Vu Quang Tam – CTO of Novaon DX ranks Top 6 among young leaders in the field of digital transformation
Young technology leaders are making significant contributions to the national digital transformation and the export of software internationally.
Before co-founding Base.vn, Vương held the position of CTO at Wings Vietnam and CTO at VPN Technology Solutions, where he worked on technology projects with companies such as FPT Software, Vietjet Air, Honda, Abbott.
He has also been involved in important technology projects within the Base platform, such as the Communication Platform, Customer Data Platform, Automation Bot. Currently, he is working on a project to integrate third-party applications into the Base ecosystem, creating synergies and enhancing the optimal working experience for customers.
According to Hoàng Trung Thiên Vương, digital transformation is booming in Vietnam. Each business has its own unique strengths, serving customer groups ranging from small to large, and expanding their services to international markets. Vietnamese engineers are fully capable of mastering technology and creating products that can address global challenges.
“Digital transformation must also be seen from a different perspective, which is to serve the most basic needs of users, not just businesses,” Hoàng Thạch said about the reason for starting an audiobook application.
According to the CEO of Voiz FM, the biggest challenge in the digital transformation of the publishing industry is obtaining audiobook copyrights. Additionally, Hoàng Thạch and his team of engineers are working on a project to digitize voice emotions, allowing AI to express a wide range of emotions through algorithms. Currently, the AI-generated voice is being tested by Thạch’s team and has received positive feedback from the community.
Having studied in Australia and Japan before returning to Vietnam to start his entrepreneurial journey, Quân realized that technological solutions not only bring high efficiency to businesses but also serve as a platform to drive business models and sustainable development.
Under Quân’s leadership, Rikkeisoft transitioned from an ITO company to a consulting and digital transformation service provider. The electronic identification solution – Rikkei eKYC, led by Quân, also won the Sao Khuê Award in 2021.
According to CTO Vũ Quang Tám, before Covid-19, digital transformation was one of the options for businesses, but during the pandemic, digital transformation became an urgent matter, and the businesses that could transform quickly would win.
In Vũ Quang Tám’s view, the digital transformation solutions being developed by Vietnamese technology companies typically involve an ecosystem with various products and platforms that businesses can choose from based on their needs and scale. “The strength of these domestic digital transformation products lies in the fact that they are developed by Vietnamese engineers, hosted in Vietnam, and designed to understand the needs of businesses and user habits. However, they are sold at a much lower cost compared to international competitors,” said Vũ Quang Tám.
In his role as Chief Architect, Nam Long proposed the development of an AI platform to manage and optimize the business value chain. Abivin has successfully implemented over 45 projects, optimizing supply chains for numerous domestic customers and multinational corporations. The Abivin vRoute platform, developed by Long, currently handles more than 70,000 container shipments and 500,000 delivery orders every month.
According to Hữu Ân, Vietnam’s advantages in the field of digital transformation lie in its young workforce, high education level, and cost-effectiveness. However, if looking at the global transformation landscape in 5 to 7 years, these advantages will diminish. That’s why digital transformation companies in Vietnam have quickly shifted from outsourcing to production, taking control of applications and platforms.
“To continue competing, Vietnamese engineers must enter the global game, serving the market of 7 billion people, not just 90 million. In the future, Vietnamese engineers will be the ones to come up with solutions and solve problems for global users, rather than simply ‘hired hands’ for software outsourcing as in the past,” Nguyễn Hữu Ân stated.
