Management consulting firm McKinsey calls Big Data ‘the next frontier for innovation, competition and productivity’ and the rail industry is now, in its own way, committed to exploring its full potential. Today’s rail and metro network typically has a combination of physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures supported on a mix of legacy and modern platforms. The digitisation of the industry we’ve seen over the past decade has accelerated these changes and offers huge potential to improve rail and metro operational performance. The challenge is being able to access this data, interpret it and make actionable and positive decisions based upon what it tells us. So to further help the industry take advantage of the data revolution we have spoken to leading experts and practitioners from around the world from both rail and metro operators, key consultants and solutions providers.
And the result is the 22nd digital guide in our series - Using Data to Enhance Rail and Metro Operational Performance – and we’d like to invite you to download it today to give you the crucial intelligence you need to develop your abilities in this area.
