Seamless connections: using data to drive rail innovation

By leveraging data and digitizing everyday processes, rail can move ahead of other forms of mobility, and become the solution of choice for governments, local authorities - and the everyday traveler.

A growing population and increasing urbanization are driving the need for more transport capacity. By leveraging data and digitizing everyday processes, rail can move ahead of other forms of mobility, and become the solution of choice for governments, local authorities—and the everyday traveler.

The business benefits


Increased capacity and operational capabilities are the ultimate destination. Data is the fuel that can get you there, by helping you:

  1. Manage safety during construction and maintenance

  2. Increase operational efficiency

  3. Increase efficiency in project delivery

By 2030, the European Commission hopes to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 55%. By 2050, it aims to be climate neutral. While a growing urban population could seem a threat to this, it also presents the rail industry in Europe with an opportunity. As one of the most greenhouse-gas-efficient methods of transportation, rail can help governments meet their sustainability goals faster, and still meet the needs of urban and inter-city travelers.


Clearly, this will mean increasing both capacity and operational capabilities. But while rail may be the best route to Europe’s ambitions, there are challenges along the way. Rail expansion projects are increasing in complexity. A shortage of labor and materials is pushing budgets to the limit. Plus, as traffic loads increase, networks will be under more strain than ever before.

"The transport sector is currently responsible for 16.2%* of global greenhouse gas emissions. Rail is responsible for less than 0.5%**"
