What Cloud Computing Can Do For You and Your Grantees?
Webinar | Wednesday, October 3, 2012 | 2:00 p.m. ET
What’s going on in the cloud? You hear the buzz but do you know the basics? If you’ve used email then you’re already on the cloud—grants, membership, and project management are all on the cloud, too. The outlook is cloudy, though--how should philanthropic organizations and the nonprofits they work with be thinking about cloud-based solutions? This webinar will present ways to think about cloud strategies, including criteria for what makes sense to do in the cloud and what makes sense to “keep local.” Presenter Allen Gunn, executive director at Aspiration, will lift the veil on the cloud conundrum. This webinar is free to GMN members but advanced registration is required. Register now!
