Digital Ship - CIO Forum Rotterdam
Rotterdam, The Netherlands
26 September 2017
Shipping is waking up to a new age where digitalisation is re-shaping the world and creating increased opportunity for development and innovation. Revolutionary concepts plus the evolution and advancement of existing platforms are providing unparalleled growth opportunities for shipping and related transport and supply chain infrastructure.
But achieving digital success requires knowledge and understanding, and an ability to drive your company's digital thinking and transformation rather than be driven by it.
Digital Ship's 4th Annual Maritime CIO Forum Rotterdam will investigate how we can harness all these opportunities and will debate which are going to stick and really make a difference. We will ask how can we identify the real digital legacy in front of us and truly re-define digitalisation in maritime and transport.
Session 1: The Maritime Satcom Summit
For the maritime sector, broadband connectivity is becoming an increasing priority as routes diversify and technology advances. End to end connectivity is a requirement from an operational, regulatory and crew perspective to ensure continued efficiency and performance consistency. This session will focus on investigating the evolution of maritime mobility and connectivity
This opening session of the day will look at how Innovation & Evolution in Maritime Connectivity is changing the landscape by improving operational agility, creating enhanced efficiency and above all reducing costs for the ship owner and manager.
