Sydney Trains provides train services in the Sydney central business district and metropolitan area. It underwent a major restructuring and was formally launched on July 1, 2013, replacing CityRail as the provider of metropolitan train services for Sydney (Australia). “Under the contract, valued at AUD 34.9 million, HCL Australia Services will provide support and maintenance services for 107 business applications,” a Sydney Trains spokesperson told PTI.

Last year, the rail operator had sought to replace a network of 11 different external suppliers which had been supporting and maintaining its business applications. The partnership follows a recommendation from the 2012 NSW Commission Audit, which found 130 corporate systems in use across the transport cluster, and suggested that amount be reduced to between 8 and 24 in order to reap annual savings of $100 million.
