The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is the supreme authority of the Olympic Movement. Based in Lausanne, Switzerland, the IOC ensures the regular celebration of the Olympic Games, strongly encourages the promotion of the Olympic values, and supports the promotion of ethics in sport as well as youth education through sport.
The need: The Summer and Winter Olympic Games happen only once every two years, each time in a different location. They generate huge amounts of data and require massive computing infrastructure. Moving to the Cloud will reduce this infrastructure requirement.
The solution: Atos has built a new Technology Control Center that will serve for the Games in Rio de Janeiro (2016), Pyeongchang (2018), Tokyo (2020), the 2022 and 2024 Olympic Games, delivering secure services over the Cloud using Canopy, the Atos Cloud, and EMC2 as delivery partner.
The benefit: The Cloud solution will provide more cost efficiency, agility and productivity. It will also help further improve the experience of media, athletes and spectators at each Olympic Games in the future.
