Nassima will promote Orange Business Services strategy around Trusted Cloud Solutions, driving year-on-year growth. She will help to further underscore the Orange Business Services position as a significant player in digitalization, mainly linked to the trusted cloud, both in France and internationally.
Nassima comes with a wealth of experience gleaned as a chief engineer and specialist in electronics and signal processing. Previously, she was Innovation Advisor at the Cabinet of the Minister of the Armed Forces to Florence Parly, French Minister of the Armed Forces, and involved in various projects around AI, data policy and the cloud. Nassima has also held positions in the Directorate General of Armaments (DGA) and the Budget Directorate in Bercy, France.
Data is at the heart of the Orange Business Services global agenda. As a network-native digital services company, we operate, integrate and orchestrate many services on trusted infrastructures to ensure the safe use of data. Cloud technologies can no longer be addressed simply at a national level. It is a global issue. Trust has become a crucial element within the cloud environment, given the increasing fragmentation of digital ecosystems.
Given Nassima’s vast experience in various ministerial cabinets, she is ideally placed to help position Orange Business Services as a major player within the trusted cloud ecosystem and, at the same time, supporting customers’ ongoing digital transformation programs.
“I am excited to join Orange Business Services at a time when there are high stakes in France and across Europe. Cloud has now become pivotal to the entire economy,” explains Nassima. “Increasing technological innovation raises many fundamental questions from geopolitical, legal, and economic perspectives. This is where the link between cloud, trust, and trusted data comes in. We must reconcile digital trust and innovation to satisfy customer needs.”
