Infor selected by Transdev for cloud asset management


Sydney transport services operator Transdev is deploying a cloud solution from business cloud software provider Infor to underpin its company-wide transition to cloud-based asset management. 

Transdev, which operates buses, ferries, light rail, and rail services across Australia and New Zealand, including Sydney ferries and light rail, says that as part of the agreement, it will roll out a range of Infor cloud-based solutions.

The Transdev deployment will include:

  • Infor CloudSuite EAM SaaS
  • Infor User Adoption Platform Bundle SaaS
  • Infor EAM Enterprise Edition Mobile SaaS
  • Customer Success+
  • Infor EAM Enterprise Edition Fleet Management

Transdev Australasia Chief Information Officer Peter Orlowski said when the organisation decided to embark on a whole-of-business cloud migration, “partnering with Infor made sense”.

“We have had a strong and productive relationship with Infor and their experience and expertise complimented our needs as we shift more of our business to the cloud,” Orlowski said.

“We have set a fairly aggressive timeline for the delivery of our asset management solution, and we are confident in Infor’s experience and agile method of implementation that we can deliver a solution that is robust, secure and importantly, meets the needs of our business.

“Transport is a fast-paced industry and is essential to keeping Australia and New Zealand moving post-COVID, and the ability to manage our assets and inventory through a safe, secure, real-time cloud-based platform is critical.”

Under the agreement, Infor will be key to Transdev’s plans to:

  • establish a centralised asset strategy
  • standardise and simplify group-wide processes
  • implement cloud technology around automation, internet of things and telemetry integrations
  • address customer expectations underpinning Transdev’s asset strategy
  • manage audit trails

“As an industry leader in multi-modal passenger transport, Transdev operates some of Australia and New Zealand’s transport icons, including Sydney Ferries and light rail, and Auckland Transport’s rail service,” Infor ANZ managing director Jarrod Kinchington said.

“Infor understands that our customers demand agility for streamlined deployments, and we are committed to partnering with Transdev to accelerate the value of their technology investments and playing a key role in establishing its centralised asset management strategy.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
