(Reuters) – Canadian e-commerce platform Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) Inc is teaming up with top cloud companies including Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Oracle Corp (NYSE:ORCL) to help merchants streamline their business operations.

Business owners on the platform can now access Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tools including Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, Oracle NetSuite and Infor on the Shopify app.
