The birth of a niche buzzwords and the use of IVC data
Last week, we had the pleasure of participating in one of the most unique events held in the Israeli High-Tech industry – the 6th annual IMVC Conference. The event targeted a small niche of technology companies within the industry, many of which are affiliated with the cutting edge products and services we have been seeing in recent years.
