Cloud Computing Overview for Nonprofits
What does migrating to the cloud really mean? In short, the cloud shifts hosted data from on-premises servers to remote servers hosted on the internet. Recent studies have shown that nonprofits are adopting the cloud to gain everyday productivity at an increasing rate. But, many are stretched too thin and lack time to even consider the benefits of migrating a financial system to the cloud. To help, we’ve put together this whitepaper, “Nonprofit Organizations Adopt Cloud Computing”, an essential “cheat sheet” for the busy executive that outlines how a transition to the cloud can enable more efficient and collaborative work, and vastly improve a nonprofit organization’s bottom line. We break the process of moving to the cloud into three steps:
- Identify and weigh benefits
- Recognize potential risks
- Establish a strategy
In this whitepaper, we delve into the biggest benefits including accessibility, outsourcing IT experts, disaster recovery, security, and flexibility. We also shine a spotlight on downtime, how to accomplish a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) comparison guide, steps to consider for a methodical migration, and other tips to help you determine your needs and complete a successful move. Migrations to the cloud can be overwhelming, but they don’t have to be!
