Orange Business Services has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Samsung Electronics that will see the firms collaborate on developing tablets and services for the enterprise market.

The two firms said they will combine their ‘complementary services, ecosystems and expertise’ to co-develop ‘innovative solutions’ for businesses across Europe with specific emphasis on Belgium, France, Poland and Spain.

Specifically, they want to drive mobile working by integrating Orange services, such as device management, deployment services and customer support, within Samsung’s tablets.

Some vertical applications will be customised with the aim of developing tablets for key sectors, such as education and healthcare.

Security is another key area of focus, with Samsung KNOX ­ the Korea-based company’s end-to-end security solution that provides security enhancements from the hardware through to the application layer ­ integrated into Orange's Mobile Device Management solution.

“The tablet is revolutionising the enterprise market providing a new platform to rethink business processes,” said Thierry Bonhomme, CEO of Orange Business Services.

"The Orange Business Services - Samsung partnership enables enterprises to seize this opportunity and is part of our ambition to support companies' digital transformation."

Young Lee, Executive Vice President of Europe Telecommunications Operation at Samsung Electronics, said the partnership would provide business customers with ‘turn-key offerings that encompass devices, solutions, services, and connectivity to enhance productivity’.

“We will leverage the strengths and assets of our respective companies to bring the latest innovation to our enterprise customers,” he added.
