Radio Holland Group has signed a strategical agreement with Cisco, with the two companies to cooperate on the development of maritime ICT solutions in areas such as remote monitoring and diagnostics services, data management and networks on board.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“In a challenging maritime market it is Radio Holland’s drive to keep finding and developing solutions that reduce the ‘cost of ownership’ of vessels and improve the efficiency of ship’s operations. If a ship can’t sail because of technical problems, the costs incurred are substantial. Our customers are looking for innovative ways to make and keep the operations of their fleet more reliable, efficient and effective,” said Dennis Mol, chief operations officer at Radio Holland Group.

“Together with our partner Cisco and with our complementary expertise, we can develop scalable ICT solutions for various types of ships and market segments. We aim to translate 100 years of Radio Hollands experience into the right ‘dashboards’, creating useful information which will allow our customers to optimise their operations and to give them optimal support.”

“Radio Holland sees opportunities to improve the unlocking of data on board in line with the trend of the ‘Internet of Things’ and to optimise the data connection between ship and shore. With our knowhow in maintenance processes we are also continuing to develop predictive maintenance concepts.”

This new agreement follows on from a recent initiative announced by Cisco to establish an investment fund in cooperation with the Dutch government to stimulate ‘Digital Acceleration’ in The Netherlands.{/mprestriction}

  • StratumFive launches collaborative workspace

    StratumFive has launched Podium, a collaborative workspace that connects applications, data, and people, across the maritime community.

    Podium connects any data source or third party application and integrates them within its timeline architecture. Users can quickly visualise correlated data streams in an agile dashboard environment, transforming operational decision-making, in a flexible and collaborative workspace.

    Powerful features and configurability allow users across an enterprise to easily build their own dashboards, customised data mapping, interactive displays and alerts, from any location. This enables owners, operators and managers to streamline and standardise the data they use, whilst reducing costs by discarding duplicate data sets.

    Podium ingests, unifies and visualises billions of data points and scales to accommodate user demands and data volumes, whilst maintaining complete consistency in terms of output for all users.

    In addition, the Podium partnership program will enable start-ups and existing digital providers to expand their maritime presence easily by accessing StratumFive’s global client base, data holdings and technical infrastructure.

    Podium launches with a series of in-house options including voyage monitoring, weather routing and StratumFive’s next generation compliance and tracking applications.

    “With many years spent in operations around the world, I have been frustrated by the inefficiencies and costs caused by poor data acquisition, processing and communication across applications and stakeholders,” said Mike Powell, strategy director, StratumFive.

    “Until now, digitalisation has often made things worse for people working on ships and at shore, as increasing enterprise-wide data and information demands require too much manual intervention and effort. Currently, high levels of activity do not always equal productivity.

    “Podium is designed to be the workspace for the whole enterprise, linking data and applications, ensuring all stakeholders not only start from the same page, but also have the tools they need to maximise the efficiency and value of their part of the voyage.”

    Ross Martin, COO, StratumFive, added: “It is true that shipping businesses globally are currently not reaping the promised rewards of digitalisation - but Podium provides the solution that our industry desperately needs to realise cost savings and other operational efficiencies.

    “A growing number of operators are laboriously gathering data from a number of silos and trying to make sense of it using generic ‘business intelligence’ tools. These tools do not offer the maritime domain specific functionality, nor the degree of automation required to make smarter operational decisions faster.”

    StratumFive consulted closely with the industry in the development of Podium. Major owners and operators are already using the platform across their daily operations, with reportedly more preparing to adopt the technology in the near future.
