Innovation through modernising IT systems

Loan Pham, NashTech CTO presented to all delegates and listed some key options that companies can consider modernising their businesses. These were: 

  1. Encapsulating: Use the features and value of existing applications, making them available as services. 
  1. Rehosting: Move components to a new physical or cloud infrastructure.
  1. Re-Platforming: Leave applications nearly as they are, adapted to a new platform. 
  1. Refactoring: Optimise existing code on the backend without changing front end behaviour or features. 
  1. RearchitectingFind new and better capabilities for applications with a complete shift in code.
  1. Rebuilding: Build new applications from scratch but with a similar function and scope.
  1. Replacing: Take new business requirements into account and build from the ground up. 

The key takeaway from our CTO’s presentation was that by applying emerging technologies to the innovation processes, enterprises can conquer challenges and create a competitive advantage.

We all know that offshore development in Vietnam is wellknown and has a great reputation. Vietnam has great developers that support their clients in both new projects and software maintenance. NashTech Vietnam is a pioneer in offshore development because we’ve had development centres in Vietnam for nearly 20 years. (In Japanese, we call it as Shinise), we actually do a lot of innovation projects from scratch with clients.

We not only emphasise our new technology radars like AI and blockchain. We involve our clients from the very beginning by starting with their vision. Once we know the vision of clients, we provide our solutions matching with modern technologies. Here I would like to say, the key to success is to share the vision together firstly, then work on the technologies.
