Earlier this year, India’s Tata Consultancy Services surpassed tech giant IBM to become the most valuable IT brand in the world. With a presence in 46 countries, TCS has also achieved the status of the top IT service provider in the UK. Thanks to this distinction it has clinched a six-year agreement with UK-based Rail Delivery Group to create and operate a Railway Data Marketplace across the country.
The platform is meant to collate information from scattered sources of data about railway for a single digital system. It will boost innovation in the transportation and logistics via tools that will enable seamless data sharing in real-time for passengers in the UK. Public as well as private firms will also get quick access to data, for higher transparency to strengthen a countrywide ecosystem.
