Integration software provider webMethods, Inc.
has named Len Pomata, former president and vhief executive officer of Litton PRC, as president of webMethods Federal, a new business unit of webMethods. Pomata will spearhead the continuing development of webMethods’ federal practice, designing a strategic plan, building relationships with partners and agencies, and reviewing marketplace needs, product positioning, and sales approaches.
Pomata, who has been in the industry for 30 years, was at Litton PRC for 18 years in a wide variety of positions, serving his last five years, until 2000, as president and CEO. He built Litton PRC into a federal giant of over 7,000 employees and $800 million in revenues. Northrop Grumman subsequently acquired Litton PRC. During 2001, Pomata served as senior vice president of Oracle, in charge of business development for a number of its vertical industries.
“This is a seminal day in webMethods’ history,” said Phillip Merrick, chairman and CEO of the Fairfax, Va.-based company. “To date, we have had a number of outstanding government engagements, but the untapped integration opportunity within this market is enormous. We are excited that someone with Len’s extensive experience has joined the team and will be able to extend our presence in a market very much in need of what we offer. We are located in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol, and we are ready to deploy the energy and resources necessary to dominate this marketplace.”

The company has more than 750 customers worldwide including Global 2000 leaders such as Citibank, Dell, Eastman Chemical, The Ford Motor Company, Grainger, and Motorola. webMethods’ strategic partners include Accenture, AMS, BMC Software, BroadVision, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, Deloitte Consulting, EDS, Hewlett-Packard, i2 Technologies, J.D.
