Alibaba Cloud supports the Gangwon 2024 Winter Youth Olympic Games

Jakarta - Alibaba Group's digital technology and intelligence company, namely Alibaba Cloud, is supporting the Gangwon 2024 Winter Youth Olympic Games in South Korea with their latest cloud technology to support operational activities during the Olympics.
 
“Our ongoing partnership with Alibaba Cloud means we can continue to explore creative ways to increase audience and sports fan engagement around the world, while increasing operational efficiency using the latest cloud technologies ,” Managing Director of IOC Television and Marketing Services Anne-Sophie Voumard was quoted as saying from a press statement received in Jakarta, Thursday.
 
The Gangwon 2024 Winter Youth Olympic Games are now underway in South Korea's northernmost province on January 19-February 1, bringing together more than 1,900 young athletes aged 15-18 from 81 countries to participate in 15 sports, including Alpine Skiing and Curling.
 
As the first Winter Youth Olympics in Asia, the Gangwon 2024 Organizing Committee together with Alibaba Cloud launched several digital platforms to support operational activities, including a staff management platform and a ticket sales system to optimize efficiency.
 
To make the coordination of Gangwon 2024 organizers more effective, Alibaba Cloud created a Staff and Volunteer Management (SVM) portal. This SVM portal has a number of features, such as staff and volunteer training, announcement notifications via web-app and SMS, as well as schedule and attendance management.
 
Apart from that, Alibaba Cloud also provides a ticket sales system with computing services to support event management for 14 days.

Alibaba Cloud presented the first cloud -based digital flame that was "lit" along with the Olympic flame at the opening ceremony a few days ago. The digital flame on display is located in Olympic Park Gangwon, South Korea, and will burn throughout the Gangwon 2024 Winter Youth Olympic Games.
 
By integrating actual weather data, this digital fire background can change according to one of 32 predefined weather conditions in Gangwon. This capability is carried out through a content management system developed by Alibaba Cloud.
