Kongsberg Maritimes's OEM agreement to embed Attunity replication technology as part of its new Information Management System (K-IMS) enables a solution projected ot deploy across thousands of vessels worldwide.

As a critical part of the K-IMS solution, the Attunity technology enables real-time information availability between Microsoft SQL Server for Embedded Systems on the offshore and onshore systems.

K-IMS is a solution designed to maximize performance, serving the oil and gas, offshore and maritime markets. It enables situational awareness by collecting data from systems and sensors onboard, combining them with operational knowledge, and providing them in the right format to fleet management offices and/or suppliers' support systems. Windows Server for Embedded Systems provides the platform while Attunity data replication software enables the real-time and efficient flow of data over wide area network (WAN) and satellite connections between offshore and onshore K-IMS systems, with high performance and low cost of ownership.

"K-IMS is a global platform designed to provide the full picture of an ongoing, seafaring operation in real time, which is essential for safety, troubleshooting and decision making," said Jon Fredrik Lehn-Pedersen, Vice President Drilling and Advanced Vessels at Kongsberg Maritime. "Having the right technology and the right partners were vital elements for us in building such a complex and mission-critical solution. Attunity's Microsoft-based solution delivered the high performance, reliability and cost efficiency we needed to make K-IMS a success."

"This OEM agreement is a result of our work with Microsoft and the high-performance technology we created for real-time data replication," stated Shimon Alon, Chairman and CEO of Attunity. "We are proud to be part of such a large-scale solution for the global maritime industry and expect this agreement to generate material revenue for us over the next few years as the solution is deployed across the globe. This agreement strengthens Attunity's position as a trusted leader in data replication and is an example of how we envision expanding our portfolio leveraging Microsoft technologies
