Technology Readiness Assessment
- Date: June 20, 2022
When it comes to investing in new technology for your transit system, it can be helpful to think of investing in a process instead of a product. Then you can find the tools that fit the process that best suits your needs and goals.
The goal of this assessment is to provide agencies with insight into key areas that increase the likelihood of success when implementing and maintaining technology. The focus areas of the assessment — data security, business continuity, and management of vendors, contracts, and equipment — are not specific to a particular type of transit technology or to a specific type of transit. Rather, they are meant to shine a light on the important yet unglamorous and often overlooked foundations that help keep your systems, and ultimately your transit services, running smoothly when things go awry.
We'd love your feedback! We hope to keep iterating on this tool to make it as useful as possible to you.
