Big Data and Governance
Business intelligence is needed to support decision makers in public transport. Data helps to take better decisions faster to improve for example services, performance or profitability. Huge amounts of data are registered in systems like planning, e-ticketing / automated fare collection, fleet management, asset management etc. Data can make a difference in practically all areas, from operations management and transport planning to policy making and strategic decision making.
Big Data can help transit agencies to convert millions of data sets into useful information for decision making. However, there are challenges to manage and handle data in terms of privacy and governance.
IT-TRANS will present case studies on how different players are using big data and data analytics tools to improve their efficiency. Further, it will be important to see how these cities are handling data governance issues.
