SCC, Europe’s principal independent IT services business, has signed a framework agreement with FPT Software to deliver new software services across Europe.
FPT Software, with the leading position in the Vietnamese and other markets, was chosen for its technical capability, skilled people and talented, experienced leadership team.
The agreement sees FPT Software and SCC partnering in Application Development Management Services, Cloud Migration services in the UK, France, and Spain, as well as additional software development capability across a number of SCC’s existing IT services – primarily Flex Resourcing and SharePoint solutions.
On the Preferred Partner basis, SCC and FPT Software also intend to jointly pursue projects in these regions for further portfolio services, including legacy migration, testing, infra services, mobility and analytics, representing a substantial European expansion for the Vietnamese business.
SCC Chief Executive James Rigby said:
“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. 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.”
Malay Verma, President of FPT USA Corp., FPT Corporation’s American business, added:
“This is indeed a milestone to lay a foundation of FPT Software’s long-term partnership with SCC. The benefits to both FPT Software and SCC are clear, and extend to the customers of both businesses as SCC add new capability and we expand our footprint further into Europe. We look forward to an enduring and prosperous relationship with SCC.”
