Ship Data Center Co., Ltd. is a wholly owned subsidiary of international classification society ClassNK (Nippon Kaiji Kyokai) and was founded in December 2015.

Although the collection of large amounts of diverse data onboard vessels during navigation has become possible through the development of information transmission technology, the collection and analysis process is currently being carried out individually, and the use of big data is still in development. While the integration of individually managed data is necessary for further data utilization, it is not necessarily an easy task due to problems such as high costs and security concerns. To address these kinds of challenges that the industry is facing, we, as a foundation for the big data of ships, operate our data center for the accumulation and storage of operational data and offer it to users with sufficient security. We strive to provide an environment in which unitarily managed data can be used at a low cost and maximize opportunities for big data utilization throughout the entire maritime industry.
