The Maritime Launch of Big Data | Euroconsult

Eriksen steps back from the podium, and DNV GL's outgoing Maritime CEO, Tor Svensen (the new Group Executive VP), admits the society erred in a 2012 survey, when it underestimated the impact of Big Data on ships.
Technology developed much faster than expected, said Svensen. "Everything became software-driven, from the chips on equipment to networks of equipment sharing with each other. It's now taken for granted that we have onboard coms and massive data, where recently there was little." Svensen refers obliquely to the newly pervasive satellite-enabled shore monitoring of vessel manifest, performance and location data making maritime management for everyone a little less laisse-fair. Yet, while better broadband access via always-on Ku- or Ka-band have grown channels for Big Data, the jury seems hung on where the most value is in the "constant coms" used and generated by a ship (and its Internet of Things). Bandwidth to monitor motors and men isn't loved by all, yet it's the reality in some fleets. Numbers are clearer for crew-use Sat-Coms, but operational data-transfer demand is on the march. "Today, you need a big IT unit just to filter out the junk," said Svensen of bandwidth shared by crew and ship.
