Ooredoo Wins Contract to Partner With MoTC On TASMU Project Towards Qatar Vision 2030

Doha, Qatar

Ooredoo today announced it has been awarded a major contract with Qatar’s Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC) at QITCOM 2019 to work together on TASMU, an initiative designed to facilitate and accelerate all pillars of Qatar Vision 2030 and develop Qatar into the world’s first Smart Nation.

The flagship TASMU project is intended to act as a driver of Qatar’s transformation into a sustainable, technology-driven nation, as defined in Qatar Vision 2030. TASMU will function as a project management operation, overseeing and managing the digital development of Qatar by providing structure, governance and delivery enablement for the implementation of smart technologies across five national priority sectors; transportation, logistics, healthcare, environment and sports.

Acting as an anchor of the TASMU project, the TASMU Central Platform will be the foundation of Qatar’s transformation into a smart nation. It will enable all stakeholders to link together and feed data into a central cloud-based data lake, facilitating cross-sector collaboration and data sharing.

Development, operation and commercialization of the TASMU Central Platform was awarded to a consortium, of which Ooredoo is the main partner.

In order to digitalise Qatar as a nation and ensure its cities operate smartly, more than 100 use cases will be signed up to the TASMU project, tasked with developing solutions that address national challenges identified across the five priority sectors. All use cases will be linked up to the TASMU Central Platform and will share data to the comprehensive data bank in the cloud, enabling the continued evaluation of progress and the creation of a Smart Nation. Eventually, residents of Qatar will be able to use an app to digitalise their daily lives, from finding a parking space to making sure their air conditioning is operating economically and sustainably.

As well as developing and operating the Central Platform, Ooredoo will also provide five use cases to offer solutions to real-life challenges seen in the five priority sectors.

Sheikh Nasser Bin Hamad Bin Nasser Al Thani, Chief Business Officer, Ooredoo Qatar said of the signing: “We are incredibly proud to be working with MoTC to accelerate the progress of development for all pillars of Qatar Vision 2030, and to be playing a fundamental role in making Qatar the world’s first truly Smart Nation. Being central to the creation and management of the TASMU Smart Qatar project is an honour for Ooredoo, and is a role that fits perfectly with our absolute commitment to ensuring the realisation of Qatar Vision 2030. We look forward to a nation of Smart Cities, where we utilise state-of-the-art technology to enhance Qatari citizens’ and residents’ digital lives on a daily basis.”
