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.

What we deliver

Digital Workplace

Information Technology productsand 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 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.

IPC – the most important communication channel to promote Paralympic sports, athletes and news to a global audience.
