OAKLAND: Versata, Inc. (Nasdaq:VATA), a provider of software and services that automate the deployment of business logic and processes that power enterprise solutions, Friday announced the appointment of Dr. Alan E. Baratz, former CEO of Zaplet, Inc. and former president of the Software Products and Platforms (JavaSoft) division at Sun Microsystems, to its Board of Directors.

Dr. Baratz, 48, was until recently CEO of Zaplet, Inc., an enterprise software company focused on providing collaborative business process management solutions. He joined Zaplet from E.M. Warburg, Pincus & Co., LLC, a private equity and venture capital firm, where he was instrumental in building a number of new technology companies. Dr. Baratz formerly served as president of the Software Products and Platforms (JavaSoft) division at Sun Microsystems. In that role he led the growth and adoption of the Java platform from its infancy in 1996 to a robust platform supporting mission-critical applications in almost 80 percent of Fortune 1000 companies by 1999. Prior to Sun, Dr. Baratz was president and CEO of Delphi Internet, the online business unit of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation and held numerous senior management positions at IBM.

"With his extraordinary industry experience and his unique role in the development of the Java platform, Alan is a critical addition to our Board," said Eugene Wong, CEO, Versata. "We look forward to his contributions as we plan to build momentum in the market."

Dr. Baratz holds both a master's degree and a doctorate in computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and received a bachelor's degree in mathematics and computer science from UCLA.
