Lloyd's Register Selects QiO to Accelerate Industry 4.0 Adoption


Navigating Digital Transformation in the Marine Industry

London, December 22, 2016– QiO, a fast growing Industry 4.0 software company, today announced a strategic partnership agreement with Lloyd’s Register to help transform how the Marine industry uses advanced, big-data analytics, running in the cloud to improve operational effectiveness and reduce risk.

Lloyd’s Register (LR) is a global engineering, technical and business services organisation wholly owned by the Lloyd’s Register Foundation, a UK charity dedicated to research and education in science and engineering. Founded in 1760 as a marine classification society, LR now operates across many industry sectors, with over 8,000 employees based in 78 countries.

As part of a broad, strategic initiative to support the digital transformation of the Marine industry, LR decided to partner with QiO based on the company’s NAUTILIAN™ platform, which provides LR’s clients the ability to deploy cost-efficient, cloud-neutral solutions that will help extract insights from data while maintaining absolute sovereignty over it.

“QiO gives our clients an open platform to leverage the wealth of data they collect while ensuring the ownership they demand”, says Nial McCollam, Chief Technology Officer for Lloyd’s Register. “With QiO, we can deploy cloud-native applications, at speed, for the Marine industry that were previously unavailable.”

QiO, which was founded in 2015, has quickly attracted a marquee roster of clients in the Aerospace, Marine, Oil & Gas and Manufacturing markets. The company, based in the U.K., is growing quickly and has operations in Germany, the United States, and India.

“Lloyd’s Register is one of the most respected and accomplished organisations in the world.”, said Baz Khuti, CEO for QiO. “We are thrilled that through this partnership and our NAUTILIAN™ platform, LR will be well positioned to deliver value to its clients in the new Industry 4.0 economy”.
