The Olympic Games are a complex mix of technology, processes and people. Not only is there the scale and complexity of the project, covering many clients, sites and systems, but it is also a multi-supplier project with many varied dependencies. Furthermore, the whole event is highly visible and the world is watching. And where victory is measured by the smallest margin, there are no second chances!
Atos’ challenge is to create an IT solution for each Olympic Games that allows the capture and reporting of every moment of the action and supports in bringing it to the world via television and the Internet, first time, every time! This requires a blend of specialist skills and experience backed up by a complete understanding of just what the organisers, competitors and audience expect.
As lead integrator, project manager and IT operations manager, Atos is ultimately responsible for the entire IT infrastructure of the Games. The focus is on two key IT areas:
What our commitment to the Olympic Games can mean for your enterprise
The lessons learnt in such a critical and high-pressure environment enable us to improve the quality of our services and improve our capacity to deliver complex projects in all other industries and markets.
Atos has made these commitments to the International Olympic Committee 6 times since 2002 and met all expectations. We performed at this intense level during London 2012 and are now committed through to 2016. Just imagine what we can do for you.
The benefits of this experience can be brought to your projects through best practices in areas such as consortium and project management, content and knowledge management, risk driven management, change management, data centes and IT Security.
This expertise is captured by the Atos Major Events unit. This unit has been exclusively dedicated to the provision of IT solutions and services to large-scale events and international bodies since 1989, carrying its experiences and know-how from one event to another.
