IATI's 1st Multi-National R&D Centers Conference 2012Mar. 29, 2012
The Multinational Companies Forum is an active forum within the IATI led by Microsoft Israel GM, Yoram Yaacovi and SAP’s Managing Director, Mickey Steiner. A regular gathering of the most exciting high tech companies meet to address the common challenges they, and the industry, face on a daily basis: increasing competition from emerging markets, proving to corporate centers that Israel is continuously evolving and reinventing itself as an exciting hub for innovation and cutting edge technology.
Companies such as Microsoft, Cisco, Intel, SAP, EMC, RSA, Google, IBM, Broadcom, Marvell, Cadence, Alcatel Lucent, Applied Materials, Oracle and Sears are opening new centers, investing, researching and developing in Israel, bringing with them invaluable international expertise and a corporate culture that keeps Israel ahead of the game in spite of our size.
This conference was organized by IATI in collaboration with Invest In Israel, part of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor.
The conference came to shows that Israel is pushing the envelope in the realms of search, ux, cloud, semi-conductors and just about every exciting technology today. Some of the R&D centers grew here following acquisitions; others were established by senior executives who saw the opportunities our startup nation promised big corporate giants. It seems that every few weeks more big companies are looking to open R&D centers here, with household names such as Intel, Cisco, Apple and Lenovo to name but a few.
