Technology 'sorted' for Olympic Games

Technology is unlikely to be a major issue during the Olympic Games, with the majority of systems already in place to allow people to work from home.

This is the view expressed by Mark Bramwell, CIO of the Wellcome Trust. Speaking at a HP networks event in London, Mr Bramwell explained that the trust is already set up to deal with any potential technology issues and that the group has adopted a “common sense” approach to the issue.

PCAdvisor reported him as saying: “My personal view is that the Olympics could turn out to be a non-event from a technology perspective. Logistics and transport are going to be a bigger problem than the technology. Rightly or wrongly, I'm not anticipating it being an issue.”

He added that the network at the trust will have “sufficient bandwidth to support streaming and internet access, but the policy will stipulate reasonable use”.

The biomedical charity also has systems in place to allow for remote working: “The technical solutions are already in place to allow people to work from home … they have been tested and they have been proven. They get tested every year because of our disaster recovery and remote working policies.”
