Project Description

The International Olympic Committee (IOC), through its subsidiary Olympic Channel Services (OCS) requires the development and support of an Olympic Movement results and biographies database and associated applications. The project's Vision is to become the definitive reference for accurate athlete data, historical results and biographies, acting as a trusted partner that shares sports data to improve exposure and engagement and offers an opportunity to digitise sports data-related processes across the entire Olympic Movement, local organising committees of single and multi-sports events, and the Media.

The main deliverable of the SDW is a centralised data warehouse of sports results and athlete biographical data formed from the aggregation of multiple existing databases that are held and maintained by each contributor to the project.

In parallel to developing the warehouse will be the development of applications that can leverage this central repository to supply various functions to various stakeholders. This can include:

Widgets to enhance an athlete's social profile

Registration tools for events

Data analysis and presentation of sports statistical information
