Port of Gijón migrates PMS to cloud with Prodevelop

Gijón migrates its Port Management System to the cloud with Prodevelop and AWS

The Port Authority of Gijón has successfully migrated Posidonia Management, its Port Management System (PMS), to the cloud.

This follows the path marked just over a year ago with the migration of Posidonia PCS to the cloud, in cooperation with software company Prodevelop.

The PMS is a programme for the internal management of the port that aims to facilitate and optimise the administrative aspects involved in the port dynamics, such as invoicing, management of the public domain, technical-nautical services, and so on.

Although the Port Authority already worked with the Prodevelop system, it did so under the on-premise option. By embracing digitalisation, the change to the cloud once again puts the Port of Gijón in the limelight, reported Prodevelop.

Software as a Service (SaaS), is becoming increasingly important within organisations as it generally provides greater control over spending, does not require large investments in infrastructure and allows access from anywhere, as long as there is an internet connection.

Hosting is carried out on AWS, which reportedly guarantees correct operation and high-security standards, which are reinforced by the certifications that Prodevelop provides in this area, such as its ENS medium security certificate or ISO 20000 or 27001.

In this way, the Port Authority of Gijón is transferring all these advantages to its clients and to the port all the advantages of having reliable technological partners, reported Prodevelop.

“The digitisation of ports is mandatory to face the new challenges ahead of us,” says Blanca Girón, Digitalisation and IT Manager at the Port of Gijón.

“After a year working with Posidonia PCS in the cloud and enjoying the advantages it brings us, the next logical step was to do it with Posidonia Management.”

Miguel Montesinos, CEO of Prodevelop, said: “Opting for the implementation of solutions under the SaaS model is a clear indication of the avant-garde character of an organisation, which is capable of understanding and interpreting where the market is heading.”

Earlier this year, Prodevelop won the tender for the evolution and maintenance of the Port Community System (PCS) of the Port Authority of Avilés.

More recently, Prodevelop and EUROGATE Group announced a collaboration to develop a digital twin of processes and equipment.
