IDC TechScape: Worldwide Technology Innovation in the Railways Industry, 2022
This IDC TechScape analyzes technology innovation in the railway industry to help senior executives across urban and interurban rail prioritize their organizations' technology innovation road maps against the railway industry's technology adoption progress.
"Countries around the world committing huge amounts of public and private funding to interurban and urban rail transportation, railway infrastructure companies, and service operators cannot just scale the status quo. Building more kilometers of rail tracks or shifting to high-speed rail is not always affordable or enough to improve passenger experience, grow revenues, and increase operational efficiency, while ensuring safety, security, and sustainability. Railways around the globe must rely on technologies such as automatic traffic control systems, 5G, AI, and IoT to drive digital transformation of their business and operating models," said Massimiliano Claps, research director, IDC Government Insights.
