Moving to the Cloud: Benefits of SaaS based Technology in Terminal Operations

About this webinar

Overview

Demand for flexible, efficient and cost effective technology solutions in ports and terminals has never been higher. Terminals are increasingly looking towards new solutions like the cloud and a software as a service (SaaS) model to run their operations.

But why would a port or terminal make a leap to the cloud if on-premises solutions have been in use for many years? Other markets, including the financial sector and airline industry, have already made use of the cloud in their own operations and now it is the turn of the ports and terminals industry to make full use of the technology. Terminal systems in the cloud can offer cost control, easy upgradability, flexibility of use across multiple locations and higher cybersecurity than on premises solutions.

And the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects has brought about a significant shift in working conditions putting increased pressure for remote work and centralized planning, increasing the pace of change and the demand for cloud solutions.

Join Navis and others to learn:

· Why the demand for cloud solutions is growing in the maritime industry

· How an on-premise solutions can be transferred to the cloud and the benefits that can bring

· Best practices in managing cloud operations for security and reliability
