Atos inaugurates its TOC

It’s a done deal. With less than 300 days to go before the event, French group Atos inaugurated the Paris 2024 Games Technology Operations Center (TOC) on Tuesday, October 3. With a surface area of 610 m², it is to serve as the technological operations command center for the 63 Olympic and Paralympic venues, both sporting and non-sporting. The TOC will also enable the 2,000 experts who will be mobilized for the duration of the Olympic and Paralympic competitions to be coordinated from a single location. After three years of preparation, the teams of the 15 technology partners of the Games are now physically coming together. From the TOC, Atos will control the 140 managers responsible for IT at all the venues, as well as the 60 managers in charge of communicating the results. Data will be transmitted in just 0.35 seconds, for use on the various communication channels. The TOC is one of three sites dedicated to technology for the Games, in addition to the Central Technology Operations Centre (CTOC) in Barcelona and the Integration Test Laboratory (ITL) in Madrid. Committed to the Olympic movement since the Barcelona Games in 1992, and to the Paralympic movement since 2001, Atos is a worldwide partner of the IOC within the TOP program. An international leader in digital transformation, and the European leader in cloud computing, cybersecurity and supercomputing, Atos employs 107,000 people worldwide. The Group generates annual sales of around 11 billion euros.
