Digital transformation in the rail sector with Syracuse   

We make major change processes in the railway sector manageable

The rail sector is on the eve of major changes that will be implemented in the coming decades. Due to an increasing need for capacity of the rail infrastructure from passenger and freight transport, the reliability, availability and capacity of the necessary infrastructure and systems must be deployed more effectively. To achieve this goal, the railway will have to undergo a (mainly digital) transformation and intensification.

With our experience with digitization - and the accompanying intensification of ICT management and control, we know that the necessary changes can only be achieved if contracts, management processes, organizational management and employees are in line with this transformation and intensification.

We are involved by our clients in streamlining technical changes in the rail sector. Usually these are custom solutions for 24/7 business-critical assets and associated digital systems.

Due to mutual dependencies between these assets and digital systems, projects are becoming increasingly complex. Our consultants therefore operate at the intersection of Asset Management and ICT and bring the project results to a steady state by applying generic management principles from the now mature ICT management world.

As a result, in the management phase, instead of the now usually jerky - continuous improvement is realized and assets and systems continue to meet the functional needs of the customer. 

Our Services

Our knowledge of and experience with the rail sector has taught us that other perspectives and a new view on manageability often have a refreshing effect. We therefore offer a number of services.

Project Management

Syracuse provides professional project managers for the rail sector. In addition to delivering the primary functions of assets and / or IT systems, a Syracuse project manager always keeps an eye on the management phase.


Syracuse provides experienced consultants who can clarify the problem definition for your organization, because they oversee the entire playing field, including all stakeholders.

We work independently, but not alone. Thanks to our broad experience, we have built an extensive network of specialists and organizations around us so that we are able to analyze both technical and associated organizational problems holistically and integrally and to design solutions.

In addition, we have the strength to implement and manage the solution together with our partners. Collaboration works! We are convinced of that. The list of our assignments and customers is proof of this.
