Walmart plans to globally deploy Flipkart’s expertise in progressive web applications that are aimed at a seamless shopping experience even with low bandwidth and cheaper phones besides its data analytics knowhow.
The retail giant, which is betting on India’s technology talent, will wait until the process of absorbing the ecommerce company is well underway.
“I am excited to start working with Flipkart’s tech team. We treat every acquisition, regardless of size, the same where we try and leave them alone for a year, just to make sure the integration goes well. And then we wait for them to ask and then we start working with them”, said Jeremy King, executive vice president and chief technology officer at Walmart.
