The Mutiny Appy

As a Captain on me ship The Moria (my first ship Lady Soria was tragically lost during a mutiny, fuck’en ol’ crew) I found the need to prevent further incidents. Arrrr!

An App (handy while sword fighting) to manage how to split the loot so the my crew, the Bastards, will be happy and serve me loyally and eagerly is what I will make.

Built on stolen tech, open pirate intelligence, and brut forcing powerapps I will control the pirate hierarchy and move my mates up only when necessary.

Our hierarchy consist of:
Captain (only ME)
First Mate

The app will also provide essential tools and games for my crew in order to keep them happy and informed during pirating. It will guide them through adult virtual entertainment and show them the way to the next rum bar.

Data model

Pirates Enterprise Resource Planning (PERP)

PERP is an ERP system(s) made easier for Pirates and for the mass. An ERP system helps pirates manage their business processes by integrating various functional areas, such as finance, human resources, and supply chain management, into a single system. also provide a centralized view of all the data and processes involved in running a business, so that pirates can make more informed decisions and operate and loot more efficiently.

An typical ERP system includes modules for accounting, finance, purchasing, inventory management, sales, and customer relationship management, and by integrating all these functions, an ERP system provides a view of a pirates’ operations, making it easier for captains to track performance, make decisions, and respond to changes in the business environment.

But hey, this not your usual ERP, this is a PERP, meaning that this will include other characteristics that are related to the pirate business. Such as a looting management system, tracking devices, systems and reports.

ERP implementation can be a complex and time-consuming process, but the benefits of improved efficiency, reduced manual labor, and enhanced data accuracy can be significant.

As part of our solution presentation, this PERP system will have focus on 4 pillars:

  • AI
  • Sustainability
  • User Experience
  • Scalability and integration

The PERP will initially include the following sub systems:

  • Pirate Fleet Management (PFM)

PFM is the management of pirates vehicles fleet. It involves the coordination and management of all activities related to vehicles, including enlisting, licensing, deployment (for looting), tracking, and drivers management. The goal is to ensure the efficient and cost-effective operation of the pirates vehicles, while maximizing productivity and minimizing deployment time. This may involve implementing processes for vehicle enlisting using AI to make it easier and better user experience!

  • Pirate Resource Management (PRM)

PRM will help in managing the various tasks and processes involved in pirates. The system helps in automating and streamlining pirates’ processes, such as recruiting, onboarding and performance management. The goal is to increase efficiency and reduce manual labor, as well as provide a single source of truth for employee data and records.

  • Pirate Reporting System (PRS)

A pirates life is rough but to make it easier we will create an app which will cover different reporting needs such as live location reporting av ships and their locations, inventory stats, pirate statistics to be able to make training more specific for each pirate, reporting on how our predictive models are performing in terms of accuracy, but also the results of our predictive models to be able to visually see which ships and areas would be best to attack, weather data reports & ship stats to mention a few.

  • Looting Management System (LMS)

This is not your usual components/systems you find under any ERP. but for the sake of the pirates, the need for and AI infused Loot or not is important. This will help pirates to manage loot cases and support requests, including loot management, loot knowledge management, and (maybe) live chat.

Initial data model:

The orange bandits ideas drawing board:

The Basic Idea

We will be implementing PRMS (Pirate Raid Management System) in which we will fetch data from NAIS – a service providing ship type and positioning in real-time, in order to determine what ships to plunder. The ship data will be fetched and stored in Dynamics 365 as leads and from there we will qualify the ones looking most interesting with regards to a risk analysis done by Sales Accelerator.

Leads with high value and low risk will be qualified to opportunities (Targets) and from there our sleazy sales pirates will contact the pirate kings in the desired area to sell them this plunder target. Where will be sent a contract to sign and we will demand a deposit up front. When the pirate king has organized and performed a raid, we will take 25% of the loot.

In addition to PRMS, we will offer our pirates a Pirate Assistance app developed using PowerApps. This will guide the pirates to the correct ships in heavily trafficated Norwegian fjords.

In case of meeting a mermaid a pirate might choose to use his Rumglasses feature where an AI will help him detect if the mermaid is real or a manatee through image recognition. This might spare a drunk bastard for ages of humiliation.

For any HMS questions, Pollybot – a pirate’s best friend virtual agent, will make stupid answers to real questions by repeating your question 70% of the time.

