Spatio-Temporal Business Intelligence for Vessel Builders and Operators [Mini Book]

How to obtain a competitive edge and reach 10x-100x ROI by adding spatio-temporal business intelligence to your ship building, vessel operating, and vessel go-to-market strategies.

The maritime industry is facing a lot of challenges, such as globalization, logistics chain disruptions, fierce competition, zero emission goals, and more. On the flipside, challenges create a need for change and they stimulate people to innovate and invent new technologies that advance efficiency and sustainability.

The generation of data plays a central role in the advancement of new technologies and offers companies a new way to approach and solve those challenges. However, you need to understand what the data is trying to tell you. With a powerful business intelligence tool, data becomes a new language you fluently know how to read and speak.

Business cases for vessel builders, operators, and vessel go-to-market strategies

In this mini book, we will focus on how spatio-temporal data and spatio-temporal analytics will play a core role in the ship building and ship operating innovations in the coming decade. We will discuss the following five business cases to illustrate how to start using spatio-temporal business intelligence to gain a competitive edge.

  • Vessel status monitoring (for operations, engineering) 
  • Vessel activity monitoring (for operations, for commercial) 
  • Global and local fleet monitoring (for operations, for commercial)  
  • Ocean wave analysis (for operations, engineering, for commercial)  
  • Competitive analysis (for operations, for commercial)  
Analyzing the operations of your competitor, including for example looking at the types of vessels, the weather and ocean conditions they are operated in and the frequency and times of operations. In this case looking at operations in offshore wind mill parks such as Belwind.

Of course, more business cases for adding spatio-temporal business intelligence to your organization exist, such as environmental monitoring and analysis, incident analysis, operator training, and many more.

The trend of digitization is in its early stages and will cause a lot more data to be generated over the coming years. An increase in data generation means a need to easily and quickly extract insights out of these vast amounts of valuable information. As we will show in this mini book, the visual analytics platform enables instant and easy insight generation from spatio-temporal data.


Turn data into profit by leveraging the rising tide of data generation.
