Maritime CIO Forum @ Cayman Maritime Week
4 May 2016
The global challenge facing the shipping sector is to meet the ever-increasing demands of a dynamic and fast changing world in a sustainable and responsible manner. Clearly "business as usual" will not be enough to meet these demands. Innovation in products, services and processes holds the key to achieving safe, reliable, cost efficient solutions that also achieve economic, social and environmental sustainability targets.
With an expected audience of up to 150 of the most senior maritime executives expected to attend the first Maritime CIO Forum @ Cayman Maritime Week, this event has been developed to address issues and trends that leaders in the shipping community face in an increasingly demanding environment; expected to deliver strategies capable of both driving revenue and reducing costs - all while making smart decisions about technology selection, investment and implementation. Throughout this one-day high-level forum industry leaders will share their strategies to address the challenges presented by the new maritime landscape, and the key roles played by innovation and the drive for sustainability.
As well as a focus on technical developments, this forum will address challenges that companies are facing at present - such as:
- How is innovation in communications driving the future of shipping?
- Technology for the new maritime landscape
- Cyber security and future-proofing your IT infrastructure
- The future of unmanned vessels
- Innovating and investing in the industrial Internet of Things (IoT)
- Big data and analytics to drive innovation, competitiveness and growth
