“We wanted to move away from existing spreadsheet-based processes to a more sophisticated requirements planning system, which would give us a better view on our fleet and fishing production. To enable the new approach, we needed an underlying computing infrastructure that could stand up to rough conditions and unstable connectivity out on the high seas.

The Lenovo edge servers are easy to deploy and work with, and rugged enough to withstand conditions on the ocean. We can now get a new boat set up with everything—servers, operating system, and virtualization layer—in less than a day.”

A better way to track the catch of the day


At the mercy of ever-changing environmental and biological conditions, wild fishing remains a high-risk, highly uncertain enterprise. Whenever Pesca Azteca’s boats go out, it’s almost impossible to predict the size of the catch they’ll return with. This left Grupo Pinsa reliant on estimates to plan production and delivery, and at elevated risk of discrepancies between anticipated and actual supply—which could be costly to the business.

Sergio Alcaraz Peréz, IT Infrastructure Manager, at Pesca Azteca, gives an example: “Say we planned production of 1,000 cans of tuna, but our boats caught much more than that. We’d only know the true size of the catch once the fleet was back in harbor. It’s not easy to scale up to accommodate the increased supply at such short notice. We also have to find space to store the fresh fish before it’s processed, as well as the end products.
