Orange Business leads the Asia Pacific telecom cloud services market assessment by GlobalData

Date: 25 May 2021
Analyst: Alfie Amir


According to GlobalData, Orange Business is a leader in the Asian telecom cloud market driven by wide product capabilities combined with strong professional services and solid performance in the Asia-Pacific region.

"The strong cloud adoption in the region is pushing service providers to expand their capabilities to capture the high-growth opportunity. While competition is increasing, Orange edges out other players with its portfolio, multi-cloud play and in-region professional services, balancing cloud with security and network needs. But a real standout is now helping organizations see cloud as a platform. The latter encompasses strategies for virtual machines, containers and microservices. It requires tools like low-code/no-code and intelligent automation. In this domain, with its Cloud Adviser platform, Orange provides customers with visibility on cloud usage, costs and security, followed by actionable recommendations that can be further implemented to improve the offer. This is ideal for businesses not shifting workloads from one environment to the next, but driving technology with cultural changes for high-impact outcomes."
