We're pleased to announce a new report from Idealware sponsored by Community IT Innovators and free to download from their site. It’s now possible for organizations to move their systems to the Cloud–not just their databases but their office productivity software, file servers, and even their telephone service. In this report Idealware presents five case studies of real-world nonprofits using Cloud solutions to explore their decision-making processes and the lessons they’ve learned.

As an IT manager, you keep the emails flowing, the data backing up, and the website live – it’s your job. One of the biggest challenges you may have to face is to manage an office move. Moment of panic when you “flip the switch” the first day? We’ve all been there.

In this webinar Community IT Innovators office move experts William Maxwell and Rick Alloway present with humor and wit the best practices to pursue, and pitfalls to avoid. You will come away with a pre-move timeline for your planning.

To prepare for this month’s webinar on planning and managing an office move from the IT standpoint, I’ve been googling. And googling. And googling. Lots of mover sites with checklists on moving your physical stuff to your new office, lots of advice on moving your nonprofit across state lines (phew! If you are doing that, good luck!) – but not a lot out there on how to manage the IT side of your move. Which is surprising, when we know many – most? – horror stories have to do with calling your internet provider over and over as your email still isn’t up days after your move!

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.

How often do you perform a systems check to assess your level of vulnerability and evaluate what you have in place to secure your technology?

Join Community IT Innovators experts Eva Townsend and Nura Aboki for this webinar on Identifying IT Risks. Eva and Nura perform routine Technology Assessments on existing and new clients several times a month and will share our best practices for reviewing IT risks and putting safeguards in place.

This webinar is aimed at IT and Nonprofit Managers who oversee IT and will be in practical English not technical language.

You don’t need to be caught unawares by the newest scam or hack. Join us from 4-5pm October 20th for good insights into putting an ounce of prevention to work for you.

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.

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.
