Matisse Software Appoints Vice President of Marketing

Burlingame, CA - September 24, 2003 Matisse Software Inc., today announced the appointment of Claude Ezran as Vice President of Marketing.

In his new role, Ezran is responsible for all corporate marketing, product marketing and strategic activities for the company.

“We are seeing substantial momentum around our post-relational SQL database within the .NET and Java developer communities,” said Didier Cabannes, CEO of Matisse Software. “Claude’s track record in focusing on customers’ needs and bringing innovative products to market, as well as his broad management experience bring additional strength to Matisse’s management team and provide the executive leadership necessary to address this market opportunity."

Most recently, Ezran was Director of Product Marketing for Enterprise Imaging Solutions at Adobe Systems Inc. He was with the ePaper Solutions Group, the group responsible for the widely successful Acrobat product line. Prior to Adobe, he was Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Strategy at Xerox ColorgrafX Systems, a manufacturer of large format printers for the graphics art market. He was also Product Line Manager for network adapters at 3Com, a business that he helped grow from $50 to $250M in five years. Ezran also held a variety of management positions in Marketing and Finance with Intel Corporation. He has an MBA from Harvard Business School and an MSEE from Ecole Superieure d’Electricite in France.

“Matisse has an outstanding solution for database architects confronted with very complex business or scientific models” said Ezran. “Traditional relational database management systems with their two-dimensional tables, are reaching unacceptable limits in terms of development complexity, maintainability, total cost of ownership and performance. Matisse provides developers with a simpler alternative. Using common object modeling languages they can more easily manage complexity while at the same time preserving compatibility with the standards they are used to, such as SQL and XML.”
