In this report we describe results of a one-year TO2 institutes project on the development of big data technologies within the milk production chain. The goal of this project is to ‘create’ an integration platform for big data analysis for smart farming and to develop a show case. This includes both technical (hard/software) and organizational integration (developing business ecosystem) and combining and linking of data and models. DLO, NLR and TNO worked together in 2015 towards the realization of an IT data infrastructure that makes it possible to solve to connect data from different sources and models in an effective and safe way, ontology problems, specific analysis tools develop, opportunities and risks to identify and assess the acquired knowledge and experience and present it in a smart farming show case, from 'grass to glass‘.
