HANOI, Vietnam–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Since early July 2017, FPT Corporation and Siemens have been
collaborating in utilizing and implementing MindSphere, the cloud-based
open IoT operating system from Siemens, for global customers of
different sizes.

The partnership sees the two companies collaborating in both the North
and South bound of the IoT platform, making FPT MindSphere’s eligible
partner in numerous categories, including Consulting, Application
Development, System Integration, Technology Development and Connectivity

The two companies have taken one step further in the partnership and
laid down plan to drive the expansion of the Industrial IoT platform in
two frontiers: technology and workforce development. On one hand, FPT
and Siemens will work together to provide worldwide solutions on
MindSphere to help businesses adopt digital transformation for their
organizations, particular in leveraging big data for IT/OT
convergence. On the other hand, the question of workforce readiness will
be addressed by FPT as the company has committed to develop up to 1,000
FTEs worldwide to help Siemens in MindSphere’s global go-to-market, both
in customer acquisition and technical roll-outs. Customers in industries
where the two companies have strong footprints and expertise, namely
Automotive, Aviation and Utilities among others, are expected to benefit
greatly from the strategic alliance. FPT and Siemens have achieved
initial success in UK, Germany and Vietnam. In the nearest future, the
two companies will expand to other markets like Europe, Japan, APAC and
US to support the fast growing community of MindSphere users.

“I strongly believe the determination of FPT and Siemens in embracing
digital manufacturing will witness tremendous success, especially for
our customers”. Mr. Hoang Viet-Anh, CEO of FPT Software
remarked. “The joint efforts between the companies will provide
customers with a powerful IoT platform and a highly scalable and
skillful workforce, which can be mobilized in a speedy manner, and to
any corner of the world.”

In the recent years, FPT has emerged as an adept IoT service provider,
with a growing customer base in various industries, from start-ups to
Fortunes 500s. FPT’s IoT team includes hundreds of experts with deep
knowledge in different platforms, and in both software and hardware.

“We believe FPT is a valuable partner, with whom we can assist customers
of all sizes and industries in driving the global Digital Transformation
by co-developing skillful workforce and providing joint offering. This
partnership and the FPT portfolio brings an important benefit for the
Mindsphere Ecosystem,” said Paul Kaeley, senior vice
president, Global Partner Eco-system, Siemens PLM Software.
