Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games
The Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games will be the biggest yet with 12 new medal events – the largest number of new events at any Olympic Winter Games. For the first time, there will be slopestyle and halfpipe ski, slopestyle and parallel special slalom events for both men and women, as well as ski jumping for women, a mixed Biathlon relay, a figure skating team event and a luge team relay.
The best athletes, tens of thousands of dedicated volunteers, millions of visitors, billions of viewers, complex logistics and critical IT security make the Olympic and Paralympic Games more than just a sporting event. It’s the world’s largest and none of it would be possible without technology.
The most digitally-enabled Winter Games of all time
We believe that the rise of mobility further will increase. More rich, real-time content needs to be available on an anytime, anywhere, any device basis. The Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games will also mark the first time that myInfo+ – a service used by print and broadcast media to check information including the competition schedule, medal ranking, weather reports and news feeds – will be available on all mobile devices. Broadcasters will also have access both in Sochi and remotely around the world to the Commentator Information System which gives them the latest competition information and scores to help colour their commentary.

Sochi 2014 represents our seventh Games as the Worldwide IT Partner of the International Olympic Committee and fourth Paralympics as partner of the IPC. As with previous Games, Atos is responsible for leading the consortium of IT partners to design, build and operate the massive, mission-critical IT infrastructure and solutions that support the Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
