The Who & The What
About me, my approach, and the services I provide.
Concept Driven, Process Savvy
My name is Matthew Moran. I'm a Los Angeles based software developer and technology consultant. While I love Los Angeles, I serve clients in Arizona, New York, Florida, Ohio, The United Kingdom, France, & Australia.
I authored an approach to technology solution titled, Concept Over Process (COP). COP places the emphasis where it should be: on the client's business, NOT on the technology used. It is included in my book, Building Your IT Career (published by Pearson), which is used in colleges around the world to teach business-centric IT. If you'd like a copy of that chapter, just ask and I'll send it to you.
I help organizations by automating business processes, document assembly, and financial reporting. I also provide coaching and training to help your team become better - helping business and data analysts better use the tools at their disposal.
Interested? Contact me.
