The Lloyd’s List Intelligence Big Data Award

This award recognizes the significant potential that ‘big data’ has to transform shipping, from timely insights drawn from real-time monitoring and forecasting of events to improved management of performance and risk. We are seeking entries from companies that can demonstrate a tangible example of innovation drawn from big data and applied to the benefit of shipping. The criteria for this award is necessarily wide, but we will be looking for solid projects that can prove measurable results in areas such as: performance monitoring and optimization; condition-based and predictive maintenance; optimization across systems and system overview of operations. This award will be judged by a special panel of industry experts drawn from Lloyd’s List Intelligence.
