FPT, in the collaboration with SCSK – a global IT service company based in Japan, delivered insightful perspectives on Digital Transformation to over 20 Japanese top executives at a seminar in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam.

To help accelerate the digitization of businesses, FPT and SCSK jointly held an exclusive seminar under the theme of “Digital Transformation” for Japanese companies in different industries ranging from Utilities, Retail, Finance to Information Technology. This one-day event features presentations and roundtable, discovering digital transformation solutions and initiatives designed for medium-sized and big Japanese companies to optimize their businesses.

Presenting about the global trends and best practices, FPT Chairman Truong Gia Binh emphasized: “The most crucial factor of digital transformation is visionary. It is vital to determine if the leaders, the organization or technology capabilities are ready”. A success story of DuPont – the world’s leading chemical company – with impressive achievements in doubling revenue, fourfold increasing in profit and scaling up globally rapidly was illustrated, showing how digital transformation takes place and benefits businesses considerably.

Following the sharing sessions is the roundtable discussing opportunities and challenges in Digital Transformation. Participants were open to share about the main challenges of digitization, which mostly are: poor expertise to lead business initiates, vague strategy and organizational resistance to change. FPT and SCSK’s strategies in providing comprehensive digital transformation solutions for businesses also drew attention. FPT affirmed to collaborate with SCSK to develop innovative, efficient and agile solutions, helping to accelerate Japanese companies on the Digital Transformation journey.

“In October 2018, FPT and SCSK signed a MOU through which the two sides will cooperate in supporting the overseas expansion of Japanese companies. Today, we invited our dearest customers to Vietnam to learn more about FPT, digital transformation strategies and the potential of Vietnam’s IT industry”. Said Mr. Tooru Tanihara – President & COO of SCSK. “We wish to help our customers better comprehend both companies’ capabilities and solutions in digital transformation by this seminar”.

FPT’s previous cooperation in digital transformation with Japanese giants including Toppan Printing and ISE Foods has proven FPT as a valuable partner in adopting digital transformation into their business activities. The company has demonstrated its capabilities and serious commitment towards digital transformation by developing and introducing new products and solutions: aka products (akaWork, akaBot, akaTrans, akaChain), FPT.AI, Open FPT, etc. which apply next-gen technologies on platforms of Cloud, Mobile, Analytics/Big Data and Social. Recently, the company has established a subsidiary offering additional services towards the Digital Transformation strategy.
