BENTONVILLE (KFSM) — In retail as in life, connections are everything. On that premise, retail giant Walmart continues to invest in front-end and back-end technologies to drive efficiencies across its half-trillion-dollar global business.
Walmart U.S. CEO Greg Foran recently spoke to the media about some of the strategies behind the technology investments.
