Swedish Railways (SJ AB), the national railway operator in Sweden, travels between 350 stations and carries 100,000 passengers per day. The company maintains approximately 3,500 employees and boasts a yearly revenue of 1.3 billion dollars.
In May 2006, SJ AB recognized the need to upgrade its internal software delivery system in order to provide a shared platform for all of its IT systems. The integration of the IT systems is essential for SJ AB as it uses a diverse range of applications relevant to human resources, sales, and other departments. Each applications needs to be accessed across a range of interfaces from PCs to PDAs.
