Keynote: Closer Than We Think – Shipping's Exponential Future
Innovation Exploration: What is the Potential of Digital & disruptive Technology?
A range of global megatrends are colliding headlong with a range of breakthrough technologies experiencing exponential growth. The combinatorial effect, together with new generational mind-sets, will be a world that changes more in the next few decades than it has in the past few centuries. The impact on shipping will be profound, and there are as many opportunities as there are threats.
According to the experts digital disruption is never driven by incumbent industry players, who are too focused on protecting legacy models and revenues. But can we break that cycle in shipping and maritime? From skunkworks and acquisitions to collaborative partnerships can we leverage disruptive technology for a collective approach to transforming the industry?
Connectivity - The Gateway Drug
For Digital Natives the Internet is as essential as oxygen and the digital transformation of any industry depends upon it. As a result of often misaligned objectives within industry stakeholder groups, getting connectivity onto ships has historically been problematic, but with the advent of connectivity-as-a-service, the landscape has changed.
With enterprise-grade connectivity now an affordable reality the doors are opening to real-time data analytics, performance monitoring and fundamental change in the way ships and equipment can be understood, optimised and utilised. How can connectivity suppliers help operators to get maximum value from their connectivity investments and smart ships?
Blockchain is making headlines in the shipping and maritime industry. This workshop will provide an in-depth opportunity for participants to understand the concept of blockchain, identify a set of critical questions to examine before jumping on the blockchain hype train, and learn about some current concrete use cases and applications within the shipping and maritime industry.
Digital Supply Chain, Increasing Transparency & DX (Digital) Economy
Consumer demands and customer expectations are evolving rapidly, redefining the relationship between shipping, it's suppliers, the cargo owners and the end-users. How can collaborative business models, facilitated by digital technology, enable faster responses, benefit the shipping supply chain as a whole, and begin to create new value?
Join “Mr IoT” – Deloitte Digital’s Chief IoT Technologist Robert Schmid as he shows how IoT can bring business value to the shipping industry—making shipping smarter. Success comes from thinking big, starting small and scaling fast. Learn how capturing value through innovation is a key to thinking big, get tips for how to start small and scale up, and discover how the intersection of people, data and intelligent machines help drive future capabilities of IoT.
During 2017 Gartner predicts that the marketing department will become the largest purchaser of technology in the enterprise, but whilst marketing, PR and media engagement is going social, driven by data, analytics and automation in other sectors, the shipping and maritime industry seems stuck in the past. To what extent is shipping invisible and misunderstood because marketing and PR practitioners and the maritime media are following outdated practices, and what is the opportunity for the industry to use new technology to cut costs and collectively engage better in the digital age?
