News Facts 


 
--  Ameristar Casinos, Inc., an innovative casino gaming company, deployed
    Oracle GoldenGate's real-time data integration technology to help
    improve customer service.
--  Ameristar needed a single solution that could easily integrate data
    from heterogeneous sources, enabling real-time business intelligence
    to develop more targeted marketing initiatives.
--  A component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle GoldenGate enables
    real-time data integration of Ameristar's promotional and gaming data
    from 14 data sources across its 8 casino hotel properties, including
    the Aristocrat gaming and MGT promotional management platforms running
    on Microsoft SQL Server 2000 databases, into a central Teradata data
    warehouse.
--  The new Oracle GoldenGate solution has significantly reduced latency
    to the enterprise data warehouse, enabling Ameristar to use real-time
    customer data to provide timely, actionable information to its
    analysis and marketing teams and improve the overall customer
    experience.
--  With centralized information from all of its properties, Ameristar can
    more easily evaluate business opportunities, including marketing
    promotions, as well as have near real-time visibility into the
    financial status of the company using the data coming from the gaming
    systems.
--  Previously, Ameristar used a complicated replication solution that
    involved multiple vendors and an intrusive trigger-based data capture
    that required dedicated personnel to manage the replication solution.
--  Oracle GoldenGate delivers a flexible and reliable solution that is
    easy to deploy, manage and update, delivering significant savings in
    operational costs for Ameristar.
