“’The Olympic DNA runs through our veins: as a team, we constantly adapted our operations to complete the necessary testing to ensure safe and secure Olympic Games.”
We make it happen
Safely and securely:
200,000 hours of testing performed to ensure the reliability of our digital services
Reducing the number of physical servers by 50% compared to previous editions
Adapting to frictionless methods to stay safe and ensure the technology delivery of Tokyo 2020
Leveraging on our sustainable cloud model: Build Once, Use Many Times!
Tokyo 2020 will be the first summer edition of the Olympic Games fully delivered over the cloud. As lead technology integrator, we migrated all critical systems to the cloud, limiting the environmental footprint and building a replicable model for future editions.
Our team are working from three different locations:
The Technology Operations Centre (TOC) is the nerve center for technology at Games’ time. It monitors and controls 24/7 the IT systems that deliver the results from all the Olympic sports competitions to the world’s media in real-time.
The Central Technology Operations Center (CTOC) in Barcelona remotely supports the Tokyo Technology Operations Center (TOC) to manage overall IT operations with 24/7 supervision during Games’ time.
The Integration Testing Lab (ITL) located in Madrid manages all the system testing of the Olympic Games. We test and test and test because there’s no second chances at Games’ time!
