DB Engineering & Consulting acquires infraView GmbH
DB Engineering & Consulting acquired the Mainz-based IT company infraView in October. infraView specializes in developing digital solutions for monitoring, inspecting and analyzing infrastructure assets and vehicles.
It was infraView who created the DIANA diagnostics and analytics platform for DB. This is one of the world's largest digital switch diagnostics platforms and is connected to more than 20,000 switches. Its intelligent diagnosis and analysis of data allows maintenance and damage repair required on infrastructure and vehicles to be identified and carried out before problems arise. This can reduce the number of switch malfunctions by up to 50% for instance, contributing to higher quality and punctuality in rail operations.
"Working together with infraView's specialists, we are broadening our expertise to encompass more digitalization topics," said Niko Warbanoff, Chairman of the Board of Managing Directors of DB Engineering & Consulting. "We translate the opportunities and potential that digitalization offers for infrastructure and rail vehicles into advantages for our customers in Germany and around the world."
