26 May, Singapore

Atos as the appointed Chief IT Integration Partner for the upcoming 28th South East Asian Games Singapore 2015 (SEA Games 2015), completes the first technical rehearsal with flying colours as the nation awaits to roll out the red carpet for the region's sporting greats, come 5 June 2015.

 

An international leader in Digital Services with a new approach to high performance computing in Asia Pacific, Atos and its team of business technologists are gathering steam to achieve pinpoint accuracy in integrating service, technology, process and people to deliver an extraordinary event under the watchful eye of the international games fraternity.

 

The technical rehearsals entail operational scenarios which are played out to stress test the team and the system for quick resolutions.  These scenarios encompass simulations of ‘live' Games, capturing and diffusing real time results to scoreboards and media feeds.  These rehearsals are jointly organized with the Singapore SEA Games Organizing Committee with participation from more than two hundred Atos business technologists based in Singapore and others working from Atos competence centre in Spain.

 

“These are crucial times for us at the SEA Games Organizing Committee for Technology.  Each rehearsal is carried out explicitly to detect any operational gaps, test our technical expertise and enhance our level of readiness to swiftly deploy suitable solutions.  We are pleased with the outcomes of the technical rehearsals thus far which allow us to fine tune our operational model.  We will continue to push forward with more preparatory exercises to ensure support and operational readiness during Games time.” said Brian Lai, Head of Technology, Singapore SEA Games Organizing Committee.

 

“At Atos, our ambition to drive excellent business value to our customers is much like the athlete who must cross the finishing line a Champion.  We too have that one opportunity to respond accurately to the moment at hand.  For such a time-sensitive operation our continuous technical trainings, rehearsals, experience and personal commitment to deliver the games successfully will stand us in good stead.” said Herbie Leung, CEO of Atos in Asia Pacific.

About the 28th SEA Games

 

The region's most prestigious multi-sport event will see its return to Singapore after a 22 year wait when the republic last hosted the Games in 1993. The 28th SEA Games will be held from 5 -16 June 2015, with Singapore Sports Hub as the main venue for the Games. Organised by the Singapore Southeast Asian Games Organising Committee (SINGSOC), the Games is held in conjunction with Singapore's 50th anniversary and will host more than 7,000 athletes and officials from 36 sports. Adopting the theme of Celebrate the Extraordinary, the Games will celebrate triumph of human spirit - be it in sports or daily lives; in success or in the grit to try again and again; in winning or in merely being at the start line. The 28th SEA Games will show the people of the Southeast  Asia that success ultimately comes to ordinary people with extraordinary dreams. It's not about having a champion, but inspiring the champion that is inside each of us.
