By combining the power of SAP HANA with the expertise and offerings from Hitachi Data Systems, hear how Russian Railways:
- Optimized scheduling and analytical reporting
- Simplified data storage, decreased data volume, and reduced associated maintenance costs
- Lowered energy consumption and optimized purchasing equipment
- Achieved faster processing times, reducing the time needed for its monthly cost-analysis report from three days to 20 minutes
