Delivering the London 2012 games became one of the largest single ICT achievement stories of the 21st Century. The UK eco-system of suppliers and partners diligently worked to ensure the experience was the most digitally enabled games ever and demonstrate the strength of the UK ICT profession and community worldwide. This IET special interest publication, Delivering London 2012: ICT Enabling the Games, identifies and demonstrates the innovation, legacy, best practice and lessons learned from the ICT delivery of the Games and provides recommendations for future projects and programmes. The content of the publication provides an excellent overview starting with the ODA and LOCOG papers setting the scene for the London 2012 Games overall programme, followed by technical papers detailing the fixed, wireless, mobile and web platforms implemented, to deliver the ICT infrastructure and services required, finishing with technology to maximise GB athletes performance at the games with a legacy for technology reuse into the eHealth market. The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games LOCOG), The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), ICT Knowledge Transfer Network (ICT KTN) and UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) worked together to facilitate this IET special interest publication and each organisation is pleased to provide a foreword for such an important publication.
