Walmart has opened an IT hub in Austin, Texas:
“A wall-size mural by local artist Mike Johnston pays homage to the original Alamo Drafthouse, Barton Springs, the downtown skyline and Willie Nelson, plus the red Ford pickup driven by Walmart founder Sam Walton. In the entry way, free community bikes hang on a rack for employees who want to take a spin outside.”
P.S. Walmart went to Austin because it wants to work with the best tech talent in the country. This is a major investment in Walmart’s systems.
