European IT Outfit SCC Partners with Vietnamese Software Giant FPT

SCC will now be able to offer software development services across Europe via a new partnership with FPT Software, a software services giant in Vietnam. The partnership follows SCC’s announcement in June that it is expanding into Vietnam.

“The agreement with FPT Software represents a key milestone both in SCC’s continued transition as an IT services and solutions-led company and in the development of SCC Vietnam,” said James Rigby, chief executive of SCC, which says it is Europe’s principal independent IT services business.

SCC has been in discussions with FPT Software since arriving in Vietnam, Rigby added, calling FPT “an accomplished and capable partner.” He said SCC had been seeking a long-term partner to enable it to introduce new software development services across each of its strategic regions.

“[I]n a business of FPT Software’s size, scale and experience, we’re now well-placed for mutual success,” Rigby added.

FPT Software, an FPT Corp. company, is the largest IT corporation in Vietnam. It has more than $1.8 billion in revenue and about 27,000 employees. It offers application services, big data, cloud, business processing outsourcing, embedded system, legacy migration and package implementation solutions.

SCC Vietnam is based in Ho Chi Minh City. It will provide level three and four infrastructure support. It also will create an Offshore Development Centre to accelerate the development of internal customer applications.

“This is indeed a milestone to lay a foundation of FPT Software’s long-term partnership with SCC,” said Malay Verma, president of FPT USA Corp., FPT Corp.’s American business. “The benefits to both FPT Software and SCC are clear, and extend to the customers of both businesses as SCC add[s] new capability and we expand our footprint further into Europe. We look forward to an enduring and prosperous relationship with SCC.”
