Earlier this week, Microsoft opened a new Microsoft Technology Center (MTC) in Houston, Texas. This is one of many MTCs around the world that offers customers hands-on experiences of the software giant’s latest offerings.
These offerings include the likes of Microsoft Azure, Windows 10, and Surface Hub. Folks who use the MTCs should come across several interactive demos that provide an immersive experience that shows off the latest in what Microsoft has to offer in the enterprise.
Security, mobility, and cloud productivity are some of the things many folks look forward to, and Microsoft is hoping to tap into their minds with unequaled tools and devices.
“The MTCs in general are very customer-centric and solution-oriented. Customers come to the MTC not to buy something or get sold something, but to understand how they can transform their business using Microsoft’s innovative technology and do it as a partner,” according to Nick Kritikos, Microsoft’s Director of MTCs in North America.
We should point out that this new MTC in Houston is the company’s first cloud-based MTC since it features a small data center. It is clear that a heavy focus will be placed on Azure along with its related services.
It also features something called the “Oil & Gas Center of Excellence.” Basically, folks can visit this section to learn about different oil and gas technologies designed specifically for companies that are invested in the energy market.
Microsoft has over 40 MTCs located around the world, and we expect all of them to be cloud-based in the months and years to come.
