Microsoft Premier Support helps The Hong Kong Jockey Club reduce costs while improving security and reliability
The Hong Kong Jockey Club is a non-profit organization that provides betting services for local horse racing, sports and entertainment in Hong Kong. It hosts approximately 700 horse races each year, a lottery, and overseas soccer events. The club, which has 26,000 employees and 23,000 members, is the largest taxpayer in Hong Kong and donates about HKD 1.6 billion (USD 200 million) annually to charity. By engaging Microsoft premier support to help develop and implement their new software solution, the HKJC was able to avoid growing maintenance and hardware costs, and deliver a reliable, secure platform that will sustain daily operations and support business both now and into the future.
