Video: Russian Railways Buys SAP HANA and Improves Information Flow 5x for Faster, Better Decision Making (Eng & Rus)

Information can be a double-edged sword.

No one is going to argue with the notion that good decisions require getting the right information to the right people at the right time.  It’s a truism.  Too often, though, information overwhelms decision-makers.  Noise drowns out the signal.  A river that overflows its banks is a dangerous animal.

The one million employees of Russian Railways move passengers and freight across 11 time zones every day.  It’s a $50 billion a year business of immense complexity.  The information needed to run their business effectively was out there – but that was the problem.  How could they get it to the decision-makers in a way that would enable the company to efficiently manage the business while continuing to deliver innovation?  It was a daunting challenge.

When Russian Railways turned to SAP, they found a true partner who was able to proactively tackle their biggest IT challenges.

Russian Railways was able to use SAP Rapid Prototyping to test a HANA implementation before fully committing to a large scale change in their mission-critical IT systems.

In the end, Russian Railways was able to accelerate information flow to its managers due to SAP HANA and SAP ActiveEmbedded support – enabling better, faster decision making and improved operational efficiency.
