What Is Industrial Revolution 4.0?

Industrial Revolution 4.0, also known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0, is a term that is applied towards the current trend of intelligent automation that is enabled by information technology, interconnectivity and data analytics.

 

Industry 4.0 employs a wide range of technologies to achieve those aims, such as mobile devices, Internet of Things, smart sensors, big data analytics, augmented reality, cloud computing, and more.

Microsoft Technology Centre Sydney : An Exclusive Tour!

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.

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.”

Microsoft Australia also announced a five-year strategic partnership with IT services giant DXC Technology, to transition both their Australian clients to the Microsoft Azure cloud services.

This is the first partnership of its kind worldwide, and will enable current and future DXC clients to better transition their workloads to Microsoft Azure in Australia.
