Outsourcing IT service boosted among state agencies

HA NOI (Biz Hub) — The Government is aiming to boost the hire of information and technology services in state agencies, according to a resolution released on October 7.
Accordingly, state agencies can choose between full or partial service packages related to hardware, software, transmission lines and solutions to provide online public service.
The government also will allow ministers, deputy ministers, governmental agencies and the People's Committee chairperson to assign contracts and choose short-term hiring prices (under 12 months) if there are not enough conditions to determine a fixed price.
The Vietnam National Committee on Information Technology adopted the hire of information and technology services in state agencies last year.
The Prime Minister also signed a decision to initiate contracts for information and technology services in state agencies, which took effect in February.
According to the decision, state agencies, which outsource information and technology services, must have requirements for service providers related to professional capacity, finance, technical and technological conditions, experience, and information safety and security.
The outsourcing can help State-run agencies and companies remove the need for large investments in high-tech facilities by spending on their specific needs. — VNS

IT outsourcing grows strongly

HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — Viet Nam's strong growth in the IT sector, low-cost and easily trained workforce, and support infrastructure for offshore outsourcing has made it a an emerging destination for IT outsourcing services, speakers at a conference held in HCM City said yesterday.
Lam Nguyen Hai Long, CEO of Quang Trung Software City, said the software outsourcing industry had been growing rapidly.
Speaking at the coun-try's first conference on IT outsourcing, Long said that HCM City and Ha Noi ranked 18th and 20th respectively among the top 100 most attractive global cities for software outsourcing, according to a 2015 report by Tholons, a leading strategic advisory firm for global outsourcing and research.
Nguyen Cong Ai, vice president of KPMG Vietnam, said a survey conducted by KPMG and QTSC of 80 business executives in the IT industry in Viet Nam pointed out that 98 per cent of polled firms rated Viet Nam as an attractive market for ITO businesses and indicated that they would invest in expanding business in the country.
Rising labour costs in other ITO hubs like China and India could trigger more opportunities for Viet Nam, he said.
Viet Nam has a skilled labour force with more than 40,000 engineers graduating each year from 290 universities across the country, in addition to 160,000 Vietnamese studying overseas.
Vu Anh Tuan, general secretary of the HCM City Computer Association (HCA), said that Viet Nam's further integration in the global economy, via foreign trade agreements, including the Trans-Pacific-Partnership Agreement and ASEAN Economic Community, would also help improve the country's infrastructure and the quality of labour force as well as business opportunities for out-sourcing firms.
However, delegates at the conference said that though Viet Nam's labour force was indeed professional, language competency remained a barrier for the industry. They said it was still difficult to recruit a large, skilled software team in the country.
Another problem is the low awareness about intellectual property rights and copyright issues, they said.
Ai urged enterprises to co-operate more with universities and colleges, and encourage them to provide more practical training curricula to match businesses' requirements.
To develop the domestic ITO industry, the Government and IT enterprises should work together to improve certain areas affecting the industry, including taxes, human resources, infrastructure and marketing, he added.
Representatives of IT firms at the conference urged improvement in the stability, speed and bandwidth of the electricity, telephone and internet infrastructure in the country.
Yuko Adachi, vice president of research at Gartner Asia-Pacific, said that domestic IT firms should also work closely with other providers, industry associations and government agencies to address concerns over data security.
The environment of offshore IT outsourcing is dramatically changing due to increasing cost pressures and uncertainty in the global economy, as well as emerging digital technologies such as automation and smart-machine-enabled services, she said.
ITO companies must prepare for the new competition from smart machine-enabled services, she added.
Ai said he agreed with Adachi, and urged Vietnamese firms to create a breakthrough in the smart machine field and not to rely on low-cost labour as a way of doing business, which would be inefficient in the long run.
Tuan said firms need to focus more on improving product quality and intellectual property rights as well as hiring qualified human resources to meet customers' requirements and capitalise on opportunities the TPP agreement will bring.
Organised by the QTSC and HCA, the two-day Viet Nam ITO conference attracted about 400 local and international business leaders, government representatives, entrepreneurs and education representatives. About 100 of that number were international investors and vendors from the US, Japan, Europe, Australia, Korea, Singapore and other countries. — VNS

