HMM has announced that it is adopting
Cloud-based next-generation system.
Cloud system is an information technology
that is actively embraced in various industries, but concerns persisted as to
various risks such as data security and leakage.

security, stability and cost-saving effects of Cloud system compared to

data center, and resources – Cloud adoption has been gradually increasing among
various global corporations.
of the greatest advantages of Cloud system is that it provides swift and stable
information technology services and environment to all users of the system.
HMM aims for full and maximized adoption
of the Cloud system by 2020 and expects to upgrade the level of internal and
external customers’ satisfaction through improved speed and stability of the
service. It also expects to see a great efficiency in information technology
expense that it uses.
Furthermore, adoption of Cloud system will
provide easier application of new technology such as blockchain, Internet of
Things (IoT) and other crucial Fourth Industrial Revolution related
Amazon, Microsoft, and Google are some of
the global corporates providing Cloud services and HMM plans to select one of
the Cloud service providers after a thorough review.
HMM’s next-generation system and
technology consultant, EY Consulting commented “This IT revolution will be
HMM’s driving force to be one of the world’s top competitive carriers, and it
will become a role model in Shipping/Logistics IT revolution and digitization.”
