This IDC Perspective describes how the International Olympic Committee's (IOC's) multiyear journey to the cloud has been enabled by Atos, with a focus on project activities over past two years after the Rio Games. Since the Salt Lake City Games in 2002, individual solutions for cloud, analytics, mobility, or social technologies have been implemented at various times by Atos to support the overall digital transformation of the Olympics. But in 2018, PyeongChang, South Korea, will be the first Olympic Games where Atos is delivering all applications fully over the cloud for the IOC.
"You may be wondering, if your organization does not run Olympic-size sporting events, is any of this case study relevant," notes Gard Little, research director, Digital Transformation: The Professional Services Opportunity, "But Atos discovered that the lessons learned are applicable to all organizations moving applications and infrastructure to the cloud, not just sporting organizations."
