As the IOC’s Worldwide IT Partner and lead integrator, Atos is at the centre of the digital transformation of the Olympic Games and provides the massive and complex IT systems and solutions that are vital to their success, offering a consistent multichannel customer experience.
In PyeongChang 2018, for the first time, all Games-critical IT applications are remotely managed and hosted 100 per cent in the Cloud – including accreditations, sport entries and qualification, the volunteer portal and the distribution of results in real time, including the Olympic Diffusion System (ODS).
To enable this technological feat, Atos has deployed a vast amount of fundamental digital technology, including:
• Systems that share the results around the world in less than a second;
• Real-time data analytics to secure the Games – neutralising 400 IT security events per second – with zero impact;
• A portal to support the recruitment and training of the 16,000 volunteers; and
• Solutions that process 220,000 accreditations for those involved in the Games.
"As a global leader in digital transformation, we are particularly proud of our long-term relationship with the International Olympic Committee and of delivering the first Games remotely managed and with mission-critical applications hosted in the Cloud," said Patrick Adiba, Atos Group Executive Vice-President, Chief Commercial Officer and CEO Olympics and Major Events. "We are proud and thrilled to meet the challenges of security and efficiency to ensure a world-class fully-connected experience for viewers worldwide."
Atos has been a key technology provider for the Olympic Movement since 1989. As the IOC’s Worldwide IT Partner since 2001, Atos' role is to ensure the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 are fully connected and secure, and the most digitally-enabled Winter Games to date.
