Information is Beautiful.

Here is an incredible visualisation tool of global shipping traffic! is an interactive map, created by Kiln (a data visualisation and digital journalism studio based in London), using data from the UCL Energy Institute. It is based on hundreds of millions of data points from throughout 2012 and shows the movements of global merchant fleet on a bathymetric map.
The project’s aim is to highlight for broad audience the extraordinary scale of modern commercial shipping, the routes these huge vessels take around the world, the geographic spread of different types of cargo boats, and the amount of carbon dioxide they produce.

"Are you and your team ready to work from home?"

At OSE Engineering working from home is nothing new for us but with COVID-19 being declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, it is rapidly becoming the new norm for most.

Coronavirus or not, working from home can benefit employers as much as employees. Since its creation in 2014, all OSE Engineering’ employees work remotely every day. This requires daily discipline, focus and commitment, but it also provides great opportunities to connect with some of our core values, like family, while still providing high quality service to our clients. We managed to create a work culture at home, that represents us and the culture of OSE Engineering.

Do you want to get the most out of it? Not sure how to manage it properly?
If you are just starting, here are a few tips and best practices from the Harvard Business Review.

"To Be More Data Driven, Look for the Right Business Partner."

Data has become central to how we run our businesses today. But developing the necessary expertise in-house to implement data-driven solutions and enhance your business decisions is a hard thing to do. This is where a strategic partner can help ; it can fill the gaps required to drive your digital transformation initiatives.
Mario Harik recently published an article in the Harvard Business Review that highlights the importance for established companies to pool resources and build partnerships with small tech startups : “When large companies partner with startups, both parties benefit - the small firms gain exposure and clout, and the large firms get access to emerging technologies.”

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.

    Digitalization in the Maritime Industry.

    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.

    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!
