ATOS SERVES AS IT-PARTNER TO INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE
Atos, a global leader in digital transformation located in Paris, will continue to serve as the IT-Partner for the 2020 Olympics.
The hi-tech company that specialises in transactional services, unified communications, cloud, big data and cyber security services, entered into a global agreement with Google Cloud to address the digital transformation needs of enterprise customers in April.
The Olympic Games are watched across multiple platforms; mobile and online being the most prominent way it is consumed since Rio 2016. This requires a paradigm shift in the IT approach, from a ‘build each time’ to a ‘build once’ model, delivering some critical services over a cloud solution delivered together with other technology partners.
The resulting efficiencies and operating flexibilities make possible a consistent multichannel customer experience – anytime, anyplace, anywhere.
Atos has served as the worldwide IT-partner to the International Olympic Committee since 2001 and will be doing so until 2024. The 2020 Olympic Games will take place in Tokyo, Japan.
