Walmart wants us to believe it’s turning into a tech company
I'm not sure I'd call facebook (media), Amazon (retail, logistics), uber (cabs) etc. technology companies now either. Yes, they are heavily technology-leveraged, but ultimately the machine under the covers matters less than what it achieves. Walmart, like many large companies, is identifying that significant new business opportunities can be released by better leveraging technology. Does that make it a "tech company"?
Its latest partnerships and new services show the retailer’s continued evolution toward becoming a tech-focused business.
