In the category “Managed Public Cloud Services for Large Accounts” the analysts named us a “Rising Star” positioned closely on the Leader Quadrant. This is justified by the clear development of Orange Business Services (OBS) into a global player with a comprehensive range of end-to-end IT and integration services – and The unbelievable Machine Company (*um) as a subsidiary and yet independent provider with pronounced expertise in IoT, cloud, data and AI, application development and cyber security.

ISG’s analysts initially assess our Managed Service competencies as strengths: “In Germany, *um offers 24/7 services for Internet applications as well as professional operation, expansion and continuous optimization of the system landscape. Customers receive profound support and the associated monitoring by a qualified team that embraces agile operating methods such as DevOps and Kanban.

Furthermore, our cloud partnerships and our focus on analytics are mentioned: “OBS and *um are AWS Advanced Consulting Partners as well as Cloud Solution Providers for Microsoft and Azure and offer corresponding Managed Services. Analytics and data science competencies are of particular importance to numerous customers.”

In particular, it is also emphasized that “reality and vision go hand in hand” and that Orange Business Services relies on proven experts for its managed services as well as its cloud and analytics consulting services in Germany: “*um established a reputation as a long-standing specialist in the market. OBS has also developed a well-founded, production-oriented roadmap based on the acquisition of IT service management companies.”
