|Matt Liotta started his development career at the age of twelve by
building C applications for faculty at Emory University. He built his
first web page soon after the release of Mosaic 1.0. Excited by
early web applications, Matt saw the potential to replace legacy
client server applications. At Emory University he built an
enterprise calendaring system, the faculty poster project, a Y2K
compliance tracking application, and a prototype for an electronic
research administration system. Since then he worked with an
early ASP, Cignify, to build their transaction processing system for payroll time data.
Matt did consulting around San Francisco for companies such as Williams Sonoma and
Yipes Communications. Soon after, he built gMoney's Group Transaction System using
an innovative XML messaging architecture that matches conceptually with the now
popular web services paradigm. Later at TeamToolz, he designed a highly secure and
scalable network architecture to support N-tier transport agnostic distributed applications.
He then went on to implement a cutting-edge content management system for DevX. He
is now President & CEO of Montara Software, which he founded recently.
