On the occasion, FPT Vietnam was recognised as the first ASEAN-based premier partner for its key role in helping customers drive innovation and build solutions on the AWS Cloud.
“With the award, FPT Software and AWS will enter deeper relations, enabling us to approach more influential groups as well as important projects globally, thus contributing to reaching our $1-billion revenue target by 2020,” Nguyen Thi Dan Phuong, chief marketing officer of FPT Software, told VIR.
FPT’s major markets are Vietnam, Japan, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
Also, during the annual AWS Partner Summit and on the eve of the AWS ASEAN Summit, the AWS Partner Awards was announced to recognise a wide range of born-in-the cloud, and traditional AWS Consulting and Technology Partners whose business models have embraced specialisation and collaboration over the past year.
The awards also recognise partners whose business models continue to evolve and thrive on the AWS Cloud as they work with customers, enabling them to build on Big Data analytics and take advantage of the benefits of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.
AWS now has a wide range of ASEAN customers, with many big brands having strong operations in Vietnam, including Central Group and Masan Group.

“The diverse nature of the winners of AWS Partner Awards reflects the opportunities provided for partners who focus on helping customers remove the friction of managing IT infrastructure and set the platform for innovation,” said Nick Walton, managing director of AWS ASEAN.
“AWS partners are adding value to customers across a wide range of industries, from banking and finance to the public sector, and increasingly, the Southeast Asian startup sector. The winners of the 2018 AWS ASEAN Partner Awards understand that customers can access more than 100 services to innovate in a myriad of ways—including some who are bringing entirely new solutions to market, and others who have been working with AWS since the launch of the AWS Asia-Pacific (Singapore) Region more than seven years ago,” he added.
AWS is a subsidiary of Amazon, the world’s largest e-commerce empire. However, AWS has a distinct leadership and operating structure from Amazon’s parent company.
AWS has been officially present in Vietnam since early 2017 to support its customers using the company’s products.
