Be Smarter

For successful results through smart supplier orchestration

The Olympic Games are a complex mix of technology, processes and people. Not only is there the scale and complexity of the project, covering many clients, sites and systems, but it is also a multi-supplier project with many varied dependencies.

Atos is the Worldwide IT Partner and lead integrator of the Olympic Games and designs, builds, manages and integrates the contributions of all technology partners and suppliers – multiple national and global stakeholders –  to deliver seamless and secure technology operations and services. Providing instant communications to athletes, spectators, organizers, officials, media, television viewers and internet users worldwide.

“Technology is critical to the success of each edition of the Olympic Games. We are delighted that we will be able to continue relying on Atos and its vast experience to deliver flawless, innovative IT services.”

IOC President Thomas Bach


A blend of specialist skills and experience backed up by a complete understanding of just what the organizers, competitors and audience expect.

Crucial to delivery success and the Games digital IT transformation is ensuring that all partners work together successfully to the same objectives, in the same timeframes and working without contractual relationships.

This does not happen by accident. Proven processes and methodologies create the right framework for collaboration. A unique Service Integration and Management (SIAM) methodology is designed to maintain a high-performance partner and supplier network at every stage of planning and implementation.

For organizations the benefits are the same. Digital transformation sits on the solid foundations of the determination of everyone involved to achieve success. Our Service Integration and Management (SIAM) service helps make sure our customers get seamless, orchestrated support from their supplier ecosystem so that everyone pulls together, and succeeds together.

How can this expertise help your business?

Successful SIAM involves not only the creation of a coordinated, end-to-end service model, but also the right commercial incentives to deliver on the desired business outcomes. SIAM is not a radical new way of delivering IT services; it is a natural evolution of a classic outsourcing arrangement that offers mastery of the operating model. In adopting SIAM, organizations can lead their own IT orchestration, achieving agility with control.
