Course content
More and more people own smartphones and have the endless possibilities of the digital age always with them. Therefore, it changes how people expect digital services to work from a customer point of view as well as the employees’ point of view. It also enables new services, which diffuse the boundaries between rail, public transport and taxi services, thus allowing more people to travel without their own car. We are also seeing first trends that will come after the age of smartphones: digital avatars speaking and understanding several languages, devices you wear on your body to keep your hands free, voice-based human-machine-interaction and Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. 

In this course you will familiarize yourself with important technologies, business models and new services for digital customer experiences. Besides examining example cases of the Deutsche Bahn Group and other rail companies, you will have time to reflect on example scenarios for your own company.
