More Information
Providing a coherent and multidisciplinary approach to digitalization, this Modern Guide aims to systematize how the digitalization process affects infrastructure-based industries, including telecommunications, transport, energy, water and postal services.

This important book reviews the literature on how digital technologies can impact infrastructure design, construction and maintenance costs, with specific references for each industry. Contributors analyse how digitalization is disrupting traditional infrastructure managers in terms of capacity management and traffic flows as well as discussing key topics including data governance, data sharing, digital platforms and sector convergence.

With special attention devoted to regulatory and governance challenges, this will be welcomed by researchers of network industries and digitalization. This will also be of special interest to academics and scholars interested in the digitalization process, data governance and infrastructure management.
Critical Acclaim
‘Infrastructure is not designed for the digital age. Digitalization enables infrastructure managers to dramatically create more value from infrastructure in novel ways. This book covers aspects ranging from technology to markets to get to grips with these important developments.’
– Marijn Janssen, Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands
