Union Pacific's NetControl project is a re-write of its current mainframe-backed transportation and logistics platform. NetControl is a massively distributed system which has posed many software engineering challenges: challenges of scale, automation, monitoring, and coordination. See how Union Pacific evolved its technology platform to support the NetControl project and enable the digital transformation of the railroad.
