Data Exchange Platform - VIO

Data is the building block for today’s world. As businesses evolve to keep pace with shifting industries, we must rely on increasing amounts of accurate and timely data to make fast, smart decisions. The primary function of a data warehouse is the ability to receive data from multiple sources and in various formats, classify and categorize the data for easy and fast retrieval through some means, namely APIs.

In order for data to be meaningful and easily accessible, data must be categorized, indexed and stored with metadata. Data retrieval and sharing functionality enables data to interact across products and platforms and thereby capturing the true value of data. Data warehouse is a clear, integrated representation of a non-volatile collection of both historical and current data. Analysis of this data helps organizations make informed decisions.

Alpha Ori’s newly launched Data Exchange Platform, VIO (pronounced “Vaayo”) is a secure data platform that enables the exchange of maritime data for reporting & analytics across products and applications. VIO allows the ingestion and curation of data from various sources like SMARTShip, Ship ERP, Class Registry, 3rd party systems, etc. VIO enables data-driven business decisions and innovation through secure data exchange with other products/ platforms.
In short, AOT’s VIO with its subject oriented attributes provides a reliable and scalable platform for data pipeline, data orchestration, data curation and data warehousing.
