DXC will help Renfe to create a competency center for cloud technologies, enabling the company to respond more swiftly to rising levels of passenger and freight volumes. With Renfe expecting an increase of almost 120 million passengers and 1.5 million tonnes of freight in 2022, the rail operator is focused on modernizing its operations and driving growth for its services across Spain and around the world.
To support Renfe’s ambitions, DXC will help manage and modernize the company’s entire IT infrastructure using the latest cloud technologies. The project includes critical IT platforms, operating systems and databases as well as hundreds of IT applications which will be easier to manage and deploy in a cloud-based environment. One of the first applications to be deployed to the cloud is a new operational dashboard which will provide Renfe’s management with real-time data to help keep its passengers safe and ensure that cargo reaches its destination on time.
“Renfe has been collaborating with DXC for more than a decade and this new contract with LogiRAIL reaffirms our confidence in DXC’s capabilities and expertise,” said Oscar Gómez Barbero, General Director of LogiRAIL. “Together we will promote and accelerate the modernization and digitization of the Renfe Group and use the advantages of the cloud to bring even greater benefits to our customers.”
