Microsoft opens Technology Centre in Sydney
Microsoft has opened a new Technology Centre in Sydney aimed at helping local enterprise and government customers accelerate their digital transformation.
The new facility houses a dedicated team of experts tasked with working with enterprise and the public sector to explore a customer’s unique challenges and show them how technology from the company and its partners can help digitally transform their operations.
It contains an envisioning theatre, an exploration showcase for Microsoft and partner solutions, a cybersecurity room, workshop and boardroom areas, and other dedicated rooms.
The facility is modelled after the 47 other Microsoft Technology Centres in operation globally, according to Microsoft Australia Managing Director Steve Worrall.
“The MTC is where we have a dedicated team of specialists who can reveal to Australian enterprise and government exactly how state-of-the-art technology from Microsoft and our partners can help digitally transform their operations and opportunities,” he said.
“Working closely with enterprise and the public sector, we can explore an enterprise’s unique challenges, canvas the opportunities — and hopefully extend their horizons so that organisations are optimised for today and prepared for tomorrow.”
Microsoft has already arranged to use the new facility to help department leads of the NSW Department of Finance, Services and Innovation map and accelerate the state government’s digital transformation journey as part of the agreement with the department signed earlier this week.
The company has also entered a five-year strategic partnership with DXC Technology aimed at using the new centre to help transition major Australian enterprise and public sector clients to Microsoft Azure.
Over the last two years, Microsoft Australia has also launched a new National Skills Program and Microsoft Traineeship Program in Australia, opened two new data centres in Canberra focused on serving public sector and national critical infrastructure computing, and increased its workforce to support its growing client base.
