The Orange Business public cloud platform Flexible Engine has been recognized as "A Strong Performer" by Forrester in its report "The Forrester Wave™: Public Cloud Development and Infrastructure Platforms in Europe, Q1 2023." The report evaluated 13 significant public cloud platform providers in Europe based on 30 criteria, with a focus on data sovereignty and compliance with European regulations.

Orange Business stood out on the Strategy criteria, scoring highly on Product Vision and on the Offering axis, with excellent results for its core services portfolio. Forrester noted that "the vendor's product vision outpaces some of its main European competitors, given the increasing number of PaaS services available, and its sovereign offering differentiates it from the hyperscalers."

According to Forrester, "The Flexible Engine solution provides a complete set of services and tools to support native application development, while its professional services offering helps customers refactor applications."

Flexible Engine is part of the new Orange Business Digital Infrastructure, which combines their unique capabilities in connectivity, cloud and cybersecurity to provide end-to-end support and a future-ready foundation to embrace innovation.
