About the Event

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 from both within Singapore and further afield, the Maritime CIO Forums have 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, regional and international 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
  • Putting information security onto the boardroom agenda
  • The Digital Age - maximising efficiencies with next generation solutions for the maritime market
  • Harnessing disruptive innovation in the maritime sector
  • Case studies and lessons from the Energy and Automotive sectors
  • Sessions will be led by panel discussions and interactive discussion with the audience. 

Highly targeted, this year’s Digital Ship Maritime CIO Forum in Singapore will consider the future of shipping and how the CIO’s role can influence sustainability and competitiveness in a fast paced and ever changing maritime environment. It will provide an opportunity for some of the industry’s leading technology experts and business heads to discuss and debate the on-going role of IT and communications in the shipping industry and help to solve the technology, leadership and business challenges ahead.
