Digital Empowerment for the Olympic Games – Reference Brochure
Turning the Games into a fully connected global experience
Some business projects are large, complex, and critical to the continued success of an organization. Then there are the Olympic Games and their underpinning technology. Most athletes, visitors, TV viewers, and digital consumers have little idea how important the underlying digital technology is to the Olympic Games.
It is not only massive, incredibly complex and vital to the success of the event; it also has a fixed deadline and the event must be beamed to the world within half a second.
But we go beyond…
The role of IT at the Olympic Games is changing significantly: reflecting new expectations about its organization, delivery and experience. Many of the innovations in technology will help to meet them.
In the years ahead, cloud services will drive greater efficiency and organizational agility. Complex data will spawn new insights into the needs and expectations of athletes and the public. Online and mobile video services will break down geographical barriers. Cyber security will be even more tightly controlled by best-in-class industrial practices.