With this plan, sketches and business idea we claim the Early Delivery and Show and Tell badge. Ahoy!

The Seven Seas are Even More Dangerous with this Crew Sailing

You and your mates are standing, looking out over your stern you see a ship. This is when you spot an enemy ship! It looks totally out of control. Every hand on deck. And is that a volley ball!? Surely these pirates are more like jokerates… They are ripe for a plunder!

His smooth voice is a thunder cracking the sound of the seven seas

But then, you spot it. The stunning Captain Mats with his firm jaw, talking smooth orders. But even the smooth sound of his smooth voice is a thunder cracking the sound of the seven seas. These are no ordinary pirates. No ordinary buclkeneers. They are Swaggrates, the swaggiest of pirates. They are The Hack Sparrows!

Meet the crew

Hello ACDC! We are pleased to meet you all! We are one of the lucky teams to join from Innovation Norway this years. Meet the team:

Mats, our captain with the chiseled Jaw and an expert in all things backend. He is a fan of the posterior for sure. When not creating the machines of eave that lurks in you server cabinet, he enjoys geting his sea legs moving on the dance floor. You will be surprised by the trick this man can achieve when given enough rum.

Solveig, our lady with a mind as sharp as daggers. Solveig does our AI and is the brain of the bunch. Also she is a 6b+ boulder and knows a thing or two about climbing masts and attaching from above with carefully planned accuracy. She also loves to bake and covers every room she enters with the pleacent cent of vanilla and cinnamon.

Henrik is our silent killer that works in the shadow realm of Office 365. He can create systems that furfill your life or trap you in perpetual torment. He also enjoy using his thunder legs to punt footballs through the horizon.

Tommy, our knower of every arm and resident full-stack. He knows how to choose the right weapon for the right attack, or counter attack. Other Pirates, look out! When not picking the right weapons for the seven seas hi spend his time among the turtles in perfect harmony, diving off the coast and snorkeling when on vacation.

Sebastian, our esthetical eye in the sky and swagger of cloth is responsible for making things pretty. But unknown to many, he deploys deadly tactics such as UX, design psychology and intuitive design to fool you into his traps, stealing all your coin! When not making things pretty he likes to snowboard down mountains, preferably those at edges any of the seven seas.

We are looking forward to work with you all in this tiny ocean that is Sorsalen-konferansesal at Soria Moria! Yarrrr!

Protector of the seas (PoS)

Piracy is a major threat to global trade, and it is crucial to have effective measures in place to detect pirate ships. Satellite images can play a decisive role in this context. With the ability to cover large areas and provide real-time updates, satellite images can provide authorities with the information they need to identify and track pirate ships, even in remote areas. By combining satellite images with other technologies, such as AIS data, a comprehensive system can be established to monitor the world’s oceans and keep them safe from pirate ships.

By using existing data sets, we can train models to recognize ships from satellite images [1]. By comparing the number of ships found on AIS data to the number discovered on satellite images, we can find out how many non-commercial ships are in an area. We then make the assumption that if non-commercial ships are close to commercial ships in an area where the threat is high, potentially dangerous situations may arise.

AIS stands for Automatic Identification System. It’s a technology used on ships and boats to broadcast their location, course, and speed to other ships and shore-side authorities. It helps prevent collisions and makes it easier for ships to navigate in busy shipping lanes.

This model must then be linked to a portal where authorities can receive early warning that they should be paying extra close attention in a certain area.

The distance to the nearest coast guard or military vessel from AIS data can also influence the level of threat.

By combining our custom ML solution with open AI data, we can predict where pirates are located. This allows us to warn shipping companies so they can prepare their ships by taking a different route or fighting against the pirates.

If we have time, we will expand the functionality of the solution by offering alternative pirate-free routes for an additional fee

Early Delivery

Since the beginning of the 17th century, pirates have been terrorizing the seas, pillaging their way around the world. Ships outlive the crew, and captains are forged through raids and adventures on the high seas.

Arrr matey! Ye heard it right, ye scallywags. The days of free-spirited pirating are over! No longer can ye just set sail and hope for the best, searching for a crew as ye go. Nay, now ye need a proper harbor master.

