Jade Completes Third Successful Implementation at Diversified Port Holdings

Streamlined Processes Achieves Record Implementation Time Driving Greater Efficiency for Customers

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jade Software today announced that it was past the half way mark of a five port implementation of its Jade Master Terminal software in the United States. The successful implementation of Jade Master Terminal in Mobile, Alabama is the third of five planned Diversified Port Holdings (DPH) sites and follows successful implementations in Jacksonville and Fort Lauderdale.

DPH, an integrated ports logistics business, selected Jade Master Terminal to operate its five shipping terminals in the south-eastern United States. In particular DPH required Jade's expertise in solving the complex problem of managing high volumes of disparate cargo, especially in Mobile where the port operation handles a mix of cargo including steel commodities and frozen produce.

The installation was completed in the record time of six weeks, well ahead of schedule. DPH is now enjoying the benefits the Jade Master Terminal system brings to its operation and the port plans to extend the functionality to other areas of its business.

Impressed with the overall implementation, Dennis Rhodes, CIO at DPH said, "Working with Jade gave us confidence that the implementation would deliver us the operational efficiencies we were looking to gain in our business. Jade's flexibility and training enabled our staff to adapt quickly to the new technology." David Lindsay, Jade's Managing Director commented that the ability to implement Jade Master Terminal in less than three months realised significant value for ports, reducing their costs. 

"Successful implementations in these timeframes are unheard of in the industry and make the selection of Jade Master Terminal even more compelling for mixed cargo terminals," said David.

The next implementation of Jade Master Terminal at DPH will be in New Orleans, scheduled for mid-April 2014.

Jade Master Terminal is one of the world's fastest growing terminal operating systems, having been implemented in Norway, Italy, UAE, USA, Iraq, Brazil, Ghana, Australia and New Zealand. It solves the complex problem of managing high volumes of disparate cargo. A highly reliable system that maximises operational efficiency and improves competitiveness, the Jade Master Terminal product provides its customers with a single integrated view of their operations leading to increased productivity throughout the port. Rapid implementation makes Jade Master Terminal the perfect fit for growing and ambitious ports.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg.

Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands.
