Digitalisation will be a key theme for the Maritime CIO Forum which takes place at the Sofitel Shanghai Hyland in Shanghai on 28th November.
Digitalisation is re-shaping the business world and is increasingly important for gaining competitive edge. Emerging technologies, together with the evolution and development of new platforms, are unparalleled opportunities within shipping and the related transport and supply chain infrastructure.
If Industry 4.0 is to be truly realised, then shipping must embrace a new approach to the traditional supply chain. Moving a container involves, on average, 30 different actors and 200 plus interactions – delivery of goods has never been more transparent, nor more complex. So, what can digitalisation do to streamline and integrate shipping with the connected supply chain ecosystem?
Across three key sessions, the forum will discuss how we can identify the real digital opportunity, and related challenges, in front of us and re-define digitalisation in maritime and transport. How can we better understand the business improvements these innovations represent?
There will be three sessions. Session 1: The iShipping Revolution – Transforming the supply chain in the digital era; Session 2: The Maritime Satcom Summit – Investigating the evolution of maritime connectivity; Session 3: Planning for Cyber Resilience and Managing Risk – A fresh look at cyber security, safety and risk.
