The Future of iShipping
13 October 2016, Singapore

Digital Ship is pleased to announce a new format for our 10th annual Digital Ship event in Singapore: The Maritime CIO Forum Singapore. And this year the focus is on The Future of iShipping and how to address and harness the opportunities, challenges and questions advances in technology are posing to our industry.

How are advances and new channels in satellite operations changing the face of communications, data usage and sharing? With increased data usage comes increased risk – so what are the right strategies for managing safety and security? And what is the impact of all of this on the people that really matter – our crew? Then bringing it all together – how are all of these innovations in the maritime cloud and the Internet of Things influencing The Future of iShipping?
