One of the most interesting aspects of the IT risk management for the Olympic Games is that the Identity, Security and Risk Management solutions that Atos delivers at London 2012 use the same processes that enterprises every day around the world.
At London 2012, Atos is providing innovation in its data management techniques like never before. London 2012 is set to be the most connected Games yet with 30% more data processed than in Beijing to meet the growing demand for news as it happens.
London 2012 is the most technologically advanced Olympic Games in history, with dramatic changes in the way the Games will be broadcast and viewed.
