“OHQ Cloud enables us to meet our international obligations and has been well received by vessel registration customers and seafarers. The team at Oceans HQ kindly migrated our data from our old system into the cloud and went above and beyond to support us with going live. Transitioning from a locally installed version of FMS to OHQ Cloud has also enabled us to access information in real-time from anywhere in the world.

The Virgin Islands suffered two devastating hurricanes in 2017 and we were fortunate to have saved our historical records from our old systems. It took some time to get fully operational again but Oceans HQ provided invaluable assistance and support to analyse the data and transform it into OHQ Cloud.

I now have total confidence in Oceans HQ, and if another such event happened in the future, we will be fully operational again with data and records fully accessible as soon as local power is back.”

Move Data Securely, Quickly and with Precision Accuracy

By leveraging industry-leading open source tools, Oceans Voyager can connect to any data source, pull in the data, map key attributes, transform values and load your valuable data directly into OHQ Cloud.

Oceans Voyager Process
  • Extraction: Data Collection

    Depending on your existing data format(s) and location(s), Voyager can either connect directly into your infrastructure, or you can provide snapshots for Voyager to consume locally. If connecting to an RDBMS, whitelist Voyager through your firewall to connect in read-only mode, or provide a dump file and Voyager can create a mirror within OHQ Cloud.

  • Preparation: Data Modeling

    With pre-configured data models for the most common formats including FMS, Spreadsheet and XML, your data can be automatically loaded into Voyager with minimal manual invervention. For the attributes that are unique to your datasets, these models are mapped in by our data analysts using a refined 'Plan-Do-Check-Act' framework.

  • Transformation: Semantic Layer

    As with every data model, naming conventions and nomenclature may be unique, therefore the semantic layer of the transform process maps legacy values to those in Oceans Cloud. This part of the process is lead by our data analysts in conjunction with your staff or previous developers.

Then we add the secret sauce resulting in seamless data migration

This part of the process is where most migration projects hit a bump in the road. However with Oceans Voyager, maritime experts support every stage of the process to embed business logic and knowledge to create a seamless data migration experience.

  • Transformation: Maritime Review

    Maritime experts work within the team to review the work in conjunction with our data analysts and software developers. This ensures transformations are accurate when it relates to maritime and business requirements.

  • Transformation: Validation

    Native to OHQ Cloud are a range of industry-specific validations running constantly in the background to check entered data against associated convention requirements. The validation step in Voyager makes sure any data not meeting the minimum validation requirements are easily identified for remediation.

  • Loading: Instant Access to Data

    With a seamless integration with OHQ Cloud, the final step in the Voyager flow is to load the data ready for you to use. At every step of the process, a robust data governance framework remains in place to ensure that high data quality exists throughout the complete lifecycle and extends to data availability, usability, consistency, integrity and security.
