HANOI, Vietnam - November 28, 2023 - Yokogawa Electric Corporation (“Yokogawa”, TOKYO: 6841), a leading provider of industrial automation and test and measurement solutions, and FPT Software Company Limited (“FPT Software”), a global technology and IT services provider, announce a global supplier framework agreement for the development and deployment of digital transformation (DX) services to strengthen operational technology (OT) – information technology (IT) convergence in the industrial sector. The partnership will help accelerate the growth of Yokogawa's DX portfolio of applications and services while helping FPT Software expand its market reach. The agreement is in effect, and the coverage is worldwide.
Under this agreement, Yokogawa and FPT Software will cooperate in the planning and execution of DX strategies and will utilize the knowledge and know-how they have accumulated through these efforts to explore and develop new market opportunities.
