Cognizant has announced that it has been chosen as a prominent IT solutions and systems integration (SI) framework partner to Network Rail.

The firm will offer support to Network Rail by implementing a series of improvements to its railway infrastructure performance, such as the way in which it operates a number of its main information management functions and processes.

Network Rail is predicting being involved in the investment of over 500 initiatives, driving greater value for money in terms of the way the business is run in terms of technology.

As well as infrastructure, Cognizant is also keen to assist with the management of the whole of the network's supply chain, working with its internal organisation to ensure that knowledge is shared, and the innovation is at the heart of any future endeavour.

It will also be required to implement a variety of IT solutions in a way that is efficient as well as effective, in the role of a main supplier, priming others in the market when needed.

The selection of Cognizant to provide SI solutions, means that Network Rail's Information Management service will now be able to focus more core activities such as analysing business challenges and strategies, as well as delivering new solutions to problems, upgrades and enhancements.

"Cognizant is excited to partner with Network Rail and provide leadership to this extensive programme over the next four years,” said Rohit Gupta, Head of Cognizant’s Manufacturing, Energy and Transportation practice in the UK. “Over the next 30 years, passenger demand for rail will more than double and freight demand is expected to go up by 140 percent. To meet this ever-growing need, we will closely collaborate with Network Rail and ensure that their IT systems are future-ready."

Mr Gupta added that Network Rail had found a "trusted partner" in Cognizant, that the firm had a proven track record of implementing IT and SI solutions and that the network could soon run more efficiently than it did before.
