The Hanoitimes - The Vietnam Software and IT Services Association (VINASA) launched "Vietnam’s 50 Leading IT Companies 2018" program in Hanoi on July 3.
Aside from the selection of 50 leading IT companies in Vietnam like in previous years, VINASA has picked the top ten enterprises most technologically prepared for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, also known as Revolution 4.0. They are outstanding enterprises in digital transformation, internet of things, and new technology trends.
This is the fifth year VINASA has organized the program to select prestigious and competent IT firms in Vietnam to introduce, promote, and connect with potential partners at home and abroad, ICT News and Vietnam News Agency reported.
In 2017, the 50 selected enterprises from the program earned over VND20.676 billion (US$936 million) in revenue, accounting for nearly a quarter of the total revenue of the software and IT services industry.
A total of 35,542 people worked in Vietnam's IT service sector in 2017, making up 25% of the total workforce in the software industry.
Businesses are encouraged to promote creativity and adopt strategies for digital transformation and the development of high-quality products and services such as artificial intelligence, robotics, automation and 3D-printing.
These technological products not only meet local demand but also contribute to the expansion of foreign markets, particularly key destinations like Japan, North America, and Europe.
A special publication entitled “Vietnam’s 50+10 Leading IT Companies 2018” will be compiled in Vietnamese, English, and Japanese.
IT companies with legal entities in Vietnam who have been established for over three years may register to participate in the program on the website (http://leadingitcompanies.com) until July 12. The announcement of the 50 successful IT companies will be made in Hanoi on October 18.
Over the years, the program has supported many effective local IT businesses, especially those operating in the fields of marketing, communications, and cooperation development.
