The Tasmu Platform, which was launched in a ceremony Wednesday by the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC), would contribute to the growth of Qatar’s digital economy, according to Reem Mohamed al-Mansoori, assistant undersecretary of Digital Society Development at the MoTC.
Speaking at the event, al-Masoori described the Tasmu Platform as the “backbone” of Qatar’s digital infrastructure to enable the collection and analysis of data across the nation.
“This will support the development of collaborative smart solutions that will enhance everyone’s daily life. The platform’s large cloud storage and high-computing capacity, combined with services such as payment gateways, data analytics, weather, and traffic control systems, 5G, and IoT are available to public and private sectors, as well as developers across the country. This reflects why the Tasmu Platform sits at the heart of all services and smart solutions that will be provided in Qatar,” she said.
According to al-Mansoori, the Tasmu performs three fundamental functions. First, it promotes communication between government entities, businesses, and individuals across sectors to ensure collaborative efforts when developing smart solutions in Qatar.
Second, it will provide the public and private sectors with advanced technologies that can be utilised to develop smart solutions and applications that meet national KPIs. Third, it will store and analyse national data and develop key insights to support decision-making and resource management across all organisations in Qatar, al-Mansoori explained.
Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad bin Nasser al-Thani, chief commercial officer at Ooredoo, said: “We were immensely proud to launch Tasmu Platform and kickstart the phenomenal Tasmu Programme that will propel our country towards its goal of becoming one of the world’s advanced smart countries.
“As a leading telecommunications operator with innovation firmly at the heart of our strategy, working with some of the world’s greatest technology innovators, we are committed to supporting the Qatar National Vision 2030 and the digital transformation of our beloved country.”
Sheikh Nasser added: “We are proud to be playing such a pivotal role in this inspiring project with our esteemed partners and extend our gratitude to the government of Qatar for placing its trust in us to deliver Tasmu Platform.”
