Watch this on-demand webinar to learn more about how you can accelerate your transformation to achieve the economic benefits and operational readiness of ERTMS.

Learn from other digital transformations in the railway industry, we know that delivering on-time and on-budget can be a major struggle.

As most European countries are investing huge budgets for ERTMS we must ask ourselves, how do we ensure we achieve true step changes with zero-impact?

The ERTMS initiative isn’t just about technology; it requires end-to-end management, security and integration. We will share insights into how to achieve operational readiness and economic value from your ERTMS implementations during this webinar.

Please watch this webinar to hear and learn how to:

1. Ensure zero-defects, integrated across the IT landscape of the national rail ecosystem, demonstrated through the Atos Operational Readiness Test Factory operated for the Olympic Games.

2. Ensure people are ready – engage with stakeholders (including system vendors, infrastructure managers, train operators and inspection teams) to prepare for their new roles and certified for ERTMS from a single truth. Hear about the Atos MyERTMS App and Web portal to support crucial employee engagement, training, and communication.

3. Ensure processes are ready – create a safe and secure end-to-end service that ensures optimum performance, service management, business continuity and improvement, using common shared data and KPI dashboards. Learn about Atos specialist Bridge services that can help achieve this.
