In 1999, Actimize was founded in Silicon Wadi, an area with a high concentration of high-tech industries in the coastal plain in Israel, similar to Silicon Valley in California by Israeli ex-army colleagues who specialized in business intelligence and data warehousing. The company focused its attention on building packaged trading compliance, anti-money laundering and fraud prevention software solutions for the financial services industry. Actimize was acquired by NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) in July 2007 for $280 million[15] and has grown into one of three of NICE’s main lines of business.
