Amtrak, a government-owned corporation, has a handful of important IT projects underway, led by CIO Ed Trainor. The projects should ultimately result in a more tech-enabled travel experience from Albany to Los Angeles.

Amtrak (technically, the National Railroad Passenger Corp.) is installing Wi-Fi on trains, modernizing its reservation system, deploying an ERP system called the Strategic Asset Management system, and broadening its use of e-ticketing. The rail operator also recently re-launched its website.

Trainor was formerly CIO of Paramount Pictures and, before that, in IT management with the Southern California Gas Co. He also served as president of the Society for Information Management.
