Accelerate cloud transformation and end-to-end adoption of Azure at speed

Microsoft Azure offers a wide range of products and services to the retail industry. It aims to connect experiences across the end-to-end shopper journey with integrated and intelligent capabilities. By bringing the various data sources across the retail value chain, retailers will realize the true value of their data by enriching core business processes and turning data into actionable insights. Microsoft Azure for retail allows organizations to adopt the capabilities of organizations to address business needs and create an intelligent supply chain to reimage the business model. 

The databases and storage services make it possible to connect and combine data silos, creating a digital feedback loop. The data is then synthesized to drive improved business outcomes ranging from customer demand, commerce, payments, and distribution. Advanced analytics and AI solutions can help retailers gain actionable intelligence, develop intelligent applications, and support technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, and mixed reality.
