Technical innovations for Deutsche Bahn

Article: Technical innovations for Deutsche Bahn

Digitalisation is shaping the future of Deutsche Bahn decisively. With state-of-the-art IT solutions, DB Systel supports a wide variety of business processes that are necessary for the Group Management.

The Group Management uses DB Systel in its role as integrator and enabler to promote and optimise digitally supported, company-wide cooperation.

DB Systel manages the central units of the DB Group, such as finance, controlling, accounting, procurement, human resources and real estate. It is important to make use of cost advantages with value-adding IT synergies. This is done in compliance with the highest standards in security and data protection. 

Intelligent solutions have to meet the ever-growing customer requirements as well as provide optimum technical support for the internal processes and affairs of Deutsche Bahn.As a digital partner of Deutsche Bahn, we operate with a long-term and vendor-neutral mindset, in line with our common goal – "We shape progress and the future". In addition to our many years of experience and extensive consulting and methodological expertise, we offer a comprehensive, market-oriented product portfolio enriched with individual developments.

Application operation in the cloud, as well as the use and deployment of innovative trends such as big data solutions, are very important at Group Management level. We advise in all areas of digitalisation and actively contribute our many years of expertise in the form of IT and market expertise, as well as experts, in various programmes and projects. For example, we operate the digital, modern workplace solutions throughout the Group, meeting today's requirements for flexible, location-independent and thus collaborative work.
