IT Trends for Nonprofits
Wednesday, November 7, 2012 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EST)
To celebrate DCWeek, Community IT Innovators invites you to participate in a lively discussion and dialogue about the latest nonprofit IT trends. If you can't make it to the event, feel free to join us afterwards at Local 16 for a happy hour from 5:30-6:30 pm.
Johan Hammerstrom, Vice President of Client Services, will look back at 2012 and discuss some recent IT trends and innovations. He will look ahead to 2013 and outline some possible trends that could have a significant impact on nonprofits.
David Dawson, Senior Systems Engineer, will take us on a tour of Windows 8 running on a desktop and highlight the new ways of using the new operating system. See the biggest changes that Microsoft has ever made to how you interact with Windows and be ready to make your own assessment of whether you should skip this version, delay your purchase, or rush out and get it.
Cedric Boyd, Network Engineer, will talk about the benefits and challenges of moving your organization’s email to the cloud using Office 365 and Google Apps. He will share case studies of organizations that have moved to both platforms, issues they faced in the transition, and costs involved with moving to these cloud platforms.
Brett Kramer, Network Manager, will share some tips for creating and managing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. With the proliferation of tablets, and mobile phones, employees are accessing organizational email and files on a variety of devices, which requires organizations to come up with a policy for managing devices to maintain the security of their data without adversely impacting productivity gains from new devices.
The presentations will be followed by a community dialogue with the audience. After the event everyone is invited to join us for a happy hour at Local 16 from 5:30-6:30 pm. No RSVP is required for the happy hour.
