IT service provider FPT Software Europe and materials manufacturer Covestro entered into long-term partnership for transformation project.
Essen, Germany – FPT Software Europe, a subsidiary of FPT Software – leading technology and IT service provider headquartered in Vietnam, has recently announced its strategic partnership with Covestro AG (Covestro). As a leading global manufacturer of polymer materials, Covestro is included in DAX stock market index among major German companies trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
Entering a multi-year agreement with Covestro, FPT Software Europe is leveraging its in-depth experience, comprehensive services and best-shore model to support the DAX-listed group in the migration of 290 applications to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform, thereby accelerating its digital transformation journey.
Starting signal for the next generation of IT infrastructure
Within the next few years, FPT Software Europe will accompany Covestro’s entire transformation process. Starting with the assessment of customer requirements, the cloud experts analyze the chemical giant’s legacy systems; design and implement solutions adapted to the AWS infrastructure. FPT Software Europe’s core tasks in the migration process include refactoring legacy applications to preserve their functionality in the new ecosystem while leveraging the full potential of the new platform for the customer. By moving to AWS, Covestro AG is setting itself the goal of creating greater security for productive systems and business-critical workloads. Furthermore, by cloud migration, the company achieves additional benefits such as on-demand scalability of resources, increased productivity, and reduced capital and operating costs. With the move to the cloud, Covestro is laying the foundation for further digital transformation initiatives.
