Atos today opened a Technology Operations Center (TOC), with attendance from Nourdine Bihmane, CEO Tech Foundations, Atos, as well as Tony Estanguet, President of the Paris 2024 Organizing Committee.
Spanning a surface of 610m², the TOC is the control and command center for technology that supervises all 63 Olympic and Paralympic competition and non-competition venues. As the global IT partner, chief IT integrator of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and part of the Olympic Games Paris 2024 Technology team, Atos plays a key role in managing TOC operations related to IT services, coordinating more than 2,000 experts operating a 24/7 service throughout the competition.
The TOC opening completes the roadmap developed in 2020, heralding the initial operational phase with less than a year to go before kick-off. After 3 years of remote collaboration, the Group's 15 technology partners will finally be working together on-site.
Atos leverages the TOC to coordinate 140 Venue IT Managers across all Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 operational locations. The TOC will deploy a wide range if IT equipment to support the running of the competitions and delivery of results. Atos will also provide support to the 60 Venue Results Managers from the TOC.
This summer, 'Test Events' conducted for 18 sports at 11 competition venues helped the TOC and CTOC teams to assess Atos' systems and applications in real time – following tests held from the ITL. By July 2024, more than 250,000 hours of testing will have been completed.
"The opening of the TOC, the IT hub at the heart of Paris 2024, is a key milestone in the final sprint undertaken by Atos to deliver a more connected and technologically advanced Olympic and Paralympic Games for athletes, sports federations, the media and the general public. Paris 2024 will benefit from Atos' unique expertise, propelling technological innovation in the Olympic movement for more than three decades" said Bruno Marie-Rose, chief information and technology officer, Paris 2024.
