FPT Software has recently signed an agreement with global software firm OutSystems to strengthen both sides foothold in the Japanese market.
Being the first Managed Services Partner of OutSystems in Japan, FPT will provide a comprehensive range of services from development, operations to maintenance of software applications on its low-code platform. Low code, as defined by is OutSystems, is a software development approach that enables faster delivery of applications, hence faster time-to-market.
According to Mr. Arnold Consengco, OutSystems’s Northeast Asia and Japan Regional Vice President, the partner choice is a testament to FPT’s strength not only in terms the of digital workforce but also technological capabilities.
“FPT has a large number of resources, multi-language capabilities as well as a strong position in the Japanese market since it is a very large base for the company. I believe it has a lot to offer and to bring that offshore development capability to Japan,” he said.
Low-code has helped OutSystems customers achieve exceptional results, from a 253 percent increase in returning on investment in seven months to launching 60 apps in less than two years, saving 650 days of development efforts.
By 2024, low-code application development will be responsible for more than 65 percent of application development activities globally, according to a report released by Gartner last year. Asia Pacific, including Japan, is expected to record the fastest growth in 2019-2024.
“This is where I believe both companies could leverage our resources and build a bigger ecosystem to deliver more projects to more customers. The future basis for commercial engagement with customers in Japan is not based on how cheap you can do something, but rather, how fast you can do it,” Arnold said.
“With labor shortage, Japanese businesses have actively adopted digital technologies such as low code to enhance their productivity and competitiveness. We really look forward to working with OutSystems to accelerate digital transformation in the country,” said FPT Chairman Dr. Truong Gia Binh.
Since entering Japan in 2005, FPT has dedicated nearly 10,000 employees, both working onsite and offshore, to helping local companies address their digital challenges. The company is set to become the global top 50 world-class provider of comprehensive digital services and solutions by 2030.
