MICROSOFT FORMS 7-YEAR CLOUD DEAL WITH WALGREENS
Microsoft and Walgreens Boots Alliance said on Tuesday that the companies have formed a 7-year strategic partnership to develop new digital health technologies and healthcare delivery models. With this partnership, Microsoft also becomes the strategic cloud provider for Walgreens, and the pharmacy conglomerate plans to migrate the majority of the company's IT infrastructure onto Microsoft Azure. Walgreens said its retail, pharmacy and business services platforms, as well as certain legacy applications and systems, will move to Azure. The retailer also plans to roll out Microsoft 365 to more than 380,000 employees and stores. Meanwhile, Walgreens also said it will pilot in-store "digital health corners" starting this year using Microsoft technologies, and the companies will look into establishing joint innovation centers in key markets.
