Microsoft celebrated the grand opening of a new Microsoft Technology Center in Houston this week, highlighting the company’s commitment to empowering customers worldwide with innovative technologies, solutions and expertise.
With nearly 40 locations around the world, Microsoft Technology Centers (MTCs) offer collaborative environments and hands-on experiences where customers can try out the latest cloud-powered solutions driving business transformation, including innovative technologies like Windows 10 and Surface Hub.
The centers feature interactive demos, immersive experiences, theater-like settings for envisioning scenarios and tailored sessions for building solutions that meet customer goals. They also offer strategy briefings, proof-of-concept workshops and architectural design sessions, with access to partner technologies and time to try out the latest tools in cloud productivity, mobility, secure computing and other business needs.
“The MTCs in general are very customer-centric and solution-oriented,” said Nick Kritikos, national director of Microsoft Technology Centers in North America.
“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.”
The centers enable local customers to work firsthand on creating technology solutions that will optimize and grow their business and, in turn, fuel innovation and the local economy. All Microsoft-managed commercial and public sector customers can use MTCs to envision how Microsoft solutions can allow them to get their work done across different locations and devices.
