Event Description

Streamlining Technology in Your Nonprofit

James Ellis, Managing Director, EV Strategic Partners

In this session, we will explore developing a technology strategy that truly works for your organization by streamlining your tech stack. A tech stack is the ecosystem of software and hardware used to support your programs. By identifying opportunities for improvement and assessing your current technology use, we can enhance collaboration, communication, and efficiency.

Together we will discuss the benefits of streamlining, such as cost savings and easier operations; we'll also walk through identifying essential tools and strategies for integrating and upgrading outdated systems. Lastly, we will cover evaluating vendors, implementing new tools, and the importance of continuous assessment and training to stay ahead of emerging tech trends. By adopting an iterative approach to tech stack management, your nonprofit can achieve long-term success in its mission.
