Partnership will help enterprise and public sector clients in Australia migrate to Microsoft Azure
Microsoft and US-based IT provider DXC Technology have set up the latest Microsoft Technology Centre (MTC) in Sydney, Australia. The partnership will also help enterprise and public sector clients in Australia migrate to Microsoft Azure.
According to a blog post by Mark Leigh, general manager of Commercial Partners at Microsoft Australia, the multi-million-dollar investment will showcase the Microsoft technology ecosystem as well as well as solutions from 30 partners.
“Our dedicated MTC team will work alongside partners and enterprise customers from the private and public sector to create immersive experiences that reveal the potential of digital transformation,” said Leigh.
DXC Technology has signed a five-year strategic arrangement with Microsoft which will support both companies’ customers as they transition to Azure, allowing them to make use of the growing range of cloud services.
“Working together, Microsoft and DXC will be able to accelerate the migration of banking, commercial and public sector workloads to Azure, positioning enterprises to benefit from the security, trust, resilience and performance of a global cloud,” said Leigh. “We think the MTC is a game changer – as is this partnership with DXC Technology.”
Enterprises invited to the MTC will follow a specific process that will cover planning, preparation and execution and it is expected that around 400 firms will benefit from the project.
Each business can choose from a range of options, bearing in mind their own priorities to accelerate digital transformation. These options include strategy briefings, architecture design sessions, data centre tours, workshops and hackathons.
“We’re looking forward to working alongside partners at the MTC to create the lightbulb moments that will lead to business transformation for enterprise in Australia,” said Leigh.
