METRO Digital, Google Cloud and Wipro Limited

establish Cloud Competence Hub

METRO Digital today announced that it will collaborate with Google Cloud and Wipro Limited to provide training and support services for its newly established  Cloud Competence Hub, to boost cloud adoption and drive innovation across the wholesale and retail industries.

The 3 companies will share best-practices around cloud adoption and provide industry partners, e.g. global suppliers with access to training on key technologies and processes to enable a smooth transition to the cloud. METRO’s Cloud Competence Hub will be located in a number of cities across Germany and Romania. The first sites will be launched on the METRO Campus in Düsseldorf and Cluj in March 2021. The objective of the Cloud Competence Hub is to bring together innovative partners from across the wholesale and retail sector, to exchange ideas and work together to develop new approaches to transform the industry.

The collaboration is underpinned by 3 key pillars: cloud adoption, learning opportunities for METRO employees and the development of innovative wholesale and retail solutions. The 3 companies will come together to leverage the METRO store infrastructure to pilot new technologies for additional fulfillment models and checkout processes. Ideas will be brought to life through a series of hackathons covering a range of topics, aimed at employees of all 3 companies and other interested industry-related companies.
