Yokogawa Electric Corporation and FPT Software Company Limited announced a global supplier framework agreement for the development and deployment of digital transformation (DX) services to strengthen operational technology (OT) – information technology (IT) convergence in the industrial sector. The partnership will help accelerate the growth of Yokogawa's DX Solution Offerings and portfolio of applications and services while helping FPT Software expand its market reach. The agreement is in effect and the coverage is worldwide.
Under this agreement, Yokogawa and FPT Software will cooperate in the planning and execution of DX strategies and will utilize the knowledge and know-how they have accumulated through these efforts to explore and develop new market opportunities. This partnership is based on the two companies' successful collaboration in the offering of internal and external DX solutions and services since 2022.
Specifically, FPT Software will strengthen Yokogawa's IT capabilities by providing support in the areas of application development, system maintenance, infrastructure deployment, infrastructure operation, and the offering of software as a service.
