Ha Noi, 9 September 2021 – FPT and McKinsey today announced a strategic collaboration to support Vietnamese enterprises in their post Covid-19 digital transformation journey and accelerate the transition of Vietnamese economy towards digital economy.

Under this strategic collaboration, FPT Digital, the digital transformation consulting company of FPT Corporation, and McKinsey Vietnam, a subsidiary of the global management consulting firm, intend to help Vietnamese enterprises in both public and private sectors develop their digital transformation and optimize business opportunities.

FPT Digital and McKinsey Vietnam will work together with client organizations and enable them to extract most value from digital transformation programs, deploy appropriate technologies and IT solutions, run reskilling and upskilling programs, adapt new agile ways of working, and build new digital ventures. They intend to also collaborate to accelerate Vietnam’s transition to a digital economy by supporting digital transformation strategies and programs in the public, private and state-owned sectors.

As a result of this collaboration, the two companies intend to jointly help Vietnamese private and state-owned enterprises on diagnostic reports for digital and technology readiness, data & analytics readiness assessments and strategies, as well as develop roadmaps and other digital ecosystem strategies.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has sped up the adoption of digital technologies. To stay competitive, Vietnamese companies need an in-depth understanding of their digital readiness, where in their business that digital transformation would unlock the most value, and what new skills or ways of working they need to embrace to capture that value,” said Marco Breu, Partner at McKinsey Vietnam. “We are excited to apply our strategy and digital expertise to help transform Vietnamese enterprises in the digital era.”

Tran Huy Bao Giang, CEO and Partner at FPT Digital, said: “When building digital transformation roadmap for enterprises, we pay special attention to their business strategy, vision and long-term goals. We would then assess challenges and priorities of the business before suggesting immediate actions to take. The cooperation with McKinsey Vietnam enhances FPT Digital’s digital transformation consulting services and provides our clients with a seamless experience in a more efficient manner.”
