About the content of our 22nd industry guide - Using data to enhance rail and metro operational performance.
The rail and metro network of today typically now has a combination of physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures supported on a mix of legacy and modern platforms. The digitisation of the industry has accelerated these changes and now offers further huge potential to improve rail and metro operational performance. As part of this change, terabytes of raw data are now being generated comprising everything from mission critical data, to maintenance reports and passenger focussed analytics. Amidst a host of advantages that can be offered to operators by mastering these huge quantities of data include the ability to minimize delays and enable efficient incident management, increase capacity utilization, enable intelligent operations, reduce the environmental footprint and develop real-time management of digital and rolling stock assets.
The challenge is being able to access this data, interpret it and make actionable and positive decisions based upon what it says. Rail and metro must focus on the changes that this data brings, which still remains a blind spot for some. Management consulting firm McKinsey calls Big Data; “the next frontier for innovation, competition and productivity.” For rail and metro it can answer questions that were beyond reach in the past and deliver huge value, if harnessed correctly.
To give the industry support in taking advantage of the data revolution, our editorial team are already speaking to senior executives at rail and metro operators around the world for insights into their work with data, and these exclusive features will make up the focus of the guide. But we also have the opportunity to feature a small number contributions from the commercial innovators providing data solutions, products and analysis to metro agencies and rail operators around the world.
