Atos Extends Contract with the IPC

Atos, an international IT services company, has announced an extension to its current partnership with the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) to include the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

Under the agreement between Atos and the IPC, Atos will further contribute to the development of the Paralympic Movement by designing, building and running its new website, www.paralympic.org, which aims to become the worldwide information source for the Paralympic Movement. Atos will also continue to collaborate with the IPC and engage in joint activities to support the International Paralympic Foundation.

Atos confirmed that, with just over one year to go to the start of the London 2012 Games, the technology it is delivering on behalf of London 2012 and together with the other technology partners is on-track and on-schedule.

“We are delighted to announce that a year ahead of the London Games, we have signed a new contract with the IPC to help them better promote the Paralympic sports and athletes,” said Patrick Adiba, CEO Atos for Iberia, Olympics and Major Events. “We are absolutely committed to continuing our long-standing collaboration with the IPC and are delighted to have this new opportunity to further support the International Paralympic Foundation.”

Atos has been a key technology provider for the Paralympic Movement since 2002 and became the official Worldwide Information Technology Partner for the IPC in 2008. The contract extension announced today with the IPC extends the longstanding relationship between the two organisations.

“Our website is now our most important communication channel to promote Paralympic sports, athletes and news to a global audience,” said Sir Philip Craven, IPC President. “We are delighted that we can count on Atos, which has the technology expertise as well as the knowledge of the Paralympic Movement, to help us redesign and update our website to meet and exceed the needs of sports fans in 2012.

“Our aim is to make www.paralympic.org, which will incorporate www.paralympicsport.tv, the global hub of all news, video and information relating to Paralympic Sport. We are very pleased with Atos’ engagement in future joint fundraising activities, which aims at supporting the IPC development initiatives and help to further advance the whole Paralympic Movement.”

Atos will design, build and run the new website – www.paralympic.org – which is due to go live in autumn 2011. The new website will use the latest technologies to engage visitors and provide them with the latest information on Paralympic games.

Since 2005 when London was announced host city for the 2012 Games, Atos has been working with the London 2012 technology team and the other technology partners to design, build and test the immense IT infrastructure that will make the Games happen. With just over one year to go, the majority of the technology has been delivered. Key accomplishments include a volunteer portal, a fully operational technology Lab, an equipment Deployment Centre, myInfo+ and a Commentator Information System.

CIO Assessment Program Launched by Click Consulting

Click Consulting has created a new service helping small businesses understand the way that technology fits inside of their business, the CIO Assessment. After looking at the way technology was treated inside of their own client’s businesses, Click Consulting decided that they had to develop a system of connecting business goals and IT so that technology was no longer overhead but rather a driver of business.

“In today’s climate of tighter spending and shrinking margins, IT can become a true driver of business growth if the appropriate technologies are in place,” said Jeff Lenning, president, Click Consulting. “Our CIO Assessment program helps companies analyze their current situations and makes recommendations based on each company’s unique requirements. We keep up with the latest technologies so that our clients can focus on running their businesses.”

Most small businesses spend their time thinking about their business, not the technology that runs it. At the same time, most managed services companies just maintain the IT infrastructure without thinking about the business it exists within. Few IT service firms ever work with small businesses from a business perspective; instead everything becomes a maintenance issue so growth never occurs as a result of IT spending. Click Consulting decided that this downward spiral needed to stop.

The CIO Assessment process starts with in-depth interviews of major stakeholders and decision makers at the company to understand the business choices that are being made. Then, after a deep inspection of the technology currently used at the company, Click Consulting delivers a report complete with suggestions about how to better align technology and the business. The assessment becomes a roadmap, helping guide the growth and profits of the company over time.
