Global IT services provider FPT announced that it has joined the SAP Regional Strategic Services Partner (RSSP) initiative, established by SAP Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) to expand the capabilities and reach of established partners in the APJ region that are on a rapid growth trajectory.

Through the RSSP initiative, SAP will provide eligible partners with strategic support, which may include coordinated industry-aligned solutions, a joint go-to-market strategy, and access to SAP regional and market unit industry expertise.

The RSSP initiative will enable FPT to scale its SAP practice more rapidly across the APJ region and work more closely with SAP to drive joint customer success.

"At FPT, we are passionate about building a happier future for individuals, fostering success for organisations, and prosperity for nations,” said Trương Gia Bình, FPT chairman.

The 20 years of partnership between SAP and FPT had been a journey of happiness, because the two sides had shared a purpose, which enables enterprises in Việt Nam and worldwide to manage their resources with efficiency, with transformation and with growth and expansion, he added.

“SAP is very important to FPT because digital transformation must be based on the SAP foundation,” Bình told Việt Nam News.

“SAP essentially makes the most efficient use of resources including machinery, equipment, materials, people, and production processes and based on the most effective use of these resources, the next one is using data and artificial intelligence to turn an organisation into the most competitive and efficient one,” he noted.

It could be said that the signing with SAP was a foundation to be able to carry out digital transformation for large corporations in the world, added Bình.

Another thing that SAP was different from other ERP products was that it went very deeply into each industry, it had a specialised solution in every economic industry, added the chairman.

“Therefore, implementing SAP was very, very fast, so it will also help FPT go deeper into the industry's knowledge and expertise in banking, manufacturing, retail, and more,” he said.

"We have fostered collaborations with many world-class leaders to enable successful digital transformation for our customers. This collaboration with SAP allows us to leverage their industry expertise and resources to offer enhanced SAP S/4HANA Cloud migration service and managed service to meet the growing needs of our customers in the Asia Pacific Japan region," said Phạm Minh Tuấn, CEO of FPT Software.

"SAP has a vibrant and fast-growing partner ecosystem in the region. Many of our APJ-based partners have thousands of SAP-certified consultants worldwide and deliver hundreds of SAP-related projects every year. We have a unique opportunity to do more with our regional partners and drive more innovation and value for our customers," said Utkarsh Maheshwari, Chief Partner Officer, SAP Asia Pacific Japan.

"We welcome and congratulate FPT Corporation on joining the SAP Regional Strategic Services Partner initiative,” he added.

To qualify for the SAP RSSP initiative, candidate partners must meet or exceed a defined set of SAP criteria, including geographic presence, vertical industry competencies, and alignment on a common sustainability strategy.

FPT's collaboration with SAP dates back to 2003, with many successful joint digital transformation projects across various sectors, including Manufacturing, BFSI and Energy. — VNS
