Senior Consultant

“SaaS and PaaS billing systems are a new breed of application, enabling organizations to operate more nimbly as consumer expectations continue to shift. In order to realize the maximum value from these systems, project teams must bring to bear a laser focus on business analysis, an executable design, and rigorous quality assurance.”Mitch Colyer

Experience

Mitch’s career is grounded in ATG’s delivery team, where he has matured from a “boots on the ground” Implementation Consultant (IC) to Solution Architect (SA) and Quote-2-Cash Subject Matter Expert (SME). Mitch provides a unique blend of skills, marrying rigorous business analysis expertise with application specific solutions and industry best practice thought leadership.

Much of Mitch’s background resides on the Aria platform, where he’s filled the shoes of solution architect in the data backup & recovery, automotive, and online marketing industries. His skills span to the same role in the Salesforce ecosystem as the platform’s footprint in the quote-to-revenue practice continues to expand.

With his extensive focus on delivery, Mitch understands the importance addressing business requirements systematically with an executable plan. In addition to best practice recommendations and application-specific designs he delivers on his project, Mitch is keen on charting the course from design document to post-go live. Adopting a new – and often foreign – system is a daunting undertaking, and Mitch prides himself on his ability to guide all teams from day one to the finish line.

When not working, Mitch is an avid outdoorsman. He is happy to be plopped down in the middle seat of his drift boat rowing friends and family all over Montana’s rivers when the weather permits. When not on the water, he enjoys archery hunting, skiing, and ultra-marathon running (as much as on can enjoy that last one). Mitch also covets a nice warm bowl of applesauce.

Viewpoint

“Technology projects are difficult, and you’re kidding yourself if you think otherwise. I find great value in solving quoting, ordering, and billing problems that result in a high ROI without losing sight of the importance of strong project governance and the right technical fit. SaaS and PaaS billing systems are a new breed of application, enabling organizations to operate more nimbly as consumer expectations continue to shift. In order to realize the maximum value from these systems, project teams must bring to bear a laser focus on business analysis, an executable design, and rigorous quality assurance.

I value teamwork over skill in any discipline, and believe a sharp team can have a profound impact on the transformation of a company’s back office. I enjoy working on an ambitious team that is constantly challenging all members to think deeper and grow their skills.”
