Orange Business Services increases cloud revenues

Following the acquisition of Basefarm in August and increasing its cloud revenues by 18% in the 1st half of 2018, Orange Business Services is pressing ahead with its growth strategy for the cloud computing market, the company said.

Orange Business Services has set up, beyond its own infrastructure, a major alliance strategy with other leaders in the industry. After partnering with Microsoft Azure, Orange Business Services can support its clients and manage their most critical applications on Amazon Web Services (AWS) with 100 experts trained on these technologies in France and globally.

With a total of 2,200 cloud experts, Orange Business Services is continuing to invest in its own cloud capabilities and plans to hire 300 employees in 2018 worldwide.

Within the Orange telecommunications group, the 22,000 employees of Orange Business Services are dedicated to serving French companies and multinationals in every continent, supporting them in their digital transformation on a daily basis. The integrated technologies range from new-generation networks (SDN/NFV) to Big Data, connected objects, cloud computing, unified collaboration and communication applications, and cyber security.
