FSTechnology SpA is the company owned by the Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Group that is dedicated to technology and innovation. The mission of FSTechnology is to strengthen and support digital innovation, ensuring top levels of quality, efficiency and time to market in customer services.
Amongst the various initiatives that are aimed at adopting new technologies such as blockchains, Artificial Intelligence, robotics and the lnternet of Things (IoT), which are based on modern cloud computing infrastructure and on innovative 5G networks, particular attention has been paid to the optimisation of predictive diagnostics, which will allow a reduction in the amount of time in which railway infrastructure cannot be used when there is a breakage or anomaly, and will mean that the punctuality and regularity of rail traffic can be improved.
So as to improve the effectiveness of the investments, FSTechnology will reduce time to market – the time that elapses between when a product is conceived and its actual application – thanks to a global vision of the IT services that the group needs, and to the management, centralised control and standardisation of processes and tools. To meet the FS Italiane Group’s strategic goals for digital innovation, this evolution will take place using synergies between co-working models, the full use of key internal skills, and the systematic assessment of business opportunities.
