Presentation Title:

Is it time to combine Business intelligence, Business Policy and Business Culture to lead traditional shipping management into the next era?

Shipping companies have evolved their management systems by increasingly incorporating industry requirements. Initially these systems where designed to cater to the ISMC prerequisites, however, over time, additional requirements such as ISO, class, statutory, customer and stakeholders’ requests have been integrated. Undergoing this process IT, ERP, OLTP, BI information and BA solutions have been developed as ancillary / support solutions.

Today, computational capabilities continue to rapidly evolve, and the industry is being bombarded with vendors promoting various technologies such as IoT, cloud apps, block chain, machine learning, and cybersecurity.
While the degree of complexity and effectiveness in management systems varies across companies, more and more businesses realize that real time data driven decisions provide a window of opportunity in delivering better services, reducing management and operational costs and successfully adapting to new requirements.
With this in mind, it is of paramount importance to embrace change and redesign management systems, incorporating the huge capacities that BI solutions are offering.
This presentation provides an approach as to how the framework of such an endeavor can be developed, taking into account the company’s vision, policy and cultural aspects.
