A Slovenia-based railway operator has selected an IBM cloud-based platform to centralize passenger, freight and logistics information systems across its rail network.
Slovenian Railways handles trains that carry 15.3 million passengers and 15.8 million tons of cargo per year and IBM will provide its SmartCloud to help the operator’s IT service desk move to a converged infrastructure, IBM said Thursday.
“IBM has been working with railways across the world to make them more efficient, secure and commuter friendly,” said Roman Koritnik, country sales leader for IBM Slovenia.
SmartCloud works to automate systems in real-time and secure mobile devices, servers and other endpoints throughout an organization.
According to IBM, it partnered with Smartis to carry out cloud computing project for Slovenian Railways.
