HÀ NỘI — More than 40 ministries, branches and localities have developed digital transformation projects. However, in the business sector, especially among small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and manufacturing enterprises, this process is not happening as strongly as expected.
This is the motivation for the Việt Nam Software and IT Services Association (VINASA) to take the initiative and implement the development of the Digital Transformation Manual for SMEs and the Digital Transformation Guide for Vietnamese industrial enterprises to provide specific guidance for businesses.
The programme not only helps SMEs and manufacturing enterprises in Việt Nam approach and implement digital transformation methodically and specifically, but also directly connects these businesses with digital technology enterprises.
These digital technology enterprises are typical digital service and solution providers, which contribute to the promotion of the process of digital transformation in businesses, helping businesses quickly recover, and serving as a driving force for the development of the economy.
The Guide of Digital Transformation for SMEs and manufacturing enterprises will be officially announced by VINASA at the Việt Nam Digital Transformation Forum 2021 (Việt Nam DX Summit), the largest digital transformation event in Việt Nam.
Việt Nam DX Summit 2021 will be held from November 30 to December 4, with more than 80 speakers and over 8,000 delegates watching on online platforms.
After that, all the documents will be released publicly and free of charge on each programme's own website.
The guide documents will be the beginning of a series of professional and specific digital transformation training programmes for businesses.
A VINASA survey at Việt Nam Digital Transformation Day 2020 showed that 69 per cent of surveyed businesses did not know which partner to choose to implement digital transformation, 72 per cent do not know where to start, and 92 per cent do not know how to do digital transformation.
Meanwhile, the General Statistics Office reported that under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Việt Nam had 101,000 businesses shutting down last year.
More than 90,000 businesses stopped doing business, and an average of 10,000 businesses exited the market every month in the first nine months of this year.
The third outbreak in Bắc Ninh, Bắc Giang, and Hải Dương and the fourth outbreak in the southern provinces caused great damage to manufacturing enterprises in industrial zones.
Businesses most affected are those that have not yet made a drastic change in digital transformation. — VNS