Why, ye may ask? Well, it turns out that finding a crew for a raid these days is harder than finding a needle in a haystack. Or a parrot in a pet shop. Or a pirate with a full set of teeth. Ye get the idea.

So, the pirate ships have come together and decided to appoint a harbor master. This lucky (or unlucky, depending on how ye look at it) soul will be in charge of finding the best of the best, the crème de la crème of pirate crew members. And let’s be honest, with the current job market, it’s not like there’s a shortage of unemployed sailors.

The harbor master will be the one responsible for vetting applicants, making sure they have all their limbs, and that they can swab the deck without falling overboard. A tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.

So, if ye be a pirate in need of a crew, or if ye know a pirate in need of a crew, head on down to the harbor. The harbor master will be waiting, with a bottle of rum in one hand and a list of requirements in the other.

The idea

Every ship has a captain

Every captain has first-hand information about a secret treasure hidden somewhere. The captain decides to schedule a raid/voyage for his ship with a great treasure awaiting💎

To find a crew, the captain has to speak to the local harbor master.

The harbor master begins the process of locating available crew to meet the criteria of the raid/voyage. As a harbor master, he has local information about the best of the best.

The crew gets selected based on skill/availability

The captain signs off on the crew, and the raid can begin!


We will be combining Dataverse, Power Pages, Teams Apps, PCF, SPFX, azure functions etc, etc to spread the technology stack. In a real-world scenario we might limit ourselves to fewer apps, but where is the fun in that?:)

PowerPirates of Axdata make a Pirates day hell of a lot better!

Through our Pirate Satisfaction Questionnaire, one of the things that really stood out was that now when the Awesome Pirate Corp. had implemented Dynamics 365 F&O as their ERP system, the pirates found it really hard to be able to check, complete tasks and update their personal information like bank-account when they are out on the ship and only have their mobile available. In addition to this, it was really hard for them to see where they are planned to be and the Pirate Planners had a hard time to plan where the pirates should be as they did not have the total overview over where another planner had booked the pirate the next weeks.

After reviewing this, the Awesome Pirate Corp. engaged 5 half-geeky, wanted, pirates to help out with this. The 5 PowerPirates went into their house and planned how this could be solved, and came out with this plan:

  • With the F&O as the ERP system and master data source, we need to create a canvas app for all pirates to use and a model driven app for all Pirate Planners to use.
  • Data should flow between al of these and Office 365, as that is a lot more accessible for the pirate on their mobile when they are out on the ships.
  • The Pirate Planners will use the model driven app (that receives the master data for projects and pirates from F&O), to book the different pirates for different ships and tasks, and every planner will have a full overview over what pirate is booked for what in the future.
  • The Pirates will user the canvas app to receive information over where they are booked, have their To-do list to complete tasks assigned to them from F&O, to do updates abut them self, and some other cool and fun things to make the pirate experience even better!
  • Things done by the Pirates in the canvas app will of course update F&O with everything that is needed for the Treasurer and Pirate HR to do their job and send their reports to the P-level management.

This solution will make the every-day a lot easier for everyone in the Awesome Pirate Corp, and combined with the right PowerBI reports, this will give everyone a lot better overview iver everything going on! And, maybe a Power Virtual Agent can give the pirates a lot of the answers they need, without Pirate HR to be involved? We think so 😉

Bouvet Shredders

I årets ACDC event skal vi i Bouvet Shredders fokusere på fiskeoppdrett i Norge. Da skal vi hente ulike data fra sensorer og sende det fra Raspberry PI opp i skyen. Data vil bli behandlet og analysert i skyen og fremstilt på brukervennlig måte til brukeren med hjelp av Power BI. Løsningen kommer til å inneholde mange ulike Azure applikasjoner. Bilde under viser litt hva vi har tenkt til å gjøre..

Blant annet ønsker vi å bruke temperatur, CO2 og motion sensor til å hente relevante data som kan beskrive tilstanden på et fiskeoppdrett. Vi ønsker også å koble til en kamera module til Raspberry PI slik at vi kan implementere Computer Vision (Azure Cognitive Services). Ved hjelp av Object Detection kan vi hente data på hvor mange fisker det i annlegget og hvordan tilstand på fiskene.

Den endelige løsningen er ikke ferdig bestemt, men vi gleder oss til å se hvordan dette prosjektet vil utvikle seg de neste 3 dagene.
