ĐÀ NẴNG — FPT, a Việt Nam software giant, officially inaugurated the Information Technology (IT) Service Centre, FPT Complex, in Đà Nẵng, providing office space for 3,200 IT employees in the first stage and 10,000 engineers in the second stage.

It’s the biggest IT service centre in the central region with an aim of contributing US$1 billion to FPT’s software export revenue in 2020.

The first stage of the 5.9ha complex was built with an investment of VNĐ485 billion (US$23 million). It has been recognised as an environment friendly and energy-saving complex by the Ministry of Construction, with a solar-power heater system and a solar power generator.

“It’s a green and smart place for 10,000 employees and partners working together. The centre was a crucial step of our strategy in developing Đà Nẵng as a smart city and a world IT centre,” said FPT Chairman Trương Gia Bình.

“Đà Nẵng is seen as a young dynamic city with 60 per cent of its population of working age, and we have received positive support from the city’s leadership in developing the project,” Bình said.

He said the operation of the FPT Complex would help develop the e-education system in the city in the near future.

In the latest report from the city, FPT Đà Nẵng, a company of FPT, contributed 37 per cent of the city’s software export revenue in 2015 (US$50 million).

According to FPT, the group has been developing offices, apartments, villas, lakes, parks, traffic and public entertainment centres and a FPT University in a ‘green’ environment with standard waste water treatment, energy saving and renewal energy for both domestic and foreign IT employees and students.

Last year, FPT Software in co-operation with Japanese partners debuted its 10,000-Bridge Software Engineer (BrSE) training programme to boost the Japanese IT market by 2020.

FPT operates in 19 countries, has a labour force of 27,000 and a revenue of US$1.8 billion. 

Eduprove software

FPT Software has officially signed a contract to provide Quảng Ngãi University of Finance and Accounting with Eduprove software.

The software was originally named Uniprove, which was developed under the co-operation between FPT Software and Hitachi in 2012. It is a comprehensive university management support system provided by Hitachi to Japanese universities.

It provides information management for students from entry to graduation and administrative support for teaching staff. Together, the two companies localised the programme into Việt Nam and changed the specifications in accordance with the Vietnamese university system to develop Eduprove. — VNS
