Capgemini is platinum sponsor of the railway industry association’s innovation conference 2023

We have entered the next era of digital transformation. It is characterised by a growing convergence of product, software, data, and services across all industries. At Capgemini we call this ‘Intelligent Industry’

The past year has been one of many seismic changes that have impacted industry, we’ve seen shifts in the market from labour availability to major supply chain disruptions. And so, the growing competitiveness of the UK market is driving organisations to think differently.

Capgemini is proud to be platinum sponsor of the Railway Industry Association’s Innovation conference taking place on 28-29th March in Nottingham. The focus for this year’s conference is ‘Realising the benefits of innovation’, and as one of RIA’s major flagship events, it brings together rail innovators, clients and stakeholders to solve some of the industry’s most pressing challenges.

Rapid urbanization combined with moves to sustainable transport point to increased demand for rail transportation linking major urban hubs and feeding into multi-modal local transport networks.

By taking an Intelligent Industry approach, Capgemini is driving the future of Railway, supporting its clients to harness change and drive rapid product evolution and innovation to ensure future success. We’d like to invite you to also join our keynote session, where our expert Andrew Hawthorn will be discussing the need to embrace change, how digitisation is key to maximising the benefits of change, and how you can turn ideas into impact.
