The company said that it is designing Microsoft Cloud for Retail to give people the flexibility to adopt the capabilities they need to address their most pressing business needs.

“If 2020 taught us anything, it was that no business is resilient to everything. But those that had laid their digital tracks early were better positioned to recover, and in some cases, even speed ahead,” Bransten noted.
