The Olympic and Paralympic Games are a complex mix of people, technology and processes. And IT is always at the heart of making the Olympic and Paralympic Games a success.
Beyond the scale and complexity, there is a multi-supplier project with many varied dependencies. All the while, the whole event is highly visible and the world is watching. And when victory can be measured by the smallest of margins, there are no second chances!
The IOC and Atos have embraced digital transformation. We see steep changes in how disruptive technologies can address emerging challenges and make a major impact at the Games for the mobile generation.
The Games are watched across multiple platforms; mobile and online being the most prominent way it is consumed since Rio 2016. This requires a paradigm shift in the IT approach, from a ‘build each time’ to a ‘build once’ model, delivering some critical services over a cloud solution delivered together with other technology partners.
The resulting efficiencies and operating flexibilities make possible a consistent multichannel customer experience – anytime, anyplace, anywhere.
