What are the IT challenges facing the maritime industry?

Ship connection
Connecting ships poses a particular challenge for IT and communication systems, as each ship requires special infrastructure that functions effectively and reliably both at sea and in port. The special requirements for maritime IT and communication systems require customized solutions for a smooth and reliable connection between the ships and their bases.
Resource planning
The numerous, interconnected trades require time-consuming coordination and complex route planning. Processes based on large amounts of data, such as predictive analytics, support just-in-time planning, the aim of which is to ensure maximum punctuality with minimum use of resources.
Cyber security in the maritime industry is an emerging topic that has often been neglected to date. However, the increasing digitalization and networking of ships poses new risks, as they can become vulnerable to cyber attacks. This can have serious consequences for the safety of crew, passengers and cargo, as well as for the operation of ships
