May 23-26, 2010

The Delegation will be arriving to Israel on Sunday afternoon. The program will start on Monday morning and continue through Wednesday/Thursday afternoon.

Why?

The secret’s out: When it comes to software companies the world over look to Israel for technological leadership.
According to a recent IDC report, Israel is one of the global hubs of software innovation. In fact, Israeli companies have been among the early entrants into the cloud computing space. The emerging Israeli cloud computing scene is a reflection of traditional fields of expertise in the local IT industry. This includes such areas as security, IT management, Web applications, automated software quality, telecoms applications, business intelligence, and various enterprise application domains – most notably, CRM, ERP, collaborative applications, HR management, knowledge and content management, and various industry-specific applications. In these areas and others, many Israeli companies are offering either pure-play SaaS solutions or SaaS solutions alongside their existing on premises offerings.
According to another IDC report Israel is one of the leaders in the world in IT security “Over the years, Israeli companies have been responsible for the development of some of the most innovative and groundbreaking security technologies and have become worldwide leaders in their domains. Israeli IT security companies were pioneers in various technology fields, such as firewall and network security, Web application security, authentication, encryption, DLP, Web security, and anti-fraud.”

By visiting Israel, you can experience this expertise yourself!
