Community IT partner Build Consulting discusses how to evaluate whether your organization should make the move to NXT. As organizations think about constituent relationship management (CRM) and information strategy, the move to NXT should not be approached as a simple upgrade, but as a high stakes decision that should be evaluated and planned for.

Last month, Microsoft announced a re-alignment of its engineering teams into three new divisions:  Windows and Devices, Cloud and Enterprise, and Applications and Services.  This change represents a reversal of previous Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s attempt to unify the company around a single strategy.

Over the past 15 years, I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of nonprofit organizations, with a lot of lessons learned. One of the most important has been the difficulty and the importance of leadership transitions; especially when they involve the founder of the organization.

July marks a significant transition for us at Community IT.  First, we're very pleased to announce that on July 11th Johan Hammerstrom will be promoted from his current role as President to a combined CEO & President role.  Johan has been running core business operations for several years, and with all the members of the Community IT Board we look forward to his continued success and leadership at the head of Community IT.

Simultaneously, we’re merging Community IT’s Information Strategy Consulting practice with Build Consulting and our Founder and former CEO David Deal will join the new organization to continue providing this valuable service to the nonprofit sector.  At Build David will continue his path of the last few years providing information systems consulting and utilizing his 20+ years of experience providing technology to nonprofits to address issues of impact and structure in new arenas.

None of this happened by accident.  We have worked hard over the years to ensure that Community IT and its legacy of mission-focused nonprofit work survives long term.  Read more on our site:

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.
