Therefore, including insurance giant ICICI Lombard, Microsoft has won several major clients in India in recent years.

The partnership as of now could then boost Microsoft’s footprint in India significantly posing a bigger headache for Amazon and Google where Ambani explains Reliance Retail is the nation’s largest retailer that is working on a digital stack and creating a new commerce partnership platform in India thereby reaching tens of millions of merchants, consumers and producers where the Reliance Industries comes with plans to list both of Reliance Retail and Jio publicly.

As he further notes, the company plans to expand its blockchain network across India, and without revealing the specific details Ambani said Jio is building an IoT platform that controls at least one billion of the two billion IoT devices in India. Furthermore, he sees IoT as a $ 2.8 billion revenue opportunity for Jio.

Reliance has thereafter acquired 87.6% stake in Fynd as the Indian conglomerate is taking the seven-year-old Mumbai based start-up connecting brick and mortar retailers with online stores as also consumers for 2.95 billion Indian rupees as stated in a brief statement. Founded in 2012, Fynd helps offline retailers sell products to consumers directly through the online store enabling them to connect with other demand channels similar to third party e-commerce platforms Amazon India and Walmart owned Flipkart. 

With more than 600 brands, which include Nike, Raymond, Global Desi, and Being Human there are around 9000 stores connected through Fynd’s platform according to the co-founder of Fynd Harsh Shah as many brands use Fynd’s products to ramp up the sales on their respective eCommerce businesses. As it offers a wider selection of items and newer inventories to consumers, Fynd works directly with brands as well as faster delivery as Shah claims.
