E.ON strengthens its long-standing partnership with FPT Software, plans to open offshore development center

Tech solutions firm, FPT Software announced a partnership with E.ON, one of Europe’s major energy companies. The two firms look to take their collaboration to a more comprehensive level by considering future opportunities of opening a delivery center in Vietnam.

What is the mission behind the extended partnership?

In light of Vietnam’s potential as an emerging digital nation and the existing partnership with FPT Software, E.ON shows consideration for opening an offshore development center (ODC) in Vietnam in fields like SAP, DevOps, Data Analytics, artificial intelligence. The future ODC is expected to help E.ON diversify its delivery locations to ensure business resilience and agility.

FPT Software plans to leverage its best-shore delivery model through an extensive network across Europe and Asia to provide E.ON with round-the-clock support, cost-effectiveness and workforce scalability. This collaboration prospect was considered during E.ON’s recent trip to Vietnam, where E.ON leaders visited FPT Software’s campuses and FPT University to understand more about FPT’s facilities and education for next-generation IT professionals.

Both companies share a common vision for diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace. E.ON’s COO and Board Member Victoria Ossadnik and FPT Software Chairwoman Chu Thi Thanh Ha participated in a talk titled “Women in Tech: Break through the Barriers” to discuss women’s role in IT firms and career advancement opportunities for female employees.

E.ON’s Chief Operating Officer Victoria Ossadnik expressed satisfaction with the trip’s outcomes. “It would be a big mistake for E.ON not to visit Vietnam,” Ossadnik said.

For over five years, FPT and E.ON have worked on several projects in SAP, ServiceNow, Sitecore, DevOps, Application Development, Testing and Cloud. This includes involving SAP authorizations for 60.000+ end-users across Europe. FPT also supported E.ON One, the energy transition solution under E.ON, in their sustainable energy consumption project.
