Expert system technology – updated for the age of AI.

Rainbird is comprised of two components which are licensed individually. The Rainbird Authoring Platform (the builder) and the Rainbird Cognitive Reasoning Engine (the runtime).

The Rainbird Authoring Platform (Builder)

The Rainbird Authoring Platform comprises a suite of tools which are used to build and test systems. It is made available on a subscription, Software as a Service (SaaS) basis alongside the Rainbird Developer Programme which provides training and accreditation.

When working with Rainbird, organisations either put a project team on the programme (effectively creating an internal Rainbird Centre of Excellence) or work alongside a Rainbird Accredited Partner who can support them in their project.

Rainbird Cognitive Reasoning Engine (Runtime)

The Rainbird cognitive Reasoning Engine is the runtime service responsible for powering completed projects when they have gone live. It is also made available on a subscription, Software as a Service (SaaS) basis*.

In addition to gaining rights to use the platform commercially, each subscription agreement also includes full technical support.
