FPT aims to become global leader in digital transformation

Vietnam’s largest IT services company in a number of cooperative deals to promote digital transformation.

FPT, the largest IT services company in Vietnam, has been selected as a digital transformation service provider in Carlsberg’s Manufacturing Execution System (MES), helping the brewer optimize the manufacturing process and maximize production output. FPT expects to become one of the global leaders in digital transformation services, according to a company statement.

Airbus and FPT signed MOU of digital transformation.

Corporate digital transformation has been trending upwards in recent years and is forecast to grow at a rate of more than 18 per cent by 2025 and become a $2.279 trillion global industry. Thanks to growth in the digital transformation sector, FPT’s software exports will maintain growth of 25-35 per cent over the next five years and account for 50 per cent of total revenue.

Client Successes

One of FPT’s initiatives to achieve its goal is the development of partnerships with strategic international clients to jointly develop Internet of Things (IoT) platforms and smart factories. Partnership programs have also been demonstrably successful, with collaborations between FPT and General Electric in developing the internet industry on the GE Predix platform and with Siemens in joining forces to push forward the expansion of MindSphere.

One such client is a multinational healthcare service and device company headquartered in the US. The platform provided by FPT allows patients to access, track and manage their assessments, monitor their schedules, and input dosage data. The solutions effectively enhanced the client’s business strategy and value offering.

In their Coca-Cola partnership, FPT offers appropriate digital solutions to promote Coca-Cola Vietnam’s production. 

Developing future leaders

To ensure a highly motivated team and peak performance and develop world-class leaders, FPT invests heavily in its people at all levels. It possesses the largest software human resources pool in Vietnam. Its young engineers, with a median age of just 27, can communicate in English, Japanese, French and other languages, are eager to learn, and can quickly adapt to clients’ processes, and possess the large number of certificates on the latest IoT platforms, such as AWS (500 certificates), GE Predix (200), Skywise (40), and MindSphere (200).

FPT cooperates closely with a host of reputable domestic and overseas universities and leverages the best from its very own FPT University. The first corporately-owned university in Vietnam, FPT University is expected to be an important base for FPT’s talent pool and serves as a cradle for intermediate and senior technical professionals. The company has introduced digital transformation and artificial intelligence (AI) into training programs at FPT University and other universities in Vietnam.

As the leading IT services company in Vietnam, listed in The Outsourcing Global 100 of IAOP, and with experience from 30 years in business, FPT has established its expertise in big data analytics, AI, IoT, and digital transformation not only in Vietnam but across the region. These initiatives all form part of a greater ecosystem aimed at connecting clients with FPT and its many subsidiaries. This approach combines business acumen with technological expertise to accelerate the passage from idea to implementation of total digital transformations. As Vietnam rises through the ranks of emerging markets, FPT will continue to help customers along their digital transformation journeys.

Established on September 13, 1988, FPT has been a pioneer in IT and telecommunications for 30 years, bridging the world of technology to Vietnam and putting Vietnamese technology intelligence on the world map.

FPT is now a leading IT services company and a groundbreaker in the field of the research and development of new technologies. It partners with major corporations such as General Electric, Siemens, Amazon, and Airbus to create the most advanced technological platforms in Industry 4.0. It is the largest private-sector ICT enterprise in Vietnam, with more than 33,000 employees in 33 countries and territories.
