Over 60 Information Communication Technology (ICT) international companies are set to exhibit at this year’s Posidonia Exhibition taking place in Athens, Greece from 4-8 June 2018.

Products and services from the realms of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data and Automation to Cyber Protection and Computer Applications will be on display, according to the exhibition organizers.

Digitalization and smart technology have become the key drivers of the industry’s shift from a conventional business operation to a business model of the future.

“In an age of increasing expectations and complexity, it is required to reevaluate today’s business and adopt strategies that enable the maritime industry to scale, while at the same time being more reliable, cost-effective, and customer-centric. To meet the demand, companies have to recognize the importance of being a part of the digital world and incorporating digital strategies. SAP can help shipping companies to create a competitive advantage through innovation and digital transformation with a digital core, business networks, supply chains and the Internet of Things (IoT) technology,”Andreas Xirocostas, Managing Director, SAP Hellas, Cyprus and Malta, said.

“In the shipping industry, IT can be a key contributor in enabling business growth and development: with the need for always-on communication, technology offers ways for users and to stay connected – regardless of their devices, locations or time zones. At the same time, with the great amount of data being transferred continuously and the danger of hacking ever-present, shipping companies need to rethink security to cover even more flex devices and infrastructures.

“The IT of today can offer the right solution to combine advanced security features and protect against risk, along with real-time, work-anywhere mobility to keep end users satisfied, making the worldwide operations of shipping companies more efficient and increasing performance on all levels,” Haris Amourgis, Commercial Sales Manager of HP Hellas, commented.

Posidonia is organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs & Insular Policy, the Union of Greek Shipowners and the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping and with the support of the Municipality of Piraeus and the Greek Shipping Co-operation Committee.

*World Maritime News Team will also be present at this year’s Posidonia.
