Alvaro’s vision on digitalisation, and the use of data in rail
Alvaro is very active in the main railway forums worldwide, participating as a speaker and sharing his vision about Digitalisation, Predictive Maintenance, Innovative Business models, and more:
“For me Digitalisation is a lever for business competitiveness, it is not the end goal. In order to overcome the digital challenge, companies must transform their complete value chain offering the best possible customer experience, while being agile enough to react on time and of course, by continuously innovating their business model. To make this possible, data is essential.”
For this reason, Alvaro also is a strong supporter of the open data principle (vs. blackbox data):
“The OPEN Data and OPEN insights principle is, in my opinion, the only way to make our industry significantly improve in this digital age by generating value coopetition through customer-centred ecosystems, instead of close/isolated/traditional competition/barriers.”
As his vision on digitalisation and open data is very close to ours, it’s only natural that Alvaro became a Railnova partner!
