Matz, a high-tech software veteran and serial entrepreneur, has built and led world-class enterprise software companies globally. Previously, Matz was President and CEO of Aternity, Inc., a leading provider of End User Experience (EUE) and application performance monitoring solutions. Under Matz's leadership Aternity was repeatedly recognized by industry influencers and analysts as delivering best-in-class EUE solutions. With Matz at the helm, Aternity was embraced by household brands throughout every industry, leading to the company's 2016 acquisition by Riverbed Technology.
Prior to Aternity, Matz served as worldwide managing director of Application Integration for InterSystems Corporation where he took Ensemble from launch through recognition as the #1 Integration Platform in HealthCare. Before his global responsibilities for InterSystems integration initiative, Matz served as managing director for the Eastern Mediterranean, Middle East, India, and Africa.
