June 2012: Industry Challenges Rail & Rolling Stock – Rail Summit La Gaude (France)
The Rail Summit was held on June 5th, 2012 and was hosted by SNCF at the IBM Forum in La Gaude (France). This Summit was a follow-up on other similar Rail Summits held in 2011 at the IBM Forum in La Gaude (also hosted by SNCF), and in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand hosted by Amtrak. Similar to last year’s summit, we were happy to have around 60 representatives from rail industry organizations in Europe that came together to share their implemented projects, lessons learned and plans for the future.
Industry colleagues (railroads, railways, transit and metro systems) from Russia, US, Sweden, Slovenia, UK, Swiss, Poland, The Netherlands and Germany presented important challenges and developments concerning Linear Assets (infrastructure) and Configuration Management (Rolling Stock).
