European services business SCC signs a Preferred Partner framework agreement with FPT Software, one covering the delivery of services from the Vietnamese software giant across Europe.
The agreement follows the June 2016 expansion of SCC into Vietnam.
SCC does not currently offer software development services, but the agreement provides it with exclusive access to FPT software application development management services in the UK, France and Spain. It also adds software development capability across a number of IT services, primarily Flex Resourcing and SharePoint solutions.
Also provided by the deal is access to the FPT Cloud Migration service, including migration to Office 365.
The two companies plan to pursue non-exclusive projects within both Europe and Vietnam, including legacy migration, testing, infra services, mobility and analytics.
“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," SCC says. "We’ve been in discussions with FPT Software since arriving in Vietnam, and this is an important announcement as we gain an accomplished and capable partner. It was our intention to find a long-term partner as we introduce new software development services across each of our strategic regions, and in a business of FPT Software’s size, scale and experience, we’re now well-placed for mutual success.”
