Atos Origin will provide the IT systems for the London Olympics in 2012.
Atos signed a contract extension with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to provide systems integration to Vancouver’s 2010 winter games and the 2012 summer games, before London’s victory was announced.
The company currently has teams on-site in both Turin and Beijing preparing and testing Olympic IT systems for the 2006 winter and 2008 summer Games.
Atos Origin is responsible for developing, running and securing key information systems for the games, including accreditation, workforce management, medical services, sport entries and athletes' qualification.
Atos is also responsible for the management of the Olympics technology operations centre, co-ordination of the venues, help desk services, and the security of the games IT infrastructure.
