FPT Software announced on March 20 that it has signed a re-seller agreement with GE Digital to commercialize the latter’s software solutions.

“GE Digital is pleased to provide the tools to help Vietnamese industries transform their businesses and lead the digital industrial era through our Predix portfolio,” said Mr. Bill Ruh, CEO of GE Digital and Chief Digital Officer of GE. FPT Software’s expertise in cloud computing, mobility, BI and analytics, coupled with GE Digital’s deep domain expertise and global scale make this partnership an exciting landmark for the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) in Vietnam.

According to the agreement, GE Digital has officially named FPT Software an authorized re-seller of products and services in South Asia, specifically for GE Digital’s Automation, MES, Platform and APM Classic solutions. FPT Software will also provide professional services, including acceleration plans focusing on food and beverages, consumer packaged goods, heavy industry and the power industry. The two companies will collaborate to deploy activities from pre-sales to sales and marketing and initially deliver technical support to customers in Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia.

“Our partnership with GE Digital, a global market leader in Industrial Internet, is testament to our commitment to help Vietnamese and global businesses drive digital transformation,” said Mr. Truong Gia Binh, FPT Chairman. “Expanding our partnership opens doors to inspiring digital innovations and limitless global job opportunities for local young talent.”

At the signing ceremony, FPT University and GE Digital also signed an academic alliance to launch Predix training programs. By leveraging Predix, GE’s edge-to-cloud industrial application development platform, the two companies will expand their alliance and drive the expansion of Industrial IoT on two frontiers: technology and workforce development. As part of the academic alliance, FPT University aims to train certified instructors to train students to build apps faster and smarter, embarking on the leading edge of digital twin and edge-to-cloud computing. From the synergies of FPT University and GE Digital, the overall competitiveness of the domestic labor pool can benefit.
