Walmart, Microsoft

As part of the partnership, WalMart and Microsoft engineers collect Walmart to migrate to Azure at walmart.com and samsclub.com.

Retail giant WalMart said on Tuesday that it has established a strategic partnership with Microsoft to use cloud and artificial intelligence more widely, marking the arrival of Amazon’s main competitors. The five-year agreement will leverage Microsoft’s full range of cloud solutions, including Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365, to provide customers with a faster and easier shopping experience, said the Bentonville Arkansas-based company.

WalMart added that as part of the partnership, Wal-Mart and Microsoft engineers will work together to migrate most of walmart.com and samsclub.com to Azure. According to a Reuters report last month, although Wal-Mart is redoubled its e-commerce business to better compete with Amazon, Microsoft has been working to develop a technology that can eliminate store checkouts and checkout lines.

Microsoft’s technology is designed to be the largest automated trading model in the US market. Reuters reported that Windows software makers have also demonstrated sample technology to retailers around the world and negotiated possible cooperation with Wal-Mart.

Through partnerships, Wal-Mart plans to defend itself and enhance its online business from Amazon’s retail ambitions and data expertise.
