PROS to Showcase B2B Solutions for Managing Big Data at Microsoft Global Energy Forum 2012

HOUSTON, January 30,2012 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a world leader in pricing and revenue management software, today announced its participation in the Microsoft Global Energy Forum scheduled for Jan. 31, 2012, at Houston’s Westin Galleria Hotel. The company plans to provide demonstrations of how PROS solutions on Microsoft platforms help solve business challenges for global energy companies.

Chemical and oil-refining companies around the globe are also looking for new opportunities to address the business and technical challenges of analyzing vast amounts of data. As a member of the Microsoft ChemRA initiative, PROS is working with Microsoft to help energy companies manage these complex issues.

“Few industries are as dynamic, complex and global as the energy business,” said PROS Chief Marketing Officer Tim Girgenti. “These organizations rely on big data to identify buying patterns and behaviors for their business-to-business customers. Our interoperability with Microsoft® SQL Server® provides energy companies with insights into these trends, which inspires confidence and drives business agility. As the energy capital of the world – and the home of PROS headquarters – we are pleased that Houston has once again been chosen by Microsoft to be the host city for this important industry event.”

Energy companies have specialized requirements for managing big data,” said Herain Oberoi, director, product management, at Microsoft. “PROS has met Microsoft’s rigorous integration standards to help companies harness the power of SQL Server to meet those requirements. We are excited to have PROS showcase its solutions at this year’s Global Energy Forum.”
