Ooredoo today announced that Qatar Data Centre has successfully achieved the ISO 20000-1:2011 Certification for Excellence in Information Technology Service Management Systems (SMS), following a rigorous auditing process.
Achieving compliance with the globally-recognised ISO certification further positions Qatar Data Centre as a leading data centre for organisations in the region, and demonstrates that the facility is operating according to industry recognised standards.
Talking about the certification, Yousuf Al Kubaisi, COO of Ooredoo Qatar, said: “The delivery of world-class IT services from our Data Centres has always been a central vision for Ooredoo, as we push to become the ICT provider of choice for Qatar. This ISO certification solidifies our reputation in the IT industry and demonstrates we have the procedures in place to consistently deliver cost effective, quality IT service to our customers.”
As well as highlight the company’s strong alignment with the ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) methodology, the certification will also significantly reduce the need for supplier audits, saving customers time and money as well as minimising disruption for both parties.
To achieve certification, all Qatar Data Centre processes had to be adequately documented and demonstrated to an independent auditor to ensure that they are being executed based on documented policies, procedures and work instructions. 
Qatar Data Centre is one of the most sophisticated and advanced data centres in the region. The facility has been designed in compliance with world-class carrier standards and provides local and regional organisations with a full range of services including Hosting & Co-location, Web Content Delivery, Data Backup & Restoration, Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery, Managed Security and Infrastructure Monitoring & Management.
