Bringing our best to the Olympic Games
The Olympic Games is the biggest event on Earth. It has a long and proud history of bringing people together – during times of conflict and in peace time. Its ideals are of finding joy in effort and working in a spirit of friendship, solidarity.
We work to uphold these ideals in helping to deliver the Games and within our wider company culture.
“The Games culture is to go above and beyond to deliver together.”
It makes you feel proud. It’s something that has personally helped us to realize that as a human we can go further than we thought possible.
When we are asked what our most pivotal role is in the Games we say that it is as the technology integrator. Team work is the hardest skill to master and the most important. We need to bring our personal best for the collective good. We will succeed or fail together.
“I think we excel at system integration, we work as partners, at the end we have the same target, we adapt and work together.”
The Organizing Committee has a culture of friendship and we stay together, making lasting relationships that move from one Game to the next, from one country to the next.
As a team we must innovate together, find solutions to any problems we face, discuss, negotiate and compromise.
Our role in the Games is to deliver the backbone of the largest sports related IT contract in the world since 2001, Atos turns the Games securely into a fully connected global experience delivering:
- Testing: we will test all the Games critical IT applications
- Providing the Games experience for people across the world: delivering real-time results to 8 billion different devices worldwide in 0.5 seconds.
- Cloud technology: we will deliver our Olympic Games technology fully in the Cloud. We will host all Olympic Management Systems and Olympic Diffusion Systems on the Atos Canopy Digital Private Cloud – including accreditations, sport entries & qualifications and volunteer portal.
At the opening ceremony the Atos team will be ready, holding our breath, prepared for any eventuality. It is the day we, alongside the athletes, are on the biggest stage on earth and have the most visibility.
This is the time we must bring our very best performance for the success of the whole Olympic family.
