on BFM Business

Yanis SOUAMI has been invited on BFM Business to share his vision about the new trends in the maritime industry. He explained the central role of the Ocean in the wordwilde economy and how a good use of data will change tremndously this industry in the coming years. 

The world economy relies directly or indirectly on the maritime economy. Yet, contrary to what one might think, the maritime economy is struggling to really digitalize. Fortunately, many players like SINAY are helping the maritime based industries to facilitate their digital transition (by providing targeted indicators to make data-driven decision).

Overview of the maritime sector

70% of the world’s goods are transported by sea and 98% of Internet telecommunications pass through cables under the sea. The maritime economy alone would represent 1.5 trillion dollars and the OECD forecasts growth of up to 3 trillion dollars within 10 years. However, even if the media often show flagship projects of cutting-edge technologies such as autonomous ships, deep-sea exploration or even underwater drones, in reality, the maritime economy is very little digitalized.

A real desire for digitalization

While it is true that the maritime sector is today very little digitalized, it is no less true that many public and private players in this sector are working to move things forward. There are vast public data collection programs on marine fauna, oceanography, water temperature, etc.  Additionaly, various programs are sponsored by private actors who equip ships or wind turbines with sensors to analyze their performance, for instance.

Sinay Hub : the platform for marine applications

SINAY is a digital hub dedicated to the maritime players. Indeed, as Ports are logistics hubs where different activities and transactions take place, SINAY is also a hub where several data sources are gathered : Open-Sources data Commercial data like AIS And Private data that are secured in a dedicated and private space. SINAY assembles and analyzes the most relevant data trough tailored modules. Each module solve a major problem to facilitate the management of the maritime activities. Its goal? To enable decision-makers to make the best decisions in real-time to improve their economic and environmental performance.
