Wal-Mart – IT??

Do you think of IT when you hear Wal-Mart? Most people don’t, but Wal-Mart has an emerging technologies office which makes sense when you consider that Amazon and other online retailers are likely taking a chunk out of its sales. Wal-Mart already has 2,000 technologists on staff in Silicon Valley, but it’s opening a new office in Plano, Texas, April 5 in a Common Desk coworking space in Granite Park.

I’m often asked, “Why shouldn’t I work with the big corporate real estate concerns in lieu of a boutique agency?” Actually, there are a lot of answers but my friend, Walt Batansky, CFO of Avocat Group, answered the biggest question in his eloquent essay entitled “Playing Russian Roulette with Corporate Real Estate”.
