FPT Software is proud to stand alongside IBM, Accenture, Capgemini, and Sopra Steria to shape the future of aviation. Our software engineers are working round the clock to develop and deploy deploy Skywise applications for airliners around the world applications", FPT Software Chairman Hoang Nam Tien affirmed.

Over the past two years, the company has helped Airbus to gather, standardize, and integrate data of more than 30 airliners to the Skywise platform. According to Mr. Mathew Evans, Airbus Director of Global Skywise Project, the two companies have collaborated comprehensively and extensively. “Skywise is a global aviation industry project”, he said. “We are in this together not only for the short term but also set for a long future ahead”.
