Currently, CMC Telecom is the only partner to provide the entire international telecommunication channel for SAMSUNG Group in Vietnam thanks to quality service, fast processing speed and capacity of the system to ensure comprehensive back-up. In the future, SAMSUNG SDS expects to closely cooperate with CMC Corporation in boosting the construction of Smart City and Smart Building solutions as well as IoT and Cloud AI applications in Vietnamese market.

We also see opportunities to deploy and provide IT solutions and applications of Samsung SDS in Vietnamese market. In order to achieve that, we have to have strategic partners to jointly deploy in markets like Vietnam. Those partners must both have strong human resources and be able to ensure their capabilities in the field of technology. CMC is our best choice, because it is currently the leading ICT enterprise in Vietnam, which can both ensure human resources of good quality and have infrastructure ready for cloud computing solutions”. Mr. Nguyen Trung Chinh (Chairman/CEO of CMC) also said: “ CMC Corporation's goals are 5000 employees in the staff and 500 million USD in revenue by 2020, which are twice as much of the current indexes. However, we have clearly determined our objective and road map, which is providing world-class IT and telecommunications products and services in Vietnam and globally. By steadfastly following this path right from the start, CMC has been chosen by the world's leading corporations as their partner: AT&T, Oracle, SAP, Microsoft and most recently, Samsung SDS.   SAMSUNG is one of the top partners in the world, so I believe that the strategic partnership between both parties will be very successful and will open up a new future with further success for both of us. ”
