Well-connected integrated maritime systems

Well-connected integrated maritime systems

For us, at DANAOS , is like Christmas Came Early!

Eventually, onboard hardware appliances and software apps can find their right fit on the ship’s network and play their role; to securely disseminate role-specific services.

Our onboard ship management, supply, crew management and ISM apps can now be well orchestrated and integrated with hardware and virtual machines, databases, and operating systems with just … a click, bringing into the market a centralized, well-integrated ecosystem of apps that can be installed, configured, updated and launched on-demand directly from the IT admin from the office, onshore.

Where third party platforms, such as private clouds, can ease data transfer, online backup and provide a disaster resilient environment. Where situation awareness will become imminent, increasing operational efficiency on a safer and eco-friendly vessel.

Our vision for integration can now take a step forward and propel a device-user-oriented approach where our apps will be self-adjusted to each user. Where a unique UX will be based on mapping/designing personal dashboards and information will be prioritized based on user-role, location, and current situation.

Utilizing DanaosONE (www.danaos1.com) platform we are deploying a sophisticated, automated toolchain of installers, software packages, web apps, virtual appliances and development stacks materializing the concept of: “Unattended monitoring and detection systems”

Maritime KPIs

Maritime KPIsThe integrated approach of all the functions of a ship management company in one integrated system provides the appropriate infrastructure to support maritime specific KPI’s setup and monitoring.
The new Danaos Web Enterprise Solution has this functionality as built-in. A mechanism to enrich the maritime KPI’s library is available. KPI’s definitions and their arguments are user defined and may be published easily to the system. A framework of utilities is offered to cover the publishing procedure. Members of IT departments or even users can create, compile and test different KPI’s without risking the integrity of the system.
Maritime KPI’s monitoring mechanism provides the appropriate feedback either to a specific department e.g. operational, technical, crewing etc. or to the management. Feedback gives to operators, superintended engineers and other a clear objective picture of their performance, allow them to identify gaps and plan future improvements. Results of KPI’s scoring may be used also for demonstrating performance to 3rd parties and/or business partners.
