As a nonprofit, your objective is not making money; your mission is to help the greater good. The focus on giving rather than profiting presents an even bigger challenge to cost-effectively run an organization. Electronic records, financial transactions, donor information and day-to-day business all require a robust I.T. infrastructure. Many nonprofits are approaching complete dependence on technology, which has become ever more advanced and complex. But when the network or systems are unavailable, effectively delivering on the mission and performing other necessary tasks is impossible.
Nonprofits are increasing their collaboration with managed I.T. services providers (MSPs) to ensure that network uptime and expert oversight of complex I.T. systems are provided in a secure manner.
