Telerik® today announced that its customer Bhagwan Marine, a leader in servicing the oil and gas industry, together with partner, Glenfield Digital Group, has released the first mobile app for offshore energy vessel management. The app, LiveFleet, enables customers to track the company’s vast fleet of marine vessels, offering real-time data access and geolocation capabilities. The app is currently available for download on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Bhagwan Marine wanted to be the first to leverage technology to promote its business in a bold way, setting it apart from industry-standard four-color printed brochures. The company decided to pursue a mobile app that would organize extensive vessel information and specifications, show vessel location in real-time, offer push notifications, pictures and more. It would also help manage Bhagwan Marine’s 700 person workforce, a critical need since 90 percent of staffers work remotely.
“Off-shore energy production is a complex and competitive industry. Companies want real-time information about staff, vessels and resources, in a quick and concise manner,” said Richard Sojka, Managing Director, Glenfield Digital Group. “The service Bhagwan Marine provides to its many customers is unique. It was the first to leverage mobile with its LiveFleet app, which puts it ahead of its competition.”
Telerik was selected as the technology platform of choice. Initially leveraging the Telerik Sitefinity Web Content Management system (WCM), Bhagwan Marine was able to centralize fleet vessel data with a custom module it constructed for the web content management system. It then integrated it with the Telerik Platform and Telerik Kendo UI:
- Telerik AppBuilder and Kendo UI were used to build the app for any platform, including Android and iOS, while also providing a native look and feel
- Telerik Backend Services (Mobile BaaS) provides a central point in the cloud for editing and distributing all content
- Telerik Analytics enables the team to review usage metrics in real-time, so Bhagwan Marine can refine tactics as needed to maximize effectiveness
The app was launched in February 2014, at the Australian Oil and Gas Exhibition, the premiere industry trade show hosting almost 12,000 attendees and 605 exhibitors from 20 countries. The initial feedback has been positive and, according to attendees, the app put Bhagwan Marine on the map as an industry innovator.
“Thanks to Glenfield Digital and Telerik, we can now have our complete fleet information at our fingertips, updated with real time tracking data directly to any mobile device,” said Bhagwan Marine Marketing Manager Matt Syms. “On-the-fly, we can produce print-ready technical vessel specification sheets. This was not possible before we implemented Telerik, and in the end, we’ve saved thousands by doing away with printed materials and brochures.”

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. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

"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.

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 ...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
