Alpha Data brings Global Village ticketing to the cloud
Alpha Data, a UAE-based systems integrator and one of the longest-standing IT companies in the country, recently completed work on hosting the e-commerce portal of Global Village at its ‘Alpha Cloud’ Public Cloud Service.
Global Village is a large tourism, leisure and entertainment project that covers an area of 1.6 million square metres. Located in the Dubailand entertainment complex in Dubai, it receives an estimated five million-plus guests a year. To accommodate more visitors and provide greater convenience, its management recently consulted with several reliable cloud service providers to host its e-commerce portal before eventually choosing Alpha Data as the preferred partner.
Alpha Data offered an attractive Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model for hosting the Global Village portal on Alpha Cloud, a cloud service that enables adopters to scale on demand, optimise for price, and enjoy high levels of performance and business continuity. Aside from these advantages, Alpha Data also met Global Village’s strict compliance requirements as an ISO 27001-certified organisation; ISO 27001 is the global standard for Information Security Management.
Murugesan Vaithilingam, Services Director at Alpha Data, said: “Global Village is one of the biggest destinations of its kind, so we focused on developing a world-class hosted environment that could seamlessly support its ticketing transactions and bring added convenience to its customers. We were able to deliver a quick turnaround time and fully comply with Global Village’s requirements. This project is reflective of the growing popularity of our Alpha Cloud services and the strong trust in Alpha Data’s systems integration capabilities. It was also very fulfilling for us to help enhance the operations of such an iconic tourist destination with true essence of cloud capabilities with elasticity on-demand and pay-as-you-grow model.”
