The shipping industry is known to have many challenges. From CO2 emission rules to the fast-growing number of cyberattacks, ships and crews are vulnerable and must stay safe at all times. Onboard computer technology must become simpler, more secure, and resilient.
We can see how digital technology helps transform the way we live our lives and disrupt business models. It’s hard to say just one technology will transform the maritime industry. The interplay and overlap between the technology areas are crucial, but this transformation has yet to make a significant impact on shipping.
Scale Computing provides this white paper to explain the increased dependence on the combination of onboard IT infrastructure, the cloud and central, shore-based data centers.
This paper is intended for shipowners, fleet managers, and IT staff implementing and managing maritime information technology
