What brought you to DAS?

I was really impressed by the culture at DAS. I believe that culture is the main driver of success in a business (especially a startup), so for me it looked like DAS was going places. This combined with an experienced leadership team and strong vision for the company made it an easy decision. After 12 months at DAS I've found the culture to be even better!

Tell us what you do, in a nutshell?

I manage the data pipeline here at DAS. This covers sourcing and transforming the data and then making it available for customers. I love the enthusiasm and openness at DAS. Everyone has such unique skill sets and we have the opportunity to expand these.

Core to the DAS vision is ensuring that rural communities have greater access to independent insights, backed by science. That’s why we have committed to giving farmers, growers and owners access to the DAS Platformâ„¢ from the very beginning.

Any farmer, grower or owner can gain a wealth of proprietary insights on their own property including productivity, sustainability and historic yields; exclusive climate and risk insights including bushfire, flood, drought stress, frost and water risk; unlimited “one click” rural property reports for their own farm; as well as science-supported productivity monitoring & predictions.

Backing Rural Communities

Our Founding Story

DAS (Digital Agriculture Services) was established in 2017 in partnership with CSIRO, Australia’s national science and research agency, our founding equity partner. While not everyone knows CSIRO outside of its home country, here’s a little-known fact: if you're reading this online, the chances are you're using WiFi, invented and patented by CSIRO in the 1990s.

Our partnership, at its core, was all about turning science into solutions, translating research into lasting value, and transforming agriculture for the future. Our origins reflect our deep commitment to what we today call 'putting science into the hands of decision makers.'

DAS is immensely proud of the relationship we have built with CSIRO, which ranks in the top one percent of global institutions for agricultural sciences. Our relationship feeds into the DAS product cycle, ensuring we scale global SaaS and data products.
Why DAS matters to customers

DAS today is:

Helping the world's most important companies meet the needs of the world's most important industry.
Our cloud-based SaaS platform and data products empower professionals with specialised insights on the agri customers, assets and portfolios they target - at farm, regional and continental scale.

Supporting digital transformation in financial services and agri enterprises.
DAS is a linchpin for digital innovation, enabling the digital transformation of internal processes, improved risk management and targeted growth with new data and workflows.

Delivering impact from science.
We’re unlocking the ecosystem of data that exists around the farmer, integrating it with decision-making tools to transform agribusiness.

DAS is a backbone for modern agri-finance and enterprise. It is helping the industry materially transform the way it lends, insures, invests finance and allocates capital in a high-risk climate.

Rural data is often fragmented, inaccessible or unintelligible. This means billions in decisions are being based on inaccurate, unreliable or incomplete data. When you couple that with mega-trends including climate change, global food demand or population growth, the importance of addressing agriculture’s risk profile is even higher.

By building the best SaaS company dedicated to the global financial services and agri-enterprise, we believe we will:

Create fairer financing for everyone.
This starts with farmers, who may not always be DAS’s customers, but are significant beneficiaries of access to and innovation in financial services to support their livelihood.

Create safer environments for everyone.
Predicting risk in a changing climate starts with quantifying physical risk, whether simplistic or sophisticated, at both asset + portfolio levels.

Protect & feed a growing population.
Improving the risk model surrounding agri-financial services is at the centre of DAS, connecting the future of food to true risk and visibility.

Why DAS matters to society

Climate change is creating risks and opportunities for our communities, our clients and the customers they serve. Financial services industry and agri-enterprises are searching for solutions and meaningful data to move them from a place of ‘talking’ to action-oriented ‘doing’, to better understand and manage climate-related risks & opportunities and meet regulatory requirements in an insight-driven, actionable way.

Find out how Location Intelligence can transform decision making and help address opportunities and risks related to portfolios – particularly with regard to climate change.

We are a mission-critical fintech company operating at the intersection of digital transformation, nature based peril and global food security
