We’ve learned a thing or two about moving in our 20+ years of working with nonprofits, and we want to help you get through it without tears. We’ll share our office move checklist with you to help keep you on track. Share your office move happy endings/disaster stories with us @CommunityIT before 4pm September 15th and we’ll discuss the best ones in the webinar.

This quarter as we focus on IT project management, I’d like to share this article from our friend Peter Campbell, first published over on TechSoup and on his excellent blog TechCafeteria.

We’ve been focused the past few months on SharePoint and other cloud file server solutions. With all the questions coming in, Steve Longenecker and Johanny Torrico thought it was an ideal time to update a series of FAQ blog posts they did about SharePoint a few years back.

With all up-to-date information these two posts answer such perennial questions as

what system prerequisites you need
what file servers we recommend and why
how much storage you get
what metadata is
whether you can ditch your server after moving to the cloud
and more!

If you missed our presentation on our methodology for nonprofit managers who need to manage an IT project Thursday, you can find the free slides and video on our site. This webinar talks about discovering your business needs and linking them to IT initiatives, and how to plan to gather metrics and demonstrate ROI. We address roles and responsibilities, planning, implementation, follow up, and how to hire consultants and vet vendors. Though we focus our discussion on IT infrastructure projects nonprofits might seek to undertake, there's lots here for managing any IT project.

Free webinar tomorrow (Thursday) June 16th 4-5pm EDT This month Community IT Innovators is comparing alternatives to SharePoint for online cloud file sharing solutions for nonprofits. Have you wondered what the differences were between Box and Dropbox? What about Google Drive? What would work best for your organization? Johanny Torrico and Steve Longenecker will walk through what to expect from these systems, how to frame the decision for your organization, and whether you would benefit from SharePoint, one of the alternatives, or sticking with an on-premise file server. Join us from 4-5pm EDT June 16th!

This month, we shift our focus to alternative document management platforms, such as Dropbox, which will be the primary focus of our June 16th Webinar: Alternatives to SharePoint.

Johanny Torrico and Steve Longenecker will take you through different business cases where SharePoint would not be a time, cost, or cultural fit for an organization. As a solution agnostic IT support firm, Community IT has a wealth of experience in implementing Dropbox, Box, Google Drive and other cloud-based document management solutions. Johanny and Steve will compare and contrast what these different solutions do, how they can work for users, and how to frame the decision for your organization.

SharePoint can deliver incredible value, but is also a major undertaking. In other words, there is significant return, but also a substantial investment required. This quarter we are examining how to prepare for a SharePoint implementation, how to create the information architecture to migrate your documents to SharePoint, and comparing file storage and management cloud solutions for nonprofits.

Introduction

We commit to long-term, collaborative partnerships with our customers. This enables us to be the “in-house” expertise, building and maintaining appropriate IT infrastructure to meet current and future goals.

We have focused exclusively on nonprofit technology since 1993, and our staff of about 40 provide the depth and expertise needed for the broad range of technologies in use at nonprofits today.  To our knowledge, we are the only company from among the top 200 managed IT services providers in North America that is focused exclusively on nonprofit technology support.  We have certifications in all of the major (and some less common) technologies in use at nonprofit organizations today.

We serve customers primarily in the DC and Baltimore areas and take on select engagements across the United States, with customers ranging in size from a few staff to several hundred.  

Community IT is 100% employee owned through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan, leaving us free to make decisions based on the long-term best interests of both employees and customers.
We have a strong commitment to a triple bottom line of financial, social, and environmental results.  This commitment has been recognized by groups like Greater DC Cares, the Sustainable Business Network of Washington, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, and other organizations, publications, and media outlets.
