Shaping successful digitalisation at Deutsche Bahn


Article: Shaping successful digitalisation at Deutsche Bahn

DB Systel GmbH, headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, is a wholly owned subsidiary of DB AG and a digital partner for all Group companies.

With our holistic, customer-specific offering that meets the highest IT standards, we drive the digitalisation of all DB AG companies successfully and with integration and value creation. To do this, we develop effective and efficient customer solutions based on innovative topics such as the cloud, big data, Internet of Things and artificial intelligence. As a long-term partner, we bring substantial railway and IT expertise and operate in a vendor-neutral way, striving towards the common goal. Currently around 5,000 Systel employees are employed at our main locations in Frankfurt, Berlin and Erfurt.

Right from the start we have been supporting the process of digital transformation in the DB Group. To find and implement suitable solutions for the companies in the Group, we rely on our comprehensive, market-oriented product portfolio, as well as a high level of consulting and methodological expertise. In addition, we operate our own ventures, such as ZERO.ONE.DATA, as well as open data platforms and Systel's own innovation laboratory, Skydeck. We are also active on the external market with selected services and products.

DB Systel on its way to the agile working world

The core elements of this dynamic development are modern, flexible IT structures and a new, active working environment thanks to agile, independent teams. At the moment, we are creating a major shift from traditional working and organisational structures to self-organisation and enterprise-wide networks. Our goal is to support our customers and their increasingly variable requirements in the best possible way with flexible ways of working and agile methods.
