Virginia Gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe visited MicroTech yesterday, July 25th, for a tour of the Headquarters facility including the Innovation & Integration Center (I2C) and the Knowledge Fusion Center. President and CEO of MicroTech, Tony Jimenez, led McAuliffe on the tour of MicroTech’s latest innovative products and solutions.
MicroTech’s CTO, Roger Channing, and Senior Vice President, Innovation & Integration Group (I2G), Tim Dioquino, showed McAuliffe the I2C which was built as a research and development lab as well as a showroom of cutting-edge technology including MicroTech’s own products and solutions. The center opened in July 2011 and was expanded in early 2013 to allow for a more collaborative environment for the Innovation and Integration Group’s subject matter experts and business development teams.
During the tour of the I2C, MicroTech’s cloud computing solutions including the MicroKloud and MicroPodd were highlighted and their capabilities demonstrated. The MicroKloud appliance is MicroTech’s newest product which is an affordable turn-key solution for easy access to the cloud. McAuliffe also had the opportunity to see MicroTech’s Knowledge Fusion Center which showcases the company’s social media analytic capabilities. McAuliffe was impressed by the big data management solution, asking several questions about the broad array of utilization.
“It was great to have the opportunity to show Mr. McAuliffe our technologies and what we are bringing to market. It’s important that he knows what Technology Integrators who serve both public and private sectors, like MicroTech, are doing especially since we are headquarted in Virginia. Clearly he is focused on the current business environment and the associated challenges facing companies in the state,” said Jimenez.
Also accompanying Jimenez and McAuliffe on the tour were Dr. Gerald Gordon, President and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority; Michel Zajur, CEO and founder of the Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Dr. Jorge Ribas, President and CEO of the Mid-Atlantic Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
