Oslo, UK – 3 June 2015: iOra’s Bob Legg is speaking at the Maritime CIO Conference in Oslo on 3 June 2015. Bob will be talking about the challenges of deploying collaboration and cloud software over satellite links that fail at sea as well as the technology that is being developed to solve this critical communications challenge. The one-day Maritime CIO Conference is part of Nor-Shipping, the world’s leading maritime event week, which is now celebrating its 50th anniversary. iOra is taking part for the first time and has become a Platinum Partner for the event.

The conference will be addressing major challenges that the shipping industry is facing right now covering topics such as how to turn big data into big value, Collaborating Across Distributed Teams and Supply Chains, and how to future proof your IT infrastructure to name a few.

Philip Wye, iOra’s Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“iOra attended the previous Nor-Shipping and the Maritime CIO Conference in 2013, as delegates, and we were most impressed at the size of the event and the calibre of the speakers; we realised that we needed to be part of this massively relevant event in future and that is why we are the Platinum Partner this year.”

iOra’s presentation is focussed on collaboration across offshore supply chains and will be demonstrating how key companies in the industry have solved their communications issues despite poor or failing networks whilst maximising their satellite links.

Bob Legg, iOra’s Business Manager for Offshore Markets added:

“Maintaining consistent communications using collaboration and cloud solutions between ship and shore can prove challenging, yet is vitally important for maritime organisations to work effectively and improve ship communications.

“iOra’s unique data replication solution enables operators to deliver content in the most cost-effective way enhancing sharing across the enterprise. As a result, they can implement more data-intensive systems on their ships and also significantly reduce the costs of transferring documents using satellite communications.”
