Indian software giant eyes Israeli companies

Infosys presents new content sharing platform, considers cooperation with Israeli firms

A delegation from Indian software company Infosys visited Israel early May, and presented the Infosys labstorm initiative. The software giant, one of India’s 30 largest companies, was hosted by the Israeli export institute.

The Infosys labstorm initiative is a technological content sharing platform. It offers companies, investors and businesses to share and view demos and PR videos of technological products, software and firms.

To promote collaboration between Israeli technologies and Infosys, the Israeli export institute invited dozens of Israeli technology, software, communication, new media and energy companies to meet the Indian delegation. Among the participants were Radware, Checkmarx, leviathan Energy Inc, Safend and CQM.

Infosys is a leading information technology company which provides business solutions, technology, engineering and outsourcing services to costumers in 30 countries.

In 1999 Infosys became the first India-based public company to be listed on an American stock exchange, the NASDAQ. In 2001 it was crowned “best employer in India,” and in 2003-2004 Infosys was the first Indian company to win the MAKE (Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises) award.

Yafit Katz Rubin, director of software department in the export institute said the innovative initiative may become the next big thing in technology marketing.

“We believe that the unique meeting will become a fertile ground for further cooperation between the software giants and Israeli firms,” she said.
