Kognifai Cloud ecosystem launched by Kongsberg

Kongsberg has launched a new open digital platform called Kognifai, which aims to optimise data access and analysis through the use of Cloud technologies and provide an integrated development and distribution platform for applications from both Kongsberg and third-parties.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“With Kognifai we are launching an open ecosystem for customers, partners, and suppliers,” said Hege Skryseth, executive vice president, Kongsberg and president, Kongsberg Digital.

“It will create value for our customers by allowing them to harness the power of their data on their own terms. This way, they will reap the benefits of the digital transformation in an easier and more efficient way, and we will collaborate with them to drive the business outcomes that they are seeking.”

Kognifai is designed to be an open digital ecosystem for users to collect, store, analyse, and apply the data they generate using Kongsberg and third-party systems.

The company says that it also intends for it to act as a platform for development of new data-centric applications, providing a single portal to systems developed by Kongsberg itself along with what it calls “certified third-party developers.”

“The launch of Kognifai is great news for Kongsberg’s main civilian industries,” said Jørn Seglem, SVP digital platform and analytics at Kongsberg Digital.

“The Kognifai ecosystem is built on a core of cybersecurity, customers’ ownership of their information, and data integrity, but the open standards make it easy to add and integrate both Kongsberg and third-party applications.”

“We are amazed to see the cross-industry innovation and sharing that is already ongoing in our open ecosystem, and we are actively working with selected customers and partners on core business transformation challenges where new solutions are appearing due to the platform.”

Kongsberg has been working on the Kognifai project since 2014, with different business units across the Group collaborating to merge different aspects of their technology and expertise to create a unified response to the growing wave of digitalisation across all industries, with the goal of creating value from advances in areas such as the internet of things, automation and robotics.

The platform will allow customers to subscribe to the systems they need as and when they need them, following a software-as-a-service (SaaS) approach, which Kongsberg says will open the possibility for smaller and niche companies with limited resources to bring their technology to the Kognifai community.

The company says it will also be taking steps to maintain an effective level of cybersecurity across the platform infrastructure, operating a strict certification process for all third-party services and applications.{/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.
