Veracity strengthens with new Asia hub
(Posted on 24/09/19)
Veracity, DNV GL’s open industrial data platform, has opened a new base in Singapore with the aim to stimulate closer collaboration in the maritime sector through the sharing of data.
Veracity is DNV GL’s open industrial data platform that enables the secure exchange of data-sets, APIs, applications and insights between industries. By bringing Veracity to Singapore, DNV GL aims to spur on the digitalization of the maritime industry by helping this sector to better leverage the use of data.
“Asia-Pacific is thriving due to a great deal of investment and innovation across industry. By having a local presence in Singapore, we are better equipped to support the maritime industry in particular with its efforts to use data as a resource to increase efficiency,” says Mikkel Skou, Director of Veracity.
The new Veracity office in Singapore will be headed by Magnus Lande, who serves as the Commercial Director for Veracity, with a focus on maritime.
“A broad range of organizations, from shipowners to authorities, need to better leverage available data in their core activities. This could be data owned by the organization or owned data combined with available public or industry data. We will help organizations unlock this potential by facilitating secure data sharing and collaboration between industry players on our data platform and ecosystem,” says Magnus Lande.
For more than 150 years, DNV GL has been a trusted expert and data manager in the analog world, connecting yards, designers, owners, operators, contractors, and authorities. Now we are fulfilling this same role in the digital domain with Veracity, DNV GL's digital platform and industry ecosystem.
