In this short communication article, the priorities of some prerequired projects for the digital transformation in rail industry in the field of Information Technology (IT) are stated. Digital transformation based on Business Intelligence (BI) in passenger and freight transport industries, is one of the most fundamental and challenging issue of any future local, nationwide, and worldwide economic and political condition. Rail transport as one of the sub-sectors of transport industry has a key role in economic growth as well as culture and society. Recently, new technologies especially in creation and utilization of high-speed railways has been practiced in many developed countries. Today, the digital transformation of the railway industry and finding appropriate approaches to increase capacity, reduce costs and increase the share of rail, has been the focus of many researchers all around the world.
