A subsidiary of U.S.-based telecommunication company Level 3 Communications in Colombia recently received its SAP “hosting partner” recertification, which formally authorizes the level of standards and availability offered at the company’s data center in Bogotá.
The certification, which comes after a periodic review process, also endorses that the company is following the established managed services practices required by SAP, a German enterprise software provider.
The audit of the center, located in the neighborhood of Suba, was conducted by SAP professionals and looked at its compliance with processes including data availability, incident management, support, and customer relations.
The audit was performed in March, and the recertification is valid for two years, until March 31, 2019.
“This recertification underscores the quality of our data centers’ footprint, the solidity of our processes and products, and our level of professionalism,” said Gabriel del Campo, regional vice president of data centers and security for Level 3 Latin America. “Our customers can count on the certainty of knowing Level 3 is recognized in the region as a certified provider of IT infrastructure services for critical environments.”
The same SAP Hosting Partner recertification was also granted after audits of the company’s data centers in Peru and Chile. The company maintains data centers in both Lima and Santiago, the respective capitals of the the two South American nations.
