Hands-on Experiences for the Digital Journey
Digital Transformation is a journey which starts from the digital savvy customer and involve every business aspect at end-to-end level. As digital technology evolves, digital transformation success requires careful cooperation, thorough planning and the participation of every company division, abolishing silos and extending roles. Digital transformation has evolved from a single trend to a core component of the today business strategy.
In its second implementation, the Digital Business Transformation Conference changes scope and provides a forum dialogue to the stakeholders who act as the digital change agents of their companies. The target of the conference is the executives who have taken on the responsibility for actions which lead to the digital transformation, to show and share experiences and methods they have acquired with the audience.
The Digital Business Transformation Conference 2017 is addressing C-Level Executives that are responsible to recognize, design and implement the digital strategy for the next day. To be more precise, it applies to CEO’s, General Managers, CIO and IT Managers, COO’s, Marketing and Digital Marketing Officers, CISOs etc.

Shipping is waking up to a new era, where digitalisation is creating increased opportunity for development and innovation. With this in mind, Digital Ship is excited to be heading back to Japan to hold the next in our series of highly respected Maritime CIO Forums, where the focus will be on how to drive these opportunities, and how to address the challenges and questions these advances in technology are posing to our industry.
Through three key sessions, we will ask how the industry is responding to change and investigate what technology and digital transformation can do for us.
Digitalisation is re-shaping the world and creating increased opportunity for development and innovation. Revolutionary concepts plus the evolution and advancement of existing platforms are providing unparalleled growth opportunities for shipping and related transport and supply chain infrastructure. However, achieving digital success requires knowledge and understanding, and an ability to drive your company's digital thinking and transformation rather than be driven by it.
Digital Ship's 4th Annual Maritime CIO Forum Rotterdam will investigate how we can harness all these opportunities and will debate which are going to stick and make a difference. We will ask how can we identify the real digital legacy in front of us and truly re-define digitalisation in maritime and transport.
This high-level Forum will look at issues in digital transformation and innovation in shipping, and this year – owing to the strategic location of Rotterdam – we will place an additional emphasis on the digital supply chain and logistics market, and integration with maritime transportation.
Following the tradition of the past years, AMMITEC as a non-profit organization supports the efforts of NGO’s in Greece to offer a helping hand to the less fortunate.
This year we made a monetary donation to the following charitable organizations hoping that it will make the difference in lives of those in need.
This is only made possible through our members’ and sponsors’ ongoing support, thanks to which we are in a position to help people less privileged.
The Association of Maritime Managers in Information Technology & Communications (AMMITEC) has published cyber security guidance to increase awareness in shipping. The Greece-based association created a team of IT and communications professionals to produce the Cyber Security Awareness document. This online document provides general information and guidance on cyber security to shipowners, operators and managers. It highlights the risk to electronic navigation and radar bridge systems of cyber attacks, and provides guidelines on how to improve email security and reduce the risks from removable media. The document also has a section on social engineering and social media.
As Shore and Satellite Communications continuously evolve over time, Internet access is a feature available to most vessels of our fleets and all office staff. Nowadays, more and more core ships’ & office systems are networked together and connected to the public Internet.
- Bridge Navigation
- Propulsion and machinery management
- Power control
- Ships Security
- Cargo Management Systems
- Crew Welfare (Crew Lan, Wi-Fi hotspots, Internet browsing etc.)
- Crew personal mobile devices connected to ship’s network
Although this includes many benefits, it also contains some major risks. Considering this, some major Organizations like Bimco, Clia , ICS, Intercargo and Intertanko have begun to develop Cyber Security Guidelines in order to raise awareness of the safety, security and commercial risks for shipping companies.
The Maritime Safety Committee has approved cyber risk and security guidelines put forward by Bimco and the USA in May.
When on Monday 25th of July, a common friend announced that “Aris passed away” the first reaction was that this could not be true … Although attended, the bad news were very difficult to believe them…
Always kind, always active, always humorist, after an unequal war with cancer during the last months, Aris lost the final battle, in the age of only 57 years.
