This edition of Digital Transformation Monthly covers the big moves supermarkets and stores are making to cope with changing consumer behaviours due to the Covid-19 pandemic, including the UK’s Iceland creating more than 3,000 new jobs to keep up with customer demand, and Walmart finally launching its hoped rival to Amazon Prime, Walmart+.
