u   Pioneer of integrated global IT management service industry 


This integrated global IT management is receiving praise for bringing groundbreaking changes
to the global IT management service industry in Korea. 

First of all, this is the first case in Korea where a multinational company is developing a global
IT management, and maintenance service solely with a domestic IT firm via a strategic
partnership. Metanet has expertise in building integrated IT management systems in various
industries including food∙beverages, and other consumer goods. It was recognized as the
optimal strategic partner to carry out Orion’s global IT management integration for the long
term. 
Second, Daewoo Information Systems will take on long-term operations and
management of the 
globally integrated IT system. DIS has expertise in both establishing
and managing integrated systems. 

This means Orion will be able to focus on planning and implementing core strategies.
This in turn will bring business efficiency to another level.

Orion plans to focus on its core competencies to grow as a global business. In the beginning
of the year, the company announced its goals to establish a global system to integrate the
management of research and development, quality and safety, equipment and facilities.
This would allow for continuous growth in the global market including China. When the current
IT management integration is complete, Orion will have laid out its fundamentals for globally
integrated management.

Metanet Global Executive Director Kim Jae Young who led this project commented,
“We focused on establishing an IT system which could comply with the changes in domestic
and international business environment, keep it stable and continuously improve it as well.”
He added, “The integrated IT system will play an integral role to enhance Orion’s global competitiveness and carry out its global business strategies.”
