Within the framework of the Conference, there were also two seminars named "Spreading the aspirations of Digital Transformation" and "Exploring the Digital Transformation mindset". In those sessions, some key directions of DX issues and specific solutions were clarified to help businesses be more adaptive to the ceaseless transformation of the digital economy. Under the impact of the 4th Industrial Revolution, DX is an inevitable and vital trend for countries, organizations, businesses, and consumers around the world. The enormous changes in labor productivity, consumer demand, behaviors, habits, and new business models reveal the massive impact of digital transformation on social life and industries.
At the seminar with the theme "Exploring Digital transformation mindset", Mr. Nguyen Hoang Minh - CEO of FPT Information System Co., Ltd. (FPT IS - a subsidiary of FPT) - shared his efficient experiences of accompanying various enterprises in the digital transformation journey. He said that Vietnam is gradually transforming into an economy where "digital" factors appear everywhere. As a result, companies are making record-breaking investments in digital transformation, especially in the banking and retail sectors. However, approximately 76% of digital transformation projects end in failure, even in large enterprises, as their investment strategy lacks direction and suitability. Mr. Minh pointed out the "3H + 3S" formula of the FPT Digital Kaizen methodology. Accordingly, in order to implement the "digital revolution", companies need to start their impact on the "Heart" – inspirations and enthusiasm in the entire organization, then the "Head" – strategic orientations, and finally, the "Hand" – action plans. The implementation process includes "3S" phases: Strategy (think big), Start smart and Scale fast. Moreover, the best starting point is choosing the right pain points to solve with ease of implementation and prompt results, which encourages more participation and determines the possibility of further application.

The Club is an affiliated unit of the VYEA with the mission of gathering young entrepreneurs and enterprises with knowledge, enthusiasm, and aspirations in technology and digital transformation. Joining the Club will allow them to support each other to create more value and facilitate digital transformation. Under the Conference's agenda, the TDX Club signed its first partnership agreement with DTSI to develop a complete set of solutions for businesses according to current circumstances in Vietnam.
