Jang Ji-yeong Oct 11, 2010

The National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) is stepping up its export mentoring to match Korean and foreign software firms. The agency is holding a business event from October 11 to 15 and in November to publicize Korean developers’ software to Vietnamese and Singaporean IT companies, respectively. Five Korean software firms take part in the occasion in Vietnam – Younglimwon in ERP; Mantech in fault-tolerant high availability solution; WareValley in database security; DUNET in learning solution; Will-Be Solution in CRM. Over 200 local participants, including IBM’s partners and system integration firms, will be at the promotion in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi, Vietnam. The NIPA is planning to subsidize those firms that conclude export agreements there, specifically in localization and software improvement. “We made a list of almost 20 Korean solutions and conducted a survey on Vietnamese IT firms’ demands beforehand,” said an NIPA personnel. “The five solutions show great promise of successful exports as handpicked by local firms themselves,” he added. Actually, the Vietnamese government and enterprises, striving to upgrade their disaster recovery, security and many other fields, are showing keen interest in the solutions. According to the NIPA, also expected to be brisk is joint marketing of those software in tandem with IBM and other global hardware manufacturers to raise their reputation worldwide.
