UMB transforms the Center of Excellence for Tracks (KPZ), taking it into the Microsoft Azure Cloud and assuming operational responsibility for the entire technology platform through IT as a service.

Digitization of Business Processes

The Center of Excellence for Tracks (KPZ) in Samstagern develops innovative engineering solutions for rail track construction and maintenance, aimed at national and international railway companies. The KPZ rail track experts are know-how carriers and experienced partners of railway companies, railroad siding owners, and engineering firms. They often work mobile on location and are dependent on first class access to their IT systems.

”UMB has taken over our entire IT operation and transformed the complete infrastructure to take it into the Microsoft Azure Cloud“, explains Peter Güldenapfel, KPZ CEO. All IT workspaces become mobile and are made available from the cloud. This enables flexible, mobile, and scalable access to all business processes and applications.
