food chain overcome challenges, optimize yields, and control costs.

To keep the data flowing, Agdatahub, convening more than 30 public and private stakeholders, turned to Dawex to create API-Agro, the Data Exchange Platform for the French and European agricultural sector. Today, the flourishing agricultural data marketplace provides a secure, compliant ecosystem for sourcing and exchanging both open and commercializable data.


Adapting to changing markets and staying competitive is a constant objective within the agriculture ecosystem. Relevant, timely data is how the industry not only survives change but thrives in the face of it. The group knew they needed a secure data exchange platform but they had several non-negotiable requirements.


  • - Proven security
  • - Easy, fast and scalable
    - Agri-specific
    - Traceability and data governance

Among the many solutions Agdatahub evaluated for their data exchange needs, only Dawex Data Exchange technology could meet all their criteria.
