How to Buy a Small Nonprofit IT System

Confessions of a Non-Profit Executive Director

I think many nonprofits can get away with a kind of virtual IT system where the files reside primarily on Amazon’s S3 and any more specific applications can be set up remotely (maybe even on Amazon EC2 which now supports Windows servers ). Use Google Apps for your e-mail and file storage solution. Unfortunately, Google Docs are just not ready for primetime. That’s 10 licenses for $0. File Storage and Backup. You have 24 hour Web access to your files.

ScreenSteps: Simple documentation

Judi Sohn

After playing with all the options, I ultimately decided to export the files to HTML, upload online via FTP and serve in a Salesforce custom web tab aptly named "How Do I?" They have a hosted version , but at a minimum of $20/month it's more than I want to spend now compared to a one-time software license purchase. Part of my job is helping my colleagues do what they need to do on their computers and online. They ask, "Judi, how do I.?" and I tell them.

ROI for a donor database

Robert Weiner

The current software does not interface with our current/new technical environment (MS-Exchange and Office, or Google g-mail, calendar, docs, etc.). Or the cost of maintaining current hardware or paying current licensing fees vs. the cost a new system.

Comparing Google Apps to Microsoft Outlook

Idealware

Like Microsoft Exchange, it provides email, calendar and basic contact-management services, while Google Docs—another component of Google Apps—provides file-sharing. It facilitates a library of uploaded documents which can be slow to access and often redundant with a file server. If allowing multiple people to update documents over time is important, Google Docs provides much smoother support. License. PublishDate: July 2011. Author: Laura S. Quinn. Jay Leslie.

10 things I like about Balsamiq

Idealware

If so, then Balsamiq can replace simple or complex html tools, Gliffy (another passion), Visio, Word/Excel/Powerpoint, Google docs, Access forms, pen and notebook (love that too). Collaborative: Even the off-line desktop version has a team orientation, by allowing you to send and receive diagrams from team members as XML files. Nonprofit friendly: The web site offers free licenses to nonprofit and Open Source developers. I am not by nature a tech tools junkie.

I fully expect Salesforce and Google Apps to be closely integrated in the near future, and was reminded of that today when Google released a new API for Google Docs. Files in Docs and Spreadsheets (and soon Presentations) could be tagged with sf.com records, and then be discoverable via sf.com.

Case Study: Moving to Google Apps

NTEN

My job was to keep everything up and running: the network, file servers, computers, printers, email systems, etc. At this point, the servers were aging and needed to be replaced, and we needed new software and user licenses (MS Exchange Server), as well. Most of the staff were used to Gmail and familiar with email, calendar, and docs services.

Free Beer, SharePoint, and an April Fool

It said: “ SharePoint Designer 2007 is available as license-restricted freeware. ”. It not only scans and converts the docs to PDFs, it also automatically tags them with custom metadata before sliding them smartly into a SharePoint document library. You find it under File/New/Workflow.

Use web file sharing or online office systems to share documents. Teach your users how to recognize suspicious emails – “why would the Tibetan Gov’t in Exile send an email from an @yahoo address?&# “Why is this person suddenly sending emails from a new address?&# “did i ask for this file they are sending?&# Often, if it cannot open a file that way, it is often corrupt and/or contains a trojan.&# doc 2008_beijing_olympic_games__b_.doc
