Atos is the Worldwide IT Partner of the Paralympic Games
Atos has provided IT solutions to the Paralympic Games since 2002 and is the Worldwide IT partner of the International Paralympic Committee since 2008.
The Paralympic Games are elite sport events for athletes and clearly emphasize the participants’ athletic achievements, not their disability. The movement has grown dramatically since its early days.
The role of IT at the Paralympic Games is changing significantly, reflecting new expectations about its organization, delivery and experience.
Our business technologists support the Paralympic Games and over 20 other major para-sport events including events such as the IPC Athletics World Championships and IPC Swimming World Championships.
The IPC and Atos work together and make step changes in technology innovations to turn the Paralympic Games into a fully connected global experience
What we deliver
Information Technology products and services are key to the transformation and delivery of the Paralympic Games, including systems to process accreditations for all those involved in the events, timing and scoring services, the SMART player and the systems and services to distribute the results to the world’s media in less than a second.
The SMART player application which Atos created enables those watching live swimming and wheelchair basketball on www.paralympic.org to view real-time results tickers, statistics, biographies, news and social media – all in one integrated and synchronized window. It also simplifies the user’s interests and gives specific and relevant results per sport, similar to the ones available to commentators inside the venues.
What our clients say about us
“Atos has helped the IPC to grow and offer better services to our members, National Paralympic Committees, athletes and competition organizers. We are delighted to extend our partnership with Atos and look forward to working together to further strengthen the organization”
Xavier Gonzalez, Former CEO of the IPC
“Once again the cutting edge services provided by Atos for Rio2016 contributed to the overall success of Latin America’s first Paralympic Games. By working in partnership with the IPC and the Paralympic Movement, the services provided by Atos helped reach billions of people around the world with information and key data about the Games.”
