Phil Parry, Chairman, Spinnaker Global Ltd (Spinnaker)

Spinnaker Global invited leading shipowners to put forward their four best employees in the following categories: chief engineer; captain; marine superintendent; fleet management; technical superintendent. To date 150 of these professionals have been profiled. Phil Parry shares the startling findings.

SESSION 8: BIG DATA: THE BIG QUESTIONS ANSWERED

The use of Big Data analytics in applications such as remote performance and condition monitoring is the single most disruptive technology in shipping today, with the potential to achieve huge efficiencies, savings and competitive advantage. It will slash maintenance costs, manning costs, fuel costs and hugely reduce downtime.

14.30 PART ONE BIG DATA: HARNESSING THE POTENTIAL

Despite its importance, shipowners' understanding of the potential benefits of this technology is limited. This session will first hear from OEMs, suppliers and class societies on what they can offer the market. Then, we will consider the ways in which the intelligent use of Big Data will transform the shipping industry, including issues such as its potential to change the way ships are designed, equipped and manned in future.
