Called 4.co, the project will involve the development of new internal applications that tap Microsoft Azure, and the migration of existing operations to the cloud.
The office is set to open in early 2019 and will house around 30 engineers from Walmart and Microsoft. It will be situated in the same building as the former’s emerging technologies facility.
