[Savvycom Insight] A Story about Our Super Hero

“I have worked with him for 2 years and never stop admiring him.”

This compliment represents the appreciation of a Savvycom senior for Mr. Tue Nguyen – Solution Architect at the company. Tue was one of very first Savvycom members. With the founder team, he set solid initial steps for our company. Tue has won the Employee of the Year award for 7 consecutive years. It’s time to know more about this incredible guy.

What drove you to become a solution architect?

It was 2 years ago, my 4th year working at Savvycom. At that time, I had undergone numerous projects and had worked with different clients. Many of them had come to us with only vague ideas in their hands. We needed to consult them and recommend technology. I found it interesting to work both with clients and technical team to find out the best solution that satisfies project requirements and results in more effective operation.

profile 1

What interests you the most about this job?

As a technology lover, I love everything about this job. I have been keen on complex problem solving and providing the latest technological solutions that fit those problems. I am also drawn to learn new technology. As you know, technology is moving so fast that requires you to learn new skills to stay up-to-date as a software architect. The to-do list seems never ends.

Have you ever been under so much pressure that you want to give up? Can you share some lessons learnt after overcoming those hard times?

The nature of my job requires me to constantly study and update the latest knowledge. However, there were times that I delivered less optimal solutions. With every mistake made, I always consider it as a chance to learn and to do better when encountering other projects. Blog

As IT is now among the hottest sectors in Vietnam, many young people want to pursue a career in software engineering? Do you have any advice for fresh graduate students?

As any fresh-graduated, I had suffered hard times after being kicked out of college. Actual work wasn’t like what I had imagined. Real work experience was far different what from I had learnt in college. My advice is to accept challenges without hesitation, you will gain precious and useful experience in the end. Do what you have never done before, get out of your comfort-zone, trust yourself along the way. Work with passion and you will surely succeed.

What do you remember the most in your first few years with Savvycom?

My first few years at Savvycom was really unforgettable. Back then, I worked as a Java developer. I had little knowledge on mobile development and never prepared for it. Everything changed when a German customer brought an iPod Touch then told us to develop an application for it. That first time using iPod touch and iOS operating system intrigued and brought me a lot of excitement. Since then, I have been engaged

You have been involved in many mobile app projects. What is your favourite one?

I would say Camellia. This is an iOS app that allows users to process and manage PDF files with many features. The project helped me gain a lot of experience, from design applications (software architecture design), 2D graphics processing to data synchronisation. There were times that new technical difficulties arose that seemed unable to resolve. However, after so many efforts not to mention client’s generous support, my team finished the project with excellent results, beyond client’s expectations.

What does other colleague say about Tue:

“Tue has an amazing ability to enduring pressure. As a team leader, he is very dedicated. Once there were unfamiliar technical issues arising in our project. It had never happened before, and we couldn’t figure out the solution. However, Tue got the key to solving problems. His solution amazed the whole team for how creative and efficient it was. With colleagues, Tue was a helpful and enthusiastic co-worker. Personally, I enjoy working with him”.

The Emerging Tech Trends and Their Impacts – Savvycom COO Interview

Minh Nguyen

Savvycom COO – Minh Nguyen

As we are saying goodbye to the year of the Sheep, technology trend topic is in our spotlight. We had a special talk with Mr. Minh Nguyen. As a Chief Operating Officer, since 2009, Minh has helped built up Savvycom to a top software outsourcing company in Vietnam today. He has managed various software development projects and always impressed clients with his extensive technical knowledge, skills and his credibility. We had a good conversation about Minh’s reflection on some big technologies and trends of 2015, which are IoT, SMAC, Virtual Reality. Now let’s have a look on what we discussed in details:

What are the top technologies that you see in 2015?

In my opinion, 2015 has been a prosperous year for many technologies. However, I am really concerned with the significant emergence of these following: Internet of Things, S.M.A.C and Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality.

Regarding IoT, I bet we all now have become more familiar with smart devices, which have the ability to gather data and connect to the Internet around us. We can easily buy a Smart TV, a smartwatch (products from Apple and Samsung) or wearable devices such as Misfit or Fitbit on the market or even a large object like a self-driving card of Google.

Especially, this trend does not only initiate changes in hardware companies but also influence software development companies; in a way that they need to build applications with capabilities to gather and analyze data received from those devices and equipment. For example, at Savvycom, we have been working on a mobile application system to connect with a fitness band to analyze health data and give a meaningful report on personal healthcare.

The next trend I want to talk about is SMAC model, which stands for Social, Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud. This technology model is the integration of all the above four technologies. For example, while social media enable a wide reach and new ways to interact with customers, analytics can help a business to gain deeper insights about them. Moreover, the migration from a weak computing system to Cloud also empower the data and technology accessibility of multiple mobile devices.

The last one is Virtual/ Augmented Reality. This technology helps create a virtual via 3D glasses or a 3D camera. I think this technology has raised a new wave of breakthrough products such as Oculus VR (bought and developed by Facebook) or HoloLens by Microsoft.

How those technologies transform the way companies do their business? Can you give some examples?

As I mentioned above, with the Internet of Things, there will be more and more things, devices and equipment get connected and transfer data over the Internet. This will help save the labor effort and increase the productivity of many different fields and industries. In addition, it will assist business a lot in gathering, analyzing and computing data accurately.

In terms of SMAC, gradually, companies will not have to use and maintain software on traditional PCs; instead, they will use mostly Software as a service available on the Internet. This will enable them to calculate the data size easier and reduce the maintenance cost of hardware and system. Moreover, with mobile devices, now people can do their business conveniently, anywhere, at any time.

About virtual reality, I think it brings greater experience and more interactions to users. In the future, this technology can be applied well in the retail industry, for example, to help enhance the customer experience with a new product line.

What will be the next big things in 2016?

Well, in my opinion, the Internet of Things and SMAC services will continue to dominate the IT sector. These technologies will be strongly developed and applied in many facets of life as well as enterprises.

So for companies that looking forward to implementing those technologies in the coming year, what are your recommendations to get started?

I think for Vietnamese companies, they should start to explore, invest and find ways to apply Cloud services more in their business processes. In the near future, this is also what companies from over the world will do as well.

Thank you so much for your sharing, Mr. Minh.

After a year of hard work, we decided to throw a camping party for our beloved staffs to celebrate SAVVYCOM 6th birthday. On November 14th, there was no more hard work, no more pressure; there were just only us, relaxing and having fun together under the sunshine.

The quiet atmosphere in the car was quickly transformed to excitement by the entertaining games led by Hai Le. We were divided into teams and had to compete with each other. The game was so interesting and attracted everyone so that we almost didn’t notice when we arrived at the Ecopark.
