About Digital Transformation, People and Technology.

Why is digital transformation more about people than it is about digital technology? Read below to find out more!

Digital transfomration requires organizational changes that are customer-centric, backed by leadership, driven by radical challenges to corporate culture, and the leveraging of technologies that empower and enable employees.

Current studies clearly show the importance of managing people and organizational issues in digital transformations. Organizational change management is considered to be a critical success factor for any digital transformation program and relies on four aspects: aligning leadership (e.g., digital vision and strategy), mobilizing the organization (e.g., communication, digital workplace and culture), building capabilities (e.g., digital skills), and ensuring sustainability (e.g., developing talent agility).

The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly taken digital transformation efforts to levels that few anticipated up until last year and gave companies a massive push toward digital transformation.
But let’s keep in mind that technology doesn't solve business problems. People do!

The European Union proposes an ambitious reduction of emissions.

As part of the European Green Deal, the European Commission presented last week a new plan to reduce the EU’s CO2 emissions of at least 55% by 2030 from 1990 levels, compared with the existing target of 40%.

The updated 2030 target aims to put the EU in line with its commitments under the Paris Agreement and the broader objective of becoming the first “climate neutral” continent in the world by 2050.

These goals are ambitious. Implementing such a significant reduction in emissions in less than 10 years will not be easy, in particular in the transport sector. The developpement and deployment of electric vehicles, advanced biofuels, and other renewable fuels needs to be scaled up to meet these goals.

To be continued then…

Another fascinating dataset of mobility information available in open access!

Apple makes mobility data available to everybody and recently released a mobility data trends tool from Apple Maps to support research and policymaking to fight the Coronavirus pandemic.
This mobility data may provide helpful insights to local governments and health authorities and may also be used as a foundation for new public policies by showing the change in volume of people driving, walking or taking public transit in their communities.

Apple’s mobility trend reports are based on aggregated navigation data from Apple Maps and show how human mobility has changed in major cities and 63 countries or regions worldwide since January 2020.
The information is generated by counting the number of requests made to Apple Maps for directions, according to three forms of mobility: driving, walking and public transport.

The reports allow for an open and inclusive access to anyone interested in conducting research on mobility trends using the publicly available data.

Import the dataset and take a look at it!

New Regulations for Automated Driving.

On June 25th 2020, more than 50 countries, including Japan, South Korea, the EU member states and some countries in Africa, have agreed common regulations for automated vehicles.
The measures were adopted by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and will come into force in January 2021.

Here are some key points of the new regulations:

  • The Automated Lane Keeping Systems (ALKS) can only be activated on roads that have physical separation between both directions of travel, where pedestrians and cyclists are prohibited and where speed is limited to 60 kph.
  • The regulations also require vehicles to be equipped with a Data Storage System for Automated Driving (“black box”) which will record when ALKS are activated.
  • Screens for any activities other than driving are automatically switched off as soon as the driver resumes control.
  • Car manufacturers must also introduce Driver Availability Recognition Systems, which monitor the driver's capability to take back control of the vehicle, including through spotting eye blinking and closure.
  • ALKS will also need to comply with cyber-security and software update requirements.

  • This is a major step towards a wider and safe deployment of automated vehicles in traffic.

    Big Data on Air Quality at Street Level.

    Most routine air pollution measurements are collected at a city or even country-wide scale. Our understanding of how pollution varies at a smaller scale is therefore quite limited.
    Google and Aclima, an environmental sensor company, demonstrated a new approach to filling this data gap and provided a dataset of air pollution at street level in California. It is now being scaled up to other cities around the world. Keep an eye on it!

    Most routine air pollution measurements are collected at a city or even country-wide scale. Our understanding of how pollution varies at a smaller scale is therefore quite limited.

    Google and Aclima, an environmental sensor company, demonstrated a new approach to filling this data gap, by using specially equipped Google Street View cars to map urban air pollution every 30 meters, at 100,000× higher spatial resolution than possible with official monitors. These measurements can provide cities with new neighbourhood-level insights to help cities accelerate efforts in their transition to smarter, healthier cities.

    The dataset is the result of a 4-year measurements campaign. It was collected in Californian streets, including in Los Angeles and San Francisco, providing one of the largest data sets of air pollution ever measured of single city streets. It includes more than 42 million measurements of carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides, ozone, and particulate matter.

    The dataset is now available for free to the science community here.

    It is now being scaled up to other cities around the world. Keep an eye on it!

    Alternative Fuels for Greener Shipping.

    Decarbonisation of the shipping industry is necessary. International shipping accounts for 2.4% of global grennhouse gas emissions and, as heavy fuel oil remains the primary fuel source in the shipping industry, it also releases large levels of pollutants such as sulphur oxides.
    A research team from the University of Southampton (UK) recently conducted an interesting comparison study of several alternative fuels and potential technologies for the application of long distance international shipping...

