With the Games having drawn to a close and 1 million spectators having enjoyed the action in Buenos Aires, Worldwide TOP Partner Atos is pleased with the major role it played in the organisation of the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018.
Atos organised the systems to share the results in real time. These were available from multiple devices, anywhere and at any time, for each of the 239 different events.
"As the global IT partner of the IOC, we are pleased to have provided the key digital solutions for the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018. With the coordination of a team of 100 IT specialists, Atos' team located in Buenos Aires and the Major Events team based in Barcelona, we have given full support to the operations of the Games, and we hope to have inspired the young generation of South America," said Nacho Moros, Chief Operations Officer for the Olympic Games and Major Events at Atos.
Atos managed the implementation of key technology and systems solutions for the Youth Olympic Games, through:
• The Olympic Management System (OMS): The volunteers portal including application forms, the competitions calendar, income and expense management, uniform distribution, and more.
• The Olympic Diffusion System (ODS): Integrating data from the Timing, Scoring and Results (TSR) platform during the Games, where the results and information were disseminated for commentators, and for websites and applications for the press, federations and the Organising Committee.
Atos has provided IT solutions to the Olympic Games since Barcelona 1992, and has been the Worldwide IT Partner for the Olympic and Paralympic Games since 2001.
