Operaciones Portuarias Canarias, S.A. (OPSCA), the terminal operator in the Port of Las Palmas, Spain, has successfully transitioned to the Navis N4 TOS and gone live with DSP DATAVIEW, an analytics tool from leaders in industrial IT solutions DSP, as it looks to accelerate its operational transformation.
According to a statement from DSP, the transition has three main objectives for OPSCA – to improve the efficiency of local operations, initiate the modernization process and increase productivity.
The trends in container terminal automation will be discussed at length at CTAC19
DSP DATAVIEW, a data analytics tool based on Microsoft SQL Reporting Services, will gather all operational data through the native N4 interfaces and connect to the Navis N4 production replica database.
A recent Port Technology technical paper by Oscar Pernia, TiL, looked at the trends in container terminal automation
The subsequent reports will be based on a multidimensional database designed by DSP for data mining and reporting.
Marco Fehmer, CEO of DSP, had this to say on the announcement and DATAVIEW’s capabilities: “We are really proud of DATAVIEW. It was born from experience on operations with the idea to provide a friendly and quick solution to terminal planners and managers, struggling to analyze their data and use them as decision support enablers.
“DATAVIEW is complementary to N4 as it’s capable to generate complex reports of aggregated data, with key performance indexes customized for their specific needs.”
Captain Jan Nowak, CEO, OPSCA Las Palmas, said this: “We are extremely satisfied with DATAVIEW and with the professional support received by DSP on this project. We felt talking with pairs, not only with a technology solution provider but with terminal operations experts that could actually bring value in the definition of our reports and KPIs.”
