Steven Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President of the original equipment manufacturer division at Microsoft Corporation today announced the opening of the Microsoft Software and Services Excellence Center (SSEC).

The main purpose of the center is to advance the potential of cloud computing across devices, in the data center and within new industries-all topics Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, addressed when he visited Taiwan last year.

Moreover, Microsoft will license patents from its industry-leading portfolio and share its software development expertise with academic and R&D institutes in Taiwan to help strengthen the software and services technologies for the Taiwan Information and Communication Technology (ICT) ecosystem.
