Introduction: Founded in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, in 1902 as a shipbuilding and ship-repair company, the Manitowoc Company, Inc., has grown and diversified into the multi-industry capital goods manufacturer it is today. With more than 100 manufacturing and services facilities in 27 countries, 12,000 employees, and $4.5 billion in annual sales (2008), Manitowoc has global reach. It is recognized as one of the world’s largest providers of lifting equipment for the global construction industry, including lattice-boom cranes, tower cranes, mobile telescopic cranes, and boom trucks.
Maintaining the global IT infrastructure necessary for Manitowoc’s business operations is vital to the company’s continued success. A central part of those efforts is ensuring that its hundreds of servers and thousands of workstations are maintained within its internal IT security policy, that misconfigurations are spotted and fixed, and that outdated patch levels are made current. This, most security experts agree, will ensure that systems not only run more smoothly, but also make them resilient to attack and infiltration.Click here to read more on Manitowoc Company, Inc

After becoming a publicly listed company on the Singapore stock exchange in 2003, AnnAik expanded its business upstream—opening manufacturing plants in China—and downstream—expanding into engineering construction and environmental business.
This broad integration is a key competitive differentiator for AnnAik. However, the company didn’t have the information flow it needed to run an integrated business. “Our vision was for information to flow smoothly from our plants in China to our distribution office in Singapore,” Ng says.
