Leading Cloud Innovator Scott Metzger Joins Sonoa Systems

IT Industry Veteran to Direct Customer and Partner Development

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2010) -  Sonoa Systems, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise API management solutions, today announced that Scott Metzger has joined the executive team. In this new role, Metzger will work closely with Sonoa's customers and partners, providing first-hand insight and advice to companies driving new revenue services and innovation with APIs.

Metzger comes to Sonoa from TransUnion Interactive, where he was chief technology officer overseeing engineering, IT and security. In this role, Metzger introduced the API for TransUnion's Interactive division. Through this experience in exposing an API that handles critical data on a massive scale, Metzger will bring customer experience and perspective to his new role working with companies as they implement similar initiatives with Sonoa's API management solutions and infrastructure. Prior to TransUnion Interactive, Metzger worked as a senior consultant on a number of initiatives at Cal Poly's media lab in partnership with IBM, Sun, MCI, Intel and Apple. Other experience includes senior systems consultant at Baxter International's corporate R&D group, and software engineer at medical software startup Zmode.

"Enterprises are realizing that tectonic changes in mobile and cloud computing are driving the need for API infrastructure and solutions," said Chet Kapoor, CEO of Sonoa Systems. "Having worked on the customer side of this equation, Scott will be a great resource for real-world knowledge as we continue to help customers accelerate and scale their API strategy."

Metzger added, "I've worked with Sonoa in the past as a customer and having implemented an API for both internal and external use, I look forward to sharing what I have learned with others who are looking to leverage APIs for their own business. In many instances, customers are just starting to evaluate how to implement and manage APIs as a new aspect of their business. Sonoa can accelerate the rollout as well as offload many of the management aspects that would otherwise need to be developed and maintained internally. I'll be working through these scenarios with our customers to make sure they get the most out of the API for their bottom line."

In the past year, Sonoa has added several customers who are leveraging the cloud through open APIs and Sonoa's solutions for manageability, including MTV Networks, MySpace, TransUnion Interactive, Guardian Insurance and Alcatel-Lucent, among others.
