Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games
The Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games were the biggest Winter Games yet with 12 new medal events – the largest number of new events at any Olympic Winter Games.
The best athletes, tens of thousands of dedicated volunteers, millions of visitors, billions of viewers, complex logistics and critical IT security make the Olympic and Paralympic Games more than just a sporting event. It’s the world’s largest and none of it would be possible without technology.
The most digitally-enabled Winter Games of all time
We believe that the rise of mobility further will increase. More rich, real-time content needs to be available on an anytime, anywhere, any device basis. The Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games marked the first time that myInfo+ – a service used by print and broadcast media to check information including the competition schedule, medal ranking, weather reports and news feeds – was available on all mobile devices. Broadcasters also had access both in Sochi and remotely around the world to the Commentator Information System which gives them the latest competition information and scores to help colour their commentary.
The Partner of Choice
Sochi 2014 represented our seventh Games as the Worldwide IT Partner of the International Olympic Committee and fourth Paralympics as partner of the IPC. As with previous Games, Atos was responsible for leading the consortium of IT partners to design, build and operate the massive, mission-critical IT infrastructure and solutions that supported the Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
