Sun Microsystems has announced that Alan Baratz, president of its Software Products and Platforms division, which was set up in May, has resigned to become managing director of an investment bank.
Baratz will remain at Sun until the middle of August, when he will take over the reins at Warburg Pincus & Co's Warburg Pincus Information Technology unit. For three years, he was the president of the Java Software business, overseeing Sun's efforts to increase the deployment of its Java programming language.
Baratz will be temporarily replaced by Jon Kannegaard, vice president and general manager of Sun’s Java Platform until the company finds a permanent replacement.
