News : Metro de Madrid Selects Accenture to Support its Digital Transformation
Madrid Spain Feb. 23 2016 -- Metro de Madrid, at metro system, has selected Accenture (NYSE:ACN) to support the design of a new operational model for control of station equipment, security, and passenger information management.
The "Digital Metro Station" transformation project has two main work-streams: the first – using the Accenture IT Framework – defines the next generation platform that will control and operate the station as part of a wider, second phase redesign of the organization’s IT architecture.
Metro de Madrid currently runs a combination of heterogeneous and proprietary solutions, with information stored in functional silos and a high total cost of ownership. Its objective is to define an open and scalable digital architecture which supports a sustainable growth for the future.
Accenture will work with Metro de Madrid to analyze and compare different technologies available that could support its digital transformation, improving efficiency in station operations through centralized business process integration and orchestration, providing an improved passenger experience and introducing the flexibility to create new Internet of Things (IoT) enabled services.
"This long-term project to create a new digital platform to underpin our service is a very complex engagement" said Carlos Esquíroz, Engineering and Maintenance Director, Metro de Madrid. "By working with Accenture to understand the breadth and depth of the available technologies, we are confident that the final platform implementation itself will be a success, and that our new standardized digital operational model will result in enhanced operation, and greater passenger satisfaction."
