Viewpoint

“IT projects are inherently difficult. Add to that any number of complex business concepts, such as enterprise billing, order management, taxation, and revenue recognition to name a few, and you increase the project’s complexity dramatically. Do that project in a multi-tenant SaaS environment, and you have the makings some of the most challenging projects undertaken in the business world today.”

“It takes interdisciplinary teams of problem solvers, working at the cross-section of people, process, and technology, to take on projects of this nature and to be successful. This is where ATG thrives – helping the enterprise get to the cloud, and helping the cloud get to the enterprise. Consulting in this space requires a special kind of person, one not commonly found in the wild.”
