“Re-skill the labour force, strengthen digital connectivity and boost cooperation between public and private sector are the way forward for Vietnamese businesses to promote sustainable growth in 4.0 industrial revolution,” said Dinh Thi Quynh Van, General Director of PwC Vietnam, in article on The Leader.
Commenting on the Vietnam segment of the PwC global study, Industry 4.0: Global Digital Operations Study 2018, Van suggested that to improve competitiveness, Vietnamese enterprises need to focus on technology, skills and corporate governance, and must be proactive in addressing these issues.
Erich Gerber, senior vice president, EMEA and APJ, TIBCO, noted that Vietnam will need skilled data scientists for it to ride the digital transformation and evolve Vietnam into a digital economy.
Beginning in 2020, 210 HANU students in the information technology programme will be trained in TIBCO’s advanced analytics technology to ensure that they have the core competencies and skillsets required to meet industry needs in application and solution innovation.
The HANU TIBCO Advanced Analytics Lab will expose students to the practical applications of advanced analytics in industries. They will be trained on how to leverage data in real time to enable informed decision-making for improved business results.
“Digital technology is playing a major role in Vietnam’s digital journey, but a large gap in data and technology skills prevents growth. A strong collaboration between universities and industry leaders in the data analytics space is vital to imparting that knowledge on the next generation of technology professionals,” said Assoc. Prof. Nguyen Van Trao, president, Hanoi University.
By exposing students to big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, Gerber added that the joint programme with HANU could have a ground-breaking economic impact in Vietnam as the ecosystem expands and more talent is made available to support local companies with world-class applications.
