The President of the International Olympic Committee last week met with the Chief Executive of Worldwide IT Partner for the Olympic Games, Atos, at an exclusive event to celebrate another successful partnership for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
For this summer’s Games, Atos will integrate, manage and secure the vast IT system that relays results, events and athlete information to spectators and media around the world.
Results and information will be delivered via two innovative systems:
myInfo+ – This will be available for the first time at London 2012. The new internet application enables accredited media, sports officials and athletes to access information such as schedules, transport news and sports records.
Commentator Information System (CIS) – For the first time ever at the Summer Games, all 26 Olympic sports have been added to the Commentator Information System (CIS). Managed centrally from the Technology Operations Centre, the CIS provides commentators and journalists with touch-screen technology that gives results in real time.
For the London Games, Atos expects to process 30% more results data than in Beijing, ensuring the world’s media meets the increasing demand of fans for information as it happens.
The company became a Worldwide Olympic Partner when it joined the TOP Programme as SchlumbergerSema in 2001.
