Will the greatest feat at the Pyeongchang Olympics be staving off cyberattacks?
February 8, 2018 – Even a centuries old tradition like the Olympics cannot stave off the effects of digital transformation.
As athletes, teams, businesses and visitors from around the world gather in Pyeongchang this month, technology will be playing a greater role than ever in the games, from the personal devices augmenting viewers’ experience to IoT devices integrating into sporting events.
This year, all critical IT systems will be hosted on Atos’s cloud, and this will continue through the 2024 Games in Paris, said Marta Sanfeliu, Atos COO for the Olympics and major events, in a company webinar. Atos is a worldwide IT partner for the Olympic Games.
