MIS is to commence a major upgrade of OCIMF’s Ship Inspection Report Programme (SIRE) on 1st February 2015.

The SIRE system is a vast global database of up-to-date information on tankers and barges, developed and maintained by MIS. Phase one of the 2015 platform upgrade project aims to re-work the existing SIRE system, taking advantage of the latest technologies to provide a robust platform for future development.

Following delivery of phase one in April, phase two will mark the start of changes to the system’s user interface. These changes will consist of preliminary framework changes and the introduction of a new user interface for SIRE vessel operators.

To ensure users will not be inconvenienced as these upgrades take place, when Operators visit the current SIRE system, they will be detected as they log into the system and automatically redirected to the new user interface. The new interface will recreate and enhance existing functionality, providing a modern, complete and innovative system control centre.

SIRE 2015 will be undertaken in an incremental and non-intrusive manner, utilizing the Agile development methodology.

Managing Director of MIS, Dominic McKnight Hardy, commented; “We are excited to be involved with the 2015 platform upgrade project and confident that it will deliver significant security and usability benefits. Furthermore, the upgrade will help in bringing the underlying technologies up-to-date”.
