DMIᵀᴹ Index for Agricultural & Construction Machinery

February 2, 2022


The DMIᵀᴹ Index for major retailers is in the range of 3.5% to 4.5%. Deere & Company and Caterpillar have DMI’s Index of 3.60% and 4.45% respectively driven by the valuation of telematics data. 

A higher DMI Index is generally preferable across companies and industries. By way of reference, Google’s DMI Index is 93 percent as we will discuss in a separate blog.



  • DMI Index = Data Valuation / Enterprise Value
  • Data Valuation is the sum of the valuation of covered datasets including telematics, customers, dealers, reference data, supply chain, employees, real estate, equipment and regulatory compliance
  • Enterprise Value =  Equity Value + Long Term Debt – Cash, a key metric used in the investment community
  • Telematics data is the information generated by agricultural, mining and construction equipment



The data valuation relies exclusively on publicly-available data sources such as SEC filings, industry research and comparable transactions from December 2021. The total value of data will likely be higher with the coverage of additional datasets.