Japanese eye co-operation with Vietnam IT sector

HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — Japanese information technology firms want to strengthen co-operation with their Vietnamese counterparts, especially to develop applications for social infrastructure and offshore business, according to the Viet Nam-Japan IT Cooperation Club (VJC).
Speaking at Japan ICT Day celebrated in HCM City on Wednesday, Nguyen Doan Hung, VJC's chairman, said Viet Nam and Japan have had fruitful co-operation in the IT sector in recent years.
Kazunori Hamano, vice chairman & chairman of the International Committee, Japan Information Technology Services Association (JISA), said Viet Nam had been the preferred partner for Japanese firms in the last decade due to its competitive prices and good quality.
According to surveys by the Viet Nam Software and IT Services Association (VINASA) and VJC, Vietnamese firms that do business with Japanese partners all enjoy good growth, averaging 77 per cent, and some even 300-400 per cent.
They mainly co-operate in software and services outsourcing, BPO (business process outsourcing), mobile application development, and cloud computing. The number of Vietnamese engineers working for Japanese IT projects in the first half of the year went up by 46.5 per cent year-on-year. JISA said Viet Nam is the second largest software outsourcing destination for Japan after China.
Hirotaka Yasuzumi, chief representative of the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) in HCM City, said in 2014 Japanese firms invested in 52 new IT projects in Viet Nam, accounting for 15 per cent of their total investment in the country.
Japanese firms expected to expand their investment in the IT sector in Viet Nam, especially in offshore businesses, he said.
But Viet Nam's IT human resources did not meet the expectations of Japanese firms, especially with respect to proficiency in Japanese, he said.
According to Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Thanh Hung, more than 400,000 workers work in the IT sector.
The country had made efforts to standardise its IT workforce based on international norms to meet the needs of both local and foreign enterprises, he said.
Japan was an important partner to boost the development of the country's IT sector, he said.
Japan ICT Day this year, titled "Collaboration on Internet of Things Applications for Social Infrastructure and Offshore Business," offered a good chance for businesses in the two countries to exchange information and explore co-operation in IoT, which was growing rapidly, including in Japan and Viet Nam, he said. — VNS

Web tech could ease congestion




"By 2020 there would be 50 billion mobile devices around the world connected to the internet and IoT used in daily life" said Chu Tien Dung. — File Photo
HCM CITY (VNS) — The rate of urbanisation in Viet Nam has increased from 16 per cent annually in the 1990s to 35.5 per cent now, and is projected to rise to 45 per cent in 2020, putting more and more pressure on urban infrastructure, a seminar on using technology to ease traffic congestion heard in HCM City yesterday.
"The answer to resolving the traffic problem is Internet of Things (IoT), a convergence platform for smart city traffic," Chu Tien Dung, chairman of the HCM City Computer Association, said in his opening speech at the 20th Viet Nam Information and Communications Technology Outlook.
He said by 2020 there would be 50 billion mobile devices around the world connected to the internet and IoT used in daily life.
A smart city traffic system should have a sensor system, connected infrastructure, and human resources, he said.
"With IoT, we can connect, supervise, search, manage and control everything. That should be perfect to make traffic better using IoT."
Dung introduced a model using IoT for smart traffic management with three components.
The first is information collection through cameras, tracking and assessing vehicle density and inputting meteorological data from around the city.
The information is then processed at the traffic control centre.
Finally, all the information about traffic congestion, flooding, the number of vehicles will be propagated through traffic boards, mobile devices, and radio to help drivers choose the best routes.
"A smart city where information and communication technology is applied to manage all aspect of life should be created to help drive the economy, address growth issues such as traffic and pollution, and provide citizen services in a timely, cost-effective way," Ho Huu Thang, technical director of the enterprise and public sector segment, Cisco Viet Nam, said.
He said in Viet Nam and many other countries around the world, separate management systems are built for each industry.
"They require huge investment, but they cannot connect with each other and cause great waste.
"Using [Cisco's] Smart City Connected Network, cities can address specific issues such as parking, lighting, public safety, pollution/environment … and roll out services based on their priorities."
Traffic congestion has worsened in major cities in Viet Nam, especially HCM City and Ha Noi. According to the National Traffic Safety Committee, in the first six months of this year, there were 1,783 traffic accidents in HCM City, in which 344 people were killed and 1,549 others were injured.
HCM City now has 877 traffic lights but only 4 per cent are linked to the Traffic Management Centre.
There are 383 public cameras around the city, which are managed by different agencies. — VNS
