Amy Sample Ward is the CEO of NTEN, who mission is to “support organizations by convening the nonprofit community, offering professional credentials and training, and facilitating an open exchange of ideas.” NTEN has a variety of research and reports available to assist nonprofit organizations, and has recently released an update to their previous work on nonprofits using cloud-based resources.
The State of the Nonprofit Cloud 2018, produced in conjunction with Microsoft, is available for free download. The report reveals a great deal of information about how all sizes of nonprofits are using internet-accessed resources to accomplish their missions. Amy joins host Steve Boland to talk about the findings, including the difference in adoption for different types of software or needs, how security plays into these decisions, and how attracting and keeping the right workforce can be a primary driver in cloud-computing decisions.
