Hoang Viet Anh, CEO of FPT Software, commented: “As we are in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution, companies must transform themselves into more digital-centric entities. Our partnership with Siemens in MindSphere is a testament of FPT’s commitment to help businesses drive digital transformation.
