IoT-enabled and sensorized assets. DSB is expected to be able to
accelerate and scale its digital services to improve the customer

pandemic lockdown, as well as from the continuous market demand
towards more sustainable ways of transportation, while at the same
time undertaking significant investments into electrification of
the train fleet," said Jesper Welander, commercial IT
director, DSB. "Having already transitioned into an agile software
development paradigm, we will focus on building up capabilities to
deliver digital products – in-house as well as with Cognizant."

DSB, we will draw on our vast experience in sustainable
transportation by harnessing the power of data, analytics and
engineering with the goal of helping DBS improve the experience for
passengers and deliver better business outcomes," said Thomas
Djursø, managing director, Cognizant, Denmark. "Since 2016, Cognizant has been
building a strong relationship with DSB, and over the past two
