About Us

Innovation lies on two legs: technology and business.

Whilst technology has evolved amazingly fast over the last thirty years, business seems to have lagged. But with the Cloud Economy, this is changing. New business rules are proliferating, stimulated by legacy-free startups, and are inspiring a reinvention of many industries around the world beyond the IT.

This is to ease the process that we have created Lemon Operations, 12 years ago, with a continuous success since.

Headquartered in Paris, France, the company has worked as a global actor from day one. Our team of Business Makers is operating in four continents, 16 languages and run programs in 80 countries. Over the last two years, we have worked with more than 2000 companies, being IT channel partners, IT vendors, IT distributors, Independent Software Vendors, and with an increasing number of Industrial and Services Companies that are willing to translate their technology into business.

What is Lemon Operations? 

Lemon Operations is a Business Design and Enablement Company. Our job is to work with our customers in the definition or the refinement of their offers and their commercialization to benefit from the Cloud Economy.

We specialize in business involving advanced technologies such as Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Block Chain, 3D Design and Printing, among others.

Most of our work is sponsored by leading IT vendors.
Hence, we run our business enablement services in a technology context. 

When do customers need us? 

Some technology companies are looking to innovate on the business side. Other companies aim at evolving their business model with the support of advanced technologies.

Some companies want to enhance their business approach on a specific offer of theirs. Other are  searching for inspiration to keep pace with innovating ways of doing business.

We assist all of them on the path to leadership in the Cloud Economy.
