Under the agreement, the two companies say they will work together to deliver new solutions in the areas of modernisation and migration, data analytics, innovation and security, “resulting in new products and services to fast-track customers’ journeys to the cloud”.
As part of the agreement, a dedicated Cloud Centre of Excellence will be built on AWS, designed to coordinate joint development of an extensive training and certification program for more than 3,000 Orange Business Services cloud, cybersecurity, digital and data experts.
“Enterprises will now have access to a one-stop-shop for all their Orange and AWS requirements through their trusted point of contact. Orange has deep strengths across consultancy, cybersecurity and connectivity through to cloud native applications,” said Orange.
“This removes multivendor complexity for Orange customers and allows them to speed up their digital transformation and explore future innovations that enhance cloud applications on AWS.”

“Our challenge is to develop and operate with limited staff and resources. Meanwhile, we strive to provide our members with the most innovating trading service: highly efficient trading in a secure environment, compliant with strict regulation. Working with Orange Business Services and AWS, NowCP can now focus even more on driving business value.”
