Microsoft opened a brand new Technology Centre in downtown Sydney last month, and we were one of the few that were given an exclusive tour. Join us for the Microsoft Technology Centre Sydney tour, and find out what it offers, and how it looks inside!
Microsoft Technology Centre Sydney
Located at 1 Martin Place, the new Microsoft Technology Centre Sydney represents a significant investment by Microsoft in New South Wales.
Taking over the entire floor of what was once the LinkedIn office in Sydney, it is home to a dedicated Microsoft team of seven experts and specialists, including a director, five technical architects with extensive experience in various sectors, and a technology manager.
Steven Worrall, Managing Director, Microsoft Australia, said; “This is a significant and important investment by Microsoft in the Australian market.
The Microsoft Technology Centre will help our customers accelerate their digital journeys by bringing together the right resources – people and technology – in one location to demonstrate what can be achieved in their organisation and then to work with them to bring that to life.
The Microsoft Technology Centre Sydney is the latest in a string of large investments by Microsoft int the Australian market, which included the establishment of two Azure data centre regions in Canberra, and a Microsoft Reactor in the Sydney Startup Hub.
What Does Microsoft Technology Centre Sydney Offer?
The new Microsoft Technology Centre Sydney gives Australian enterprises the opportunity to explore how to digitally transform themselves. It offers an envisioning theatre, an exploration showcase, an innovation factory, a social hub, a cybersecurity room, as well as workshop and boardrooms.
At the Microsoft Technology Centre Sydney, enterprises will have direct access to Microsoft experts, as well as strategy briefings, architecture design sessions, workshops, proof-of-concepts as well as hackathons.
NSW Government MOU
At its official launch, the NSW government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Microsoft Australia.
Under this MOU, NSW department leads would be invited to the new Microsoft Technology Centre Sydney, to explore how NSW government services can be digitally transformed.
Greg Wells, NSW Government Chief Information and Digital Officer, said, “This Memorandum of Understanding will allow us to bring Department Heads to the MTC where they can see what more can be achieved with digital services, improved efficiencies and good value solutions.
We expect there will be significant positive impact for citizens and businesses as well as operational efficiencies for Government.”
