Microsoft recently opened a new Microsoft Technology Center in Houston. Microsoft Technology Centers (MTCs) are located in over 40 locations around the world amd they offer collaborative environments and hands-on experiences where customers can try out the latest tech solutions driving business transformation, including technologies like Windows 10 and Surface Hub.
Houston’s new 12,600-square-foot facility is Microsoft’s first cloud-based MTC, with a small data center and prominent showcase of Microsoft Azure cloud platform and services. The center also operates as an Oil & Gas Center of Excellence, specializing in technologies designed for energy companies, many of which are based in Houston and the Gulf Coast region.
The Houston MTC also features partner solutions designed for the energy industry, including a camera from Bartec that mounts on a hardhat for hands-free video streaming.
“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,” said Nick Kritikos, national director of Microsoft Technology Centers in North America.
