The data generated has been used for analyses, to develop plans and to support various corporate processes within the DB Group. Fichtner IT Consulting has provided continuing services throughout the entire period and, in close coordination with DB Netz AG, developed additional add-on solution components. More than 5,000 in-house and external users have used DB-GIS and the information it contained. Two and a half decades of service quality are real proof of our sustainable, customer-focused and dependable project work. DB-GIS will be replaced by AVANI, which has been developed jointly by Hexagon and Fichtner IT Consulting in line with DB's current requirements.