    Using data from an LNG tanker, researchers from the University of Southampton (UK) approximated the energy required for a typical single voyage and estimated the required volume, mass and variable cost for several fuel types.

    They showed that both hydrogen (H2) and ammonia (NH3) have the potential to be solutions for the decarbonisation of long distance shipping. However they also highlighted a number of key engineering challenges that need to be addressed before either option can be considered viable.

    Discover more about this study in this video, recorded during the International Conference organised by The Royal Institution of Naval Architects on "LNG/LGP and Alternative Fuel Ships", 29th-30th January 2020, RINA HQ, London, UK.

    OSE Engineering and the Challenges of Digital Transformation.

    Most companies and executives know how crucial it is to evolve with technology and create digital processes and solutions. But this usually isn't a straightforward process.
    Discover how OSE Engineering can help your digital tranformation!

    Digital transformation has the potential to help your business meet your objectives and perform more effectively, but it can be unsuccessful without a strong strategy with scope and objectives.

    We identified two critical steps that often lead digital transformation initiatives to failure.

    Challenge 1: Getting a clear vision of your digital transformation model.

    Without a clear understanding of the goal and the means to the end, it’s difficult to ensure that all elements of the business are on the same page.
    So before investing, define and articulate not only the opportunity but also the problem it solves, and how the company will build the organisation around the desired solution.

    Challenge 2: Overcoming the lack of resource availability.

    Digital transformation requires a careful approach and having a novice or inefficient team will make the job difficult during the transition phase.
    Thus, invest in digital talent and build a pool of talents with strong prowess on technology and solutions. Have a clear plan for the resources available and look outside to close gaps! Develop your network with academic research institutions and start-ups in innovation clusters.

    OSE Engineering can guide your digital transformation journey.

    At OSE Engineering we strongly believe that innovation must be ubiquitous not left to the responsibility of a single department. As Cynthia Stoddard, senior vice president and CIO at Adobe, said “Innovation should be part of the company’s culture”. And that’s still true when it comes to digital transformation. Our mission is to help your digital transformation to happen seamlessly. We are committed to help you identify the most valuable use-cases and help you promote the associated benefits to get your teams and management on board. We enjoy working closely with the engineering teams to understand your business needs and requirements, and we continuously strive to figure out what will work the best for you in order to avoid the hurdles on your path toward digital transformation.
    Don’t let the challenges your business faces in our digital world become insurmountable. Instead, face them, find innovative solutions to your problems and fuel success for years to come.

    OSE Engineering is there to help you in that journey!

    How to use Artificial Intelligence to gain Business Value?

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming many companies and creates completely new types of businesses. But how to gain business value from AI?
    At OSE Engineering, we strongly believe that AI has the potential to transform every business and bring it to another level.
    Read more and discover a 4-step process towards integrating AI into full solutions that match your specific business rationale.

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming many companies and creates completely new types of businesses. But how to gain business value from AI?
    Information technology is no longer just about process automation and codifying business logic. Insights are the new currency. Yet it is the speed with which we can scale and share those insights that is becoming a competitive advantage in more and more businesses.
    Businesses that do not capitalize on the transformative power of AI risk being left behind and that is why every single company, department and team need an explicit AI strategy. At OSE Engineering, we strongly believe that AI has the potential to transform every business and bring it to another level. We don’t think AI is going to replace human. But it will supplement us in a way never seen before, allowing us to focus on higher level work.

    Here we share a 4-step process towards integrating AI into full solutions that match your specific business rationale.

  • STEP 1: Identify the business priorities that can gain the most from AI.

  • The key challenge is to make sure your AI projects are aligned with your organization’s business strategy and will solve specific business priorities. It is vital not to become too entranced by a given technology, as if that technology by itself was the answer.
    Think first in terms of types of work. Then, consider the business rationale for integrating AI technologies into a fully integrated product that helps this work.
    To succeed, develop a close collaboration between AI engineers and business analysts as this will help the AI team tie their models to important business priorities through the right KPIs.

  • STEP 2: Provide explanations for your AI model predictions.

  • The ability to build confidence in AI models that customers can rely on for performance and security is a key challenge.
    Your business users are more likely to take action on your AI model predictions if they trust the model and if it provides intuitive explanations for its predictions.
    The key is to roll AI out gently and openly. To improve transparency, build time into your plan to provide explanations globally and localy. Inform about the model’s key drivers and the strongest predictors. Prepare dashboards, visualizations of information flow within models and other displays according to your users’ needs.

