    Systems integration is a widely recognised challenge. Different industries need to upgrade their systems and integrate new technologies. For example, the European rail sector faces a huge challenge to upgrade its fragmented rail network and make it interoperable. The railways in the Netherlands, managed by different stake5
    holders, have also experienced integration challenges. The Dutch High-Speed Line (HSL), FYRA, ERTMS, and the introduction of new commuter trains are examples of these challenges. The article describes this principal challenge for the rail sector to properly upgrade its interoperable services and smoothly integrate new technologies into currently operating infrastructures by including the technical and non-technical factors.
