Speaker Line Up is Announced for the Maritime Big Data Forum at Nor-Shipping on 30 May

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.

Digital Ship's Maritime Big Data Forum @Nor-Shipping will investigate how data sharing and collaboration is evolving in the maritime sector and changing the way shipping companies operate, now and into the digital maritime future.

Hear what some of our expert speakers have to say about Big Data:

"Shaping the maritime industry with digital transformation. Enabling Wilhelmsen to be an early mover within the shipping and maritime sector." Inge André Sandvik, Chief Digital Officer, Wilh.Wilhelmsen Holding ASA

"Big data is just a buzzword in maritime. Google, Starbucks, Amazon and other e-commerce companies and shippers have long been using big data to make decisions and analysis. Big data is not important, it's the business models and the trends and decisions that are important. Disruption is coming." Frank J Coles, Chief Executive Officer, Transas

"Maritime big data can better help understand how complex, international shipping companies operate and can be used to provide new methods of automation and remote monitoring as well as identify areas where efficiencies can be made. Digital Ship's Maritime Big Data Forum presents an ideal platform for ship owners and operators to meet to discuss their own experiences." Adrian Venables, Cybersecurity Practitioner, Royal Naval Reservist and PhD Researcher, Lancaster University

Be part of the debate on 30 May and let us know if you agree with them.
