For a Government transport authority in APAC, Wipro delivered 19% savings in a year through its best-in-class analytics driven solution
The client is a statutory board under the Ministry of Transport of an Asian country, which spearheads land transport developments across the country. It is responsible for the planning, design, development, management and maintenance of the transit systems, roads and related facilities. It also plans the long-term transport needs of a major city of the country with the ultimate goal of providing a smooth and seamless journey for its inhabitants
While planning long-term transport goals, the transportation departments of most governments face dual challenges of creating a scalable as well as streamlined infrastructure. Confronted with fast paced socio-economic development and increased pressure on land transport networks, the use of analytics emerged as highly useful in planning and policy formulation.
With a population of over 4 million, the city of interest for the client body is expecting the population to grow by 25% by 2020 and host more than 10 million tourists per day. The economy is growing significantly and all these trends were adding to the pressure on the existing infrastructure. The client body handles more than 12 million ticketing transactions per day and wanted to develop and fine-tune the land transport (whether by car, bus or train) policies using advanced analytics to ensure comfort, convenience and pricing of the city public transport.
The scope was identified as the implementation of an enterprise data warehousing platform that would enable the client to perform in depth analysis of bus, train ridership and taxi availability for meaningful trend analysis, long term policy planning and data mining.
