Maritime Big Data Forum
- 30 May

The Power of the Digitally Connected Ship


Shipping is waking up to a new digital age, and two of the most important issues within the maritime transport system, where digitalisation is creating increased opportunity for development and innovation, are operational efficiency and safety. Much has been made of new and improved integrated platforms designed to influence both of these key elements, and in the last 12 months we have seen various stakeholders launching "ecosystems" designed to improve integration and thus drive both efficiency and safety; between the various systems on-board, from ship to shore, as well as between different onshore devices.

Digital Ship's Maritime Big Data Forum will investigate how these ecosystems have developed and how they are changing the way shipping companies operate, now and into the future of maritime digitalisation.

SESSION ONE

An Overview of New Integrated Platforms
Much has been made of new and improved integrated platforms, and in the last 12 months we have seen various stakeholders launching "ecosystems" designed to improve integration and thus drive both efficiency and safety; between the various systems on-board, from ship to shore, as well as between different onshore devices.

  • How have these ecosystems and platforms arisen and why does the maritime sector need these now?
  • What are the drivers for developing these?
  • What are the opportunities for new and existing stakeholders to offer innovative services?
SESSION TWO

Protection in the Big Data Era
Efficiency and safety are at the heart of these initiatives. What role does/should regulation play in the future of open data exchange? How should a market of limited size like maritime incentivise open data exchange, and ensure these platforms really do improve the flow of data between different stakeholders in the industry. What are the legal and commercial conditions for increased information collaboration between maritime stakeholders?

  • How is safety and security driving new platform developments?
  • What role does/should regulation play in the future of open data exchange?
  • How is the industry addressing the increased cyber threat Big Data initiatives represent?
SESSION THREE

Survival of the Fittest: The Business Case and Future Legacy of Big Data Ecosystems
Shipping companies already generate large amounts of data, with equipment like the VDR a prime example. However, they rarely have processes and procedures in place to turn this sea of data into valuable, actionable information. Is connecting to a data platform merely a small step in a more extensive process that shipping companies will have to become involved with to optimise their operations in a data-rich future?

Where does the revenue come from in future open data sharing models, and what would the implications be for companies sharing data through a platform that is later discontinued? What is really driving data driven efficiency?

  • How can shipping companies use these platforms to optimise their operations in a data-rich future?
  • Where does the revenue come from in a future of open data exchange?
  • How can the industry leverage this technology to build a more efficient future?
  • How can data owners be incentivised to share information that has previously been considered a competitive advantage?
