Orange Business has been recognized as a "Leading Edge" player in the Microsoft Azure ecosystem in France in 2022 by market research firm PAC. The study evaluates Microsoft's leading partners based on more than 50 criteria to help decision-makers choose vendors for their migration to the Azure cloud and managed services.


Now, more than ever, enterprise buyers need support in selecting the right partner for their business. In this study, PAC ranks Orange Business among the top IT services providers on Microsoft Azure cloud solutions, and even ranks it in the top 3 on the "Market Strength" axis. This axis evaluates providers on their customer and market proximity, the quality of their vision for the Azure cloud and its alignment with Microsoft’s strategy, the investments and the quality of customer references.

Finally, it also highlights the specificity of Orange Business, in its ability to support its customers with a wide range of IT services and cloud infrastructure offerings (private, public, hybrid), while also integrating cybersecurity, compliance and sovereignty.
