Xomnia trains data analysts at VolkerRail


For large infrastructure projects such as bridges, tunnels, waterworks or railway tracks data science begins to play an increasingly important role. Powerful algorithms make it possible to predict future failures. This allows infrastructure managers to bet on preventive maintenance. This fits well with the new contract types in the industry where smart maintenance is encouraged. At VolkerRail data analysis is already an important asset of the organization. Xomnia supports the data analysts to gain more in-depth knowledge.

Big Data opportunities

‘Replacing or repairing, for example, of a switch on the track before it actually breaks reduces the downtime of the switch significantly. That's good news for travelers and for the efficiency of VolkerRail’ says Dirk Bothof, Manager Data Analysis at VolkerRail.

Share best practices

The data science experts of Xomnia give the data analysis team training about the most effective machine learning techniques and other best practices in data science. ‘It's a very exciting challenge to work with the data analysts and share our experience to achieve the best in-depth results. Sharing knowledge to add more value to an organization is one of our values. Together we will think of possible improvements’ says Marius Helf, Chief Data Scientist at Xomnia.
