WISTA Sri Lanka was able to successfully conclude yet another milestone in the maritime industry by conducting a one day seminar in association with #DataccioConnect on the 29th of March at Galle Face Hotel. The shipping industry has always been traditional in nature, slow to change and conservative in approach. However, it is evident that in today’s world, technology is the only way ahead. This is where, WISTA and #DataccioConnect, came in. These two Associations aimed in helping to bridge the gap between the past and the future in the maritime industry.
WISTA was able to attract many industry professionals, technology experts, solutions providers under one roof & shared real life scenarios across the maritime ecosystems. The key highlight was the discussion on the latest developments & implementations of AI, IoT, Blockchain, Big Data, Cybersecurity, etc. that are causing disruptions in the maritime sphere. During the Conference the audience was exposed to formulating and getting an in depth understanding of digital yardsticks that are available to measure Organizations’ progress towards digitalisation with tasks which are immediately actionable. International Women’s Day was also celebrated during this event by bringing an exclusive segment on ‘Women in Maritime Technology’.
