SRO set to launch software migration tool

SRO is to launch a new SDU (SRO Dynamic Upgrader) for customers wishing to migrate from competing maritime software systems, such as AMOS, SIS, Ulysses and IFS, to SRO’s own Maximo for Maritime application.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Maximo is based on IBM technology, targeted for use as an asset management system in various industries outside the shipping sector. The SMM (SRO Maximo for Maritime) system is the marine-focused version of the application.

“(The) shifting focus and demand for more extensive system capability has enabled us to invest in further developing our SDU technology to seamlessly migrate existing marine asset management systems to Maximo,” said Tony Lackey, SRO’s technical director.

“The SDU for Marine will minimise any ‘downtime to vessels’ during the cut-over period, allowing for a quick and low impact transfer to Maximo.”

The template used for the software allows implementation to be completed with minimal additional  training requirements for on board staff, as well as providing all the base reports, configuration and KPIs required to begin work with the application.

Underpinning the migration process is the SDU technology which enables the use of ‘live’ data throughout the migration process, including system testing, training and cutover.

SRO says that this de-risks the changeover process by enabling multiple system versions, or different systems, to continue operating in real-time with ‘live’ data without service interruptions.

The company has recently concluded its proof of concept for its SDU for Marine and SMM and says it is now developing the system for launch at the start of 2016.{/mprestriction}
