Vingroup, Vietnam’s largest private conglomerate, will migrate its entire SAP footprint from on-premise data centres to Google Cloud’s infrastructure.
According to the company, this will transform Vingroup’s supply chain management, enterprise resource planning (ERP), finance management, human capital management (HCM) and manufacturing operations.
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 will deliver it global access to applications with maximum uptime and extremely low latency, a Vingroup spokesperson said.
Vingroup’s smart electric vehicles division VinFast will run its SAP S/4 Hana on the Google Cloud, under the RISE with SAP offering, in the US, France, Germany and the Netherlands to help in its global push to sell its smart electric cars.
Analyse petabytes of data
By connecting its SAP software systems to the data warehouses that it has already established in the Google Cloud, VinFast will acquire the ability to integrate and analyse petabytes of historical and real-time data from its two manufacturing lines in Vietnam and one in North Carolina in the US, and its digital estate for EV sales and aftercare.
The Vingroup spokesperson said this would 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 and Vinmec will run their business operations using SAP on Google Cloud.
Vingroup’s SAP migration will deepen synergies between VinHMS, which provides hotel reservation and management software services, and Vinpearl, which owns a network of hotels, resorts and theme parks, the spokesperson added.
By combining and analysing product, customer, and supply chain datasets, teams at Vinpearl and VinHMS will be able to create hyper-personalised vacation experiences, including targeted promotions on Google Travel, Google Hotel Search, and Google Maps.
The Vice Chairwoman, Vingroup, and Global CEO, VinFast, Le Thi Thu Thuy, said the collaboration with Google would help to enhance the security and efficiency of Vingroup's business systems and applications across the world.
She also noted that by migrating from traditional, self-managed data centres to an operationally carbon-neutral option like Google Cloud, Vingroup would reduce its IT carbon footprint and improve its sustainability profile.
This builds on the group’s commitment toward sustainable development, which has seen VinFast commit to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2040.
