Composite Software, Inc. Expands Consulting Services

Composite Software, Inc., the data virtualization leader, today announced it has recruited industry veteran, Marc Breissinger, as executive vice president to lead Composite’s new, enterprise-level consulting practice.

In this newly created role that reports to Composite Software’s CEO Jim Green, Breissinger will establish an enterprise-level consulting practice that covers enterprise data virtualization strategy and architecture, low-latency data strategy and architecture, services-based data sharing strategy and architecture, and data Integration Competency Center (ICC) strategy and implementation.

The new services team will complement the company’s existing Professional Services group that provides traditional project-level services such as planning, architecture, installation, design, development and operation consulting, as well as Composite’s SI partners who offer a wide range of IT strategy and implementation services in and around the company’s data virtualization technology.

“As our larger customers transition from project-basis to enterprise-wide data virtualization deployments, their use cases naturally require a large-scale approach that addresses more complex organizational, architectural and technology issues,” said Green. “Marc’s high-caliber experience with integration technologies in both the commercial and government arenas perfectly matches our customers’ needs for a strong vision and practical architecture.”

In addition to defining the new services, Breissinger will also guide customer engagements from planning to delivery; coordinate customer, partner and Composite teams; and ensure successful Composite technology deployments.

“Composite’s data virtualization offerings let enterprises share data easily, which can result in significant increases in revenue and productivity, and significant decreases in costs and risks,” said Breissinger. “My job will be to marshal the technology, partners and architecture required, so customers achieve these benefits quickly and at a scale that makes a significant difference.”

The expanded enterprise-level consulting practice will architect large-scale solutions using Composite’s award-winning data virtualization middleware including:

  • Composite Information Server™ 5.0 (newly upgraded and released in May 2009; features tandem design environments for XML/Java/Web services and SQL development as well as contract-first Web services development),
  • Composite Discovery™,
  • Composite Active Cluster,
  • Composite Application Data Services for popular packaged applications, and
  • Composite BI Accelerator™.

“We have worked with Composite’s services team to successfully implement Composite’s products in enterprise-scale settings since 2006, and we understand the transformation challenges customers face,” said Tony Bishop, founder and CEO of Adaptivity, a Composite SI partner headquartered in Charlotte, N. C. “Adding Marc and his team further strengthens Composite’s offerings, and our mutual ability to provide IT solutions that meet business needs.”

Breissinger recently served as CTO at SPADAC, a McLean, Va.-based technology and government services firm specializing in geospatial predictive analytics, where he led a team implementing an enterprise-collaborative workflow system to improve the missions of the US DOD and Intelligence Community. As CTO at webMethods, Breissinger designed the award-winning Fabric product suite that includes data integration, business process management (BPM), business activity monitoring (BAM), composite application development, and SOA infrastructure and governance components. Breissinger began his career as a consultant for Chicago’s ZS Associates and spent a number of years as a senior manager at Anderson Consulting (now Accenture). Breissinger is a graduate of Yale University.
