TÜViT certifies Bayer Business Services’ data center locations


Top marks for Global Data Center operating concept

Leverkusen. On August 10, 2006, German IT certification company TÜViT certified the three Global Data Center locations of Bayer Business Services in Leverkusen. Two of the buildings from which many customers’ business-critical IT systems are operated were awarded the highest certification level, while the third achieved the second-highest level.

Bayer Business Services’ Global Data Center, split between three locations, is based on a unique operating concept that meets the highest standards in terms of availability and reliability. For example, even if one of the facilities goes down, Bayer Business Services can immediately continue operations in the second building, with full system availability in the third building being achieved within four weeks. Customers can also choose modified operating concepts for less critical applications.

The quality of the three locations evidenced by the TÜViT certification enables Bayer Business Services to meet the security and reliability standards the Bayer Group requires in its global business processes. This high quality level also benefits the many customers outside the Bayer Group who use the services of the Global Data Center.

Bayer Business Services is the Bayer Group’s international competence center for IT-based services. The goal of its approximately 4,400 employees around the world is to provide new ideas and high-performance solutions that contribute sustainably to its customers’ value creation. Bayer Business Services’ product offering is focused on four core areas: IT and telecommunications, procurement and logistics, human resources and executive personnel services, and finance and accounting. The service spectrum ranges from consultancy through the development and implementation of system solutions to the handling of entire business processes. For industry and public-sector customers, Bayer Business Services positions itself as a business process outsourcing partner; for Bayer, as a shared service center.
