Many organizations are looking to SharePoint to provide easier access to documents, more robust collaboration and sharing capabilities, versioning, and dynamic records management. These are all features that can benefit most organizations, and are beyond the capacity of the traditional file server. But to begin to build a new Information Architecture for SharePoint, you must really understand your content. What files does your organization generate? Our methodology will help you draw up an outline of the content types in your organization.

I just returned from the 16th Annual Nonprofit Technology Conference (or 16NTC as it is often known).  The NTC is unlike any other conference and brings together a diverse group of nonprofit technology professionals, enthusiasts and advocates.

Monday’s hacking at MedStar came one month after a Los Angeles hospital paid hackers $17,000 to regain control of its computer system, which hackers had seized with ransomware using an infected email attachment. - PBS Newshour

"..the reality (is) that an entire sport’s advanced metrics wing can be wiped off the map by a few nerds absconding with a few hard drives and turning off their phones. This is a corollary to the more global lack of statistical interrogation of women’s basketball — the data isn’t just shallow, it’s scarce, and that scarcity makes it fragile."

–FiveThirtyEight “A Website Went Offline And Took Most of Women’s College Basketball Analytics With It”
This FiveThirtyEight article today struck me as highly relevant to our nonprofit tech community, especially as we explore moving data and documents online and to the cloud. Many of our clients and partners are chasing data that either drives their work or backs up their achievements - much of it shallow and often scarce. Do you have a good handle on where the essential data crucial to your organization lives, who has access to it, and who contr...

If you missed our free webinar this month, you can catch up on the slides and recording here. Our SharePoint process has come to feel like an un-sales process – we gather the stakeholders, executives, and IT personnel together and spell out for them everything that can go wrong. If they are still interested and invested in the business benefits after hearing the negatives, well then we know we can move forward as a team.

Came across this story on a start up that sells on-site storage devices, which can store 16 petabytes of data – five times conventional storage products now available.  I can imagine tons of nonprofit uses from natural resources to health and human services to other advocacy work where clients, materials, and big data need to be tracked and studied. 
“Health care, manufacturing and natural resources companies can all justify owning this much storage. In 10 years, a big sanitation company with sensors on its Dumpsters to manage pickups could have tens of petabytes.” - NYTimes.com

Where Technology Meets Mission
Introduction
Community IT Innovators is a Washington, D.C. based IT consultancy providing technical staff and strategic technology support to nonprofit organizations. 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.
