Digital Ship’s Maritime CIO forum, the 16th annual Hamburg event, reviews the latest development in practice and technology to help maritime companies add value to their operations.
Many maritime digital technology debates end up between two poles – people who believe that all the answers you need can be found in data and digital technology, and people who believe that a phone call to the captain can tell you more than any software ever can.
The right answer – as ever – is somewhere between these poles. And where else to work out where that is than Hamburg, which is both a centre for high technology and digital startups, and home of some of the most longest established, successful, and dare we say traditional, shipping companies?
Topics we expect to cover at this year’s maritime CIO forum include:
How the role of maritime IT department changing – from more of a technical role to a project management role
Understanding the changing cybersecurity threat – is it still best kept at bay with “housekeeping” such as regular patching and access / password management?
Digital transformation projects – success stories about what has worked
Advanced technology – satellite communications, software, sensors / IOT, analytics – where are companies finding value?

Please note – this event has been postponed until Autumn – date to be confirmed!
