ALSTOM: During the pandemic DXC Technology implemented digital workspaces from Citrix to provide Alstom’s engineers with secure and reliable remote access to essential apps.

These include a critical in-house CAD tool that requires powerful graphics workstations and a low-latency, high-performing local network.

‘The cost of an engineer who cannot work is €800 per day. That’s before you factor in the penalties imposed for late delivery of a product’, said Mehdi Belahcen, Compute & Cloud Manager at Alstom.

‘Within four days, our 1 000 European CAD engineers were able to work from home on projects using their own computers, while retaining the same flexibility and speed that they enjoy on-site.’
