Newsletter January 2017: boosting operations and getting business value via real-time data

Railnova Newsletter


Welcome to our first newsletter of 2017! I hope you all had a wonderful time with friends and family over the Holidays and I wish you the very best this year. Let's make 2017 count!

We're starting off the new year with a series of articles on boosting operations and getting business value via real-time data, including the internal changes we're making at Railnova.

In these articles, we give our perspective on how railway companies can extract value from their real-time data, and how they can successfully deploy IoT on their fleets. We also wrote on how we are boosting our own business by changing the way we handle the customer support and user experience with the help of real-time data.

And in case you missed it, Christian's presentation from the London Rolling Stock Maintenance Summit is included below.

Happy reading!

This article shows you the winning path towards value by embracing IoT platforms.