  • STEP 3: Upskill your exiting employees with basics of data science and statistics.

  • Accessing AI skills can be a real challenge for many organizations. Therefore, this step is about reviewing your in-house AI skills and capabilities, and working out where you need a skills injection.
    The changes in your business models as part of your overall AI strategy will also need to be reflected in your organisational structure. As there might be a shortage of AI engineers, think to upskill your existing employees and take advantage of a new generation of products that simplify AI model development.
    One of the keys is to use the right combination of business analysts working closely with AI engineers and data engineers.

  • STEP 4: Keep an eye on the big picture.

  • Companies building out their AI services practice should also embrace the way the technology is changing the IT world around them.
    AI will deliver value businesses in the form of customer engagement, workforce empowerment and business optimization. But in order to succeed, AI needs to be associated with technological advancements, such as developments in the cloud platforms, mobile applications, dashboard reporting, IoT and connected devices.


    For business leaders, it is imperative to get a plan for making AI work in the organization as the risk of businesses becoming non-competitive by ignoring AI is high.

    At OSE Engineering, we believe in digitalization in the maritime industry.
    This is why we have been building strong partnerships with actors of the maritime industry and support them in their digital growth.

    Digitalization in the Maritime Industry

    Digitalization is becoming ubiquitous in more and more industries every day. Companies operating in the maritime industry are now ready to jump on board and embrace the benefits brought by the innovations that made other sectors more efficient, robust and safe. Yet there are many insecurities and concerns about the genuine value of the data available and the overwhelming number of solutions on the market. Decision makers need to be supported in order to understand which technology and partner will suit their business best and bring a value that goes beyond the buzz words used in marketing material.

    2019 state of play

    The maritime and offshore businesses are traditionally not the most obvious sectors one would relate to digital innovations. Innovators have thus been slow to propose and deploy digital solutions to cope with the maritime industry inefficiencies, overcapacity and difficulty to build long lasting competitive advantage in a very homogeneous market. This untapped potential has recently attracted many new players, helped by the low entry capital requirements when deploying existing technology into a new sector. In fact, the number of digital solutions for the maritime and offshore industry now reaches several hundred different software and tools available on the market. Within the incumbents there is also a strong group of early adopters who are already taking on the challenge and have started to use digital innovations as part of their solutions to improve their competitiveness. This is becoming even more critical as new environmental regulations are coming into play with the potential to redistribute the cards between the different actors.

    Our manifesto

    Established companies are being challenged like never before, yet, at OSE Engineering, we firmly believe that they have an advantage that goes way beyond the brand reputation: they own the know-how that will enable to create long term value. Copy pasting a solution from another industry rarely live up to the promise. This is why we have been building strong partnerships with actors of the maritime industry and support them in their digital growth. Rather than trying to sell them off-the-shelf products, we take the time to design with them a tailored solution that answers all the specificity of their problem or function as an enabler for their own unique business model. Enhanced operational safety and efficiency, increased revenue sustainability and new revenue opportunities are just around the corner for those who will join the wave.

    We believe in concentrated solar power technology.

    French utility EDF Renewables has just won tender to build 800 MW solar plant in Morocco. The new plant will combine concentrated solar power and photovoltaic technologies to produce 800 MW of renewable energy, with a storage capacity of 5 hours.
    At OSE Engineering we welcome these news as we strongly believe in the concentrated solar power technology as one of the most promising value-creation opportunities in desert areas. Since 2015 we work in partnership with the French laboratory CNRS-PROMES at the Themis solar power plant on concentrated solar irradiation.

    Welcome to easier Machine Learning.

    If you believe in Artificial Intelligence (AI) as much as we do, you will not have missed that last March Google released a new version of their popular yet powerful TensorFlow library. Call it TensorFlow 2.0.

    TensorFlow core strength has always been its performance and its great scalability to take models from research to production. However, one should also admit that, as powerful as it was, it could only be mastered by few.

    Well, this is over as TensorFlow 2.0 shifts its focus to “uncompromising usability”.

    In its latest version, TensorFlow high level API removes all the frictions that previously existed while still maintaining the great performance and scalability that made its success. There is now an easy-to-use and consistent API to democratize AI. People are empowered to join in the revolution that is spreading across all industries. That is great news.

    It is a radical makeover and clean-up which will have major ripple effects through the industry. For beginners, it makes machine learning more accessible than ever. The entry cost in time and budget will considerably drop when it comes to demonstrate the benefits that AI can bring into your daily activities. For those already using TensorFlow, the new version will streamline and speed up the development of the next iteration of your AI products.

    At OSE Engineering we welcome this update as it will allow us to bring your projects to fruition faster to let you do higher-level work and create.

    The game just got easier. Now’s the right time to dive in!
