The Rainmaker Group, a world leader in automated profit optimization software and services to the gaming hospitality and multifamily housing industries, announced deepening ties with Microsoft Corp. that will result, in part, in gaming hospitality operators’ ability to extend enterprise data beyond the revenue management boundary.

The benefits to operators of rich data in Rainmaker’s revolutionSM Profit Optimization Suite, combined with Microsoft’s robust reporting capabilities, were included in discussions during Rainmaker’s one-day visit to the Atlanta-based Microsoft Technology Center (MTC) earlier this month. 

“Five of our team spent a day at the Microsoft Technology Center for a strategy briefing as it relates to the gaming hospitality market,” said Tammy Farley, executive vice president and principal with The Rainmaker Group. “The briefing included SQL server analytics and the business intelligence stack.  This technology opens the door for gaming hospitality operators to take the rich data in our applications, combined with Microsoft’s robust reporting capabilities, and exploit data throughout the enterprise beyond the revenue management boundary to include budget data, occupancy data and more.” 

“Coming to the MTC strengthened the valuable collaborative relationship we have with Rainmaker by giving them access to training resources, in-depth technical knowledge, and firsthand experience with the high level of investment Microsoft makes as a company in the success of our partners,” said Bill Pierson, director of the Atlanta Microsoft Technology Center.

In June 2008, Rainmaker released its popular revolution and revolution LRO Profit Optimization Suites on the Microsoft software platform, providing clients with the flexibility via Microsoft's .NET Framework architecture to self host or have Rainmaker host their applications in its secure SunGard hosting services.
