Maritime software provider Hanseaticsoft has integrated Microsoft’s Power BI into its fleet management system, Cloud Fleet Manager (CFM), to provide users with better insights into their operational data.
Power BI is a business analytics service offered by Microsoft which allows data from multiple sources to be centrally pooled and analysed. It provides interactive visualisation tools and intelligence capabilities, enabling users to create their own reports and dashboards.
By integrating the technology into CFM, Hanseaticsoft says it will allow customers to process any operational data from the fleet management system within the Microsoft platform. Users can choose from a variety of predefined reports, compile their own reports using an assortment of templates, or create new ones.
“Data is the new gold for ship managers. However, data needs to be managed efficiently and analysed in a structured way so that businesses can clearly interpret it to make insight-driven decisions to achieve their goals and objectives,” said Alexander Buchmann, Managing Director, Hanseaticsoft.
“This exciting integration offers new opportunities for analysis and added value for our clients. With the option to also include data from external sources to create interactive reports, the possibilities are unlimited, giving clients many more options to take advantage of the benefits that data analytics has to offer.”
