The memorandum, which was signed on Tuesday, will create a mutual link between the technological strengths of DIR and FPT to be applied to frontier technology research and development fields aimed at providing services with increased added value.

It targets four fields of Japanese-language related artificial intelligence (AI) services, robotic process automation (RPA), technologies in relation to self-driving and blockchains.

DIR is a member of Daiwa Securities Group, the second largest securities company in Japan. DIR provides services in research, consulting, and system solutions.

Yoriyuki Kusaki, DIR president, said that DIR was providing Daiwa Securities Group with solutions that utilised cutting-edge technologies.

“Through our co-operation with Daiwa Securities Group, we aim to further improve our knowhow in frontier technologies, and will work towards creating new value to enable an even greater expansion of information technology in Japan,” he added.

Truong Gia Binh, FPT Chairman said that this was the first time FPT had sealed its co-operation with an international research institute to develop and research on the latest technologies – the platforms of Industry Revolution 4.0.

“This handshake will cultivate a new pathway to leverage technologies of both companies,” he said. “When speed is among the key factors to success in this Industry Revolution 4.0, this strategic co-operation is our motivation to accelerate speed of technology development and to quickly apply solutions and applications based on the latest technologies from the two parties’ researches into the empirical operation of enterprises across the globe.”

Previously, FPT and Daiwa Institute of Research BI (DIR BI) announced they were collaborating in providing a wide range of cloud services for enterprises with Internet of Things-related business in December last year.

Accordingly, FPT and DIR BI will be in co-operation of consulting, transitioning to public cloud as well as providing managed services on cloud after transformation for Japanese customers.
