Microsoft and Walgreens join forces to take on Amazon in health care

Paul R. La Monica / CNN Business:   Microsoft and Amazon, the two most valuable companies in the world, are already competing for supremacy in cloud computing. Now Microsoft has its sights set on battling Amazon in the lucrative health care market as well. Microsoft (MSFT) announced a partnership with Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) Tuesday. As part of the deal, Microsoft will become Walgreen’s new cloud provider. The two said they will also work on solutions to lower health care costs.
