Yet another success story from Israel. A storyinthe New York Times — Roots in Israel, Head in Silicon Valley:
Mercury Interactive, a Silicon Valley company with roots in Israel and offices in 25 countries, soon became a force in the new field of Web management. Its client list now includes about 75 percent of the nation’s 500 largest companies; government institutions like the State Department, Army, Navy and Air Force; CBS’s Survivor.com; and the author Stephen King. While software testing provides the bulk of Mercury’s business, Web management has grown to produce more than 20 percent of revenue in just over two years.
Now Mercury has repositioned itself again, having figured out a way to profit from the dot-com implosion by helping businesses tune information technology they already own.
