Walmart moves to Microsoft's cloud

Walmart sign

"Walmart was never going to partner with Amazon for obvious reasons and Microsoft is the second largest provider of cloud solutions in the world", said Dusan Milosavljevic, an analyst at Berenberg bank. Microsoft will be ensuring it all goes as smoothly as possible in a bid to extend the partnership well beyond the first five years.

The partnership agreement lasts for five years and starts with a team of Walmart and Microsoft engineers working together to transition the retailer to Microsoft's ecosystem.

Though Walmart already uses Microsoft products and services for workloads across their company, this new partnership will see them use Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and data platform solutions.

Predix offers a range of IoT-focused apps, including flagship applications Predix Asset Performance Management and Predix ServiceMax, and is also open to customers to create their own services, with the likes of BP and Maersk regular users.

Internally, Walmart also is beginning a phased rollout of the Microsoft 365 workplace platform to provide its associates with productivity and sharing tools that foster collaboration and communication.

"Walmart is a pioneering retailer, committed to empowering its employees and delivering the best experience for its customers wherever they are". For Walmart, the company will be able to use Microsoft's AI tech to compete with Amazon on the future of retail. "The world's leading companies run on our cloud, and I'm thrilled to partner with Walmart to accelerate their digital transformation with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365". For Microsoft, Walmart using its cloud-services will give it a jumpstart Amazon's cloud services, which continues to be the firm's biggest rival.
