Looking back to the past and continuing the present:
The Tech Trends of 2018 and 2019
One of the leaders in Vietnam IT sector
Orient Software Development Corporation has been named as one of “TOP 50 ICT COMPANIES IN VIETNAM 2018”. This announcement was published by The Vietnam Software Association (VINASA) on Tuesday, September 18th, 2018.

People are always at the center of everything we do at Orient Software. We are committed to empowering people both in our company and in professional community in Vietnam.

2018 Company Trip with Orient
For as long as business has existed, travel has benefitted it in many unique ways. You might even say that it’s because of business travel that so many companies are able to evolve and expand at lightning speeds.
Your partner in Software Development
When you make the decision to consider selecting an outsourcing team, there are many factors which you need to take into account in order to make the best decision for your company. Thanks to the developments of modern technology, and new, innovative method of communication, working with an outsourcing team from a long distance is not as big an obstacle as it once was.
Why peer assessment matters?
Apart from the annual staff evaluations which are standard at Orient Software Development (OSD), we also conduct a peer assessment review, which is named The Quarterly Awards. This review is different from the formal reviews done by the managers and supervisors, as it involves the direct experiences of certain staff members with their fellow employees.
The next big step for Internet
Remember Project 2501, the code that becomes self-aware “in the sea of information” in the near future? Predicted in the movie Ghost in the Shell (1995), a program that formed an identity was firmly science fiction – but as times change, we occasionally find our dreams becoming reality.
What is scrum in outsourcing?
Have you ever seen a rugby scrum? To those unfamiliar with the game, it looks like – well, a scrum of sweaty characters packed tight in a group, wearing matching shirts and trousers for no apparent reason. However, if you know what you're looking at, you can see two teams trying to the best of their abilities to provide a good product – the excitement and furor that is rugby – to their customers – the audience. The goal of Scrum in software development is exactly the same, and effective team play is likewise needed. Here at Orient Software, though, Scrum is likely to involve more coffee, an air conditioning, and just a little less physical contact.
Outsource to Vietnam brings potential
After a trade embargo was lifted in the mid-1990s, Vietnam, along with China, became a new destination for industrial production and services. This is perhaps most apparent in the field of IT. Within IT, Vietnam is a popular outsourcing location among other industry giants such as China, India, and the Philippines. This is due to a large, young and dedicated IT labor force. Given this economic history, how did Vietnam create this talented workforce creating amazing software and applications?

Are you using a desktop computer at the calm of your home, a mobile device like laptop or tablet in a noisy café or a smartphone on a bouncing bus? The experience might be quite different. Because of the different platforms, all of these devices ask for a different design of a website or an application.
