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 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.

Three focussed sessions will contain plenary presentations and panel discussions:
Session 1: An Overview of New Integrated Data Sharing Platforms
Session 2: Protection in the Big Data Era
Session 3: Survival of the Fittest: The Business Case and Future Legacy of Big Data Ecosystems
