Vingroup, Vietnam’s largest private conglomerate, has on Monday announced a strategic collaboration with Google Cloud to modernize and connect its critical systems and data at a group-wide level.

This reaffirms Vingroup’s commitment toward adopting best-in-class technologies to boost its production capabilities, improve product and service quality, enhance the customer experience, and advance its global growth ambitions, Vingroup said in a statement.

Through this collaboration, Vingroup and its subsidiaries will migrate their entire SAP footprint from on-premises data centers to Google Cloud’s open and secure cloud infrastructure.

This will transform Vingroup’s supply chain management, enterprise resource planning (ERP), finance management, human capital management (HCM), manufacturing operations, and more.

“Vingroup’s mission is to bring a better life to everyone, and the key to realizing this mission is technology. With Google Cloud’s leading cloud infrastructure and unified data platform, we can now access data-driven insights to better understand our customers’ needs, respond with personalized products and services, and create more compelling customer experiences,

“We also believe that this collaboration will help to enhance the security and efficiency of Vingroup’s business systems and applications across the world,” said Le Thi Thu Thuy, Vice Chairwoman, Vingroup, and Global Chief Executive Officer, VinFast.

On top of generating significant operational cost savings over the next three to five years, the migration will enable Vingroup to operate in a scalable and reliable cloud environment that delivers global access to its applications with maximum uptime and extremely low latency.

By using Google Cloud, the industry’s cleanest cloud, Vingroup will also ensure that its systems are running both efficiently and sustainably.

This builds on the group’s commitment toward sustainable development, which has seen VinFast join the Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) Declaration and commit to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2040.

To accelerate its global smart electric vehicle (EV) push, VinFast will be running SAP S/4HANA on Google Cloud in the United States, France, Germany, and the Netherlands under the RISE with SAP offering.

This follows the company’s moves to establish local headquarters in Los Angeles, Frankfurt, Paris, and Amsterdam; build new manufacturing hubs in Vietnam’s Ha Tinh province and North Carolina to complement its existing 335-hectare digital automotive factory in Vietnam’s Hai Phong province; and expand its network of physical and online customer touchpoints in the United States, Canada and Europe.

VinFast most recently exported its first batch of smart electric vehicles (EVs) to international markets and received its biggest corporate order to date from the largest car subscription service firm in the United States.

By connecting its SAP software systems to the data warehouses that it has already established with Google Cloud, VinFast will acquire the ability to integrate and analyze petabytes of historical and real-time data from its manufacturing lines and its digital estate for EV sales and aftercare.

This will enable VinFast to gain fresh insights to improve decision-making, facilitate advanced automation to enhance production yield and address growing demand, and explore new ways – including the use of Google Automotive Services (GAS) – to assist customers throughout the vehicle ownership lifecycle.

In addition, Vingroup subsidiaries in other sectors like VinHMS, Vinpearl, Vinhomes, Vinschool, Vinmec, and more, will be running their business operations using SAP on Google Cloud.

Vingroup’s SAP migration will, for instance, deepen synergies between VinHMS, which provides hotel reservation and management software services, and Vinpearl, which owns a network of hotels, resorts and theme parks.

By combining and analyzing product, customer, and supply chain datasets, teams at Vinpearl and VinHMS can now create hyperpersonalized vacation experiences, including targeted promotions on Google Travel, Google Hotel Search, and Google Maps.

“With three decades of market leadership and sustainable development under its belt, Vingroup is now bringing its mission-critical SAP systems and data services onto Google Cloud to create a robust digital foundation for enhanced employee experiences, new competitive advantages, and future innovation and growth,

“Our collaboration with Vingroup is a great example of the next-generation, enterprise-ready capabilities and unique value that Google Cloud can bring to local enterprises – including those with plans to transition to more environmentally sustainable business operations, as they accelerate their digital transformation strategies, elevate Vietnam’s position in the global value chain, and contribute to its dynamic economy,” said Ruma Balasubramanian, Managing Director, Southeast Asia, Google Cloud.

This strategic collaboration with Google Cloud is one of Vingroup’s key steps toward optimizing its internal resources and gaining new competitive advantages from innovation and technology applications – to create sustainable growth momentum for the future and achieve its global business goals.
