Crayon specialists will help create the technological basis for various LTG Group enterprises in the transition to storing and using information in a safe and secure environment. Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services will be used as resources for cloud platforms.

“LTG Group manages large amounts of data and complex IT systems. Some of them allow to ensure uninterrupted train traffic in Lithuania, to perform complex logistics operations. Systems also play an important role in a country’s national security. Therefore, we intend to move them to a place where the highest possible safety and uninterrupted operation will be ensured, ”says Elijus Chivilis, CEO of LTG Digital.

One of the main requirements of LTG is a high level of cybersecurity. For reliability and continuity, several cloud platforms will be used in parallel.

Currently, Lithuanian Railways use LTG Infra traffic management information systems, LTG Cargo logistics solutions, LTG Link planning and other elements of the digital railway.

It is noted that Crayon is one of the leaders in its field. The company has 50 offices in 35 countries around the world.
