Managing Technology at Non-Profits: Cost-Effective Best Practices

October 13, 2016 3:00 pm ET

Non-profits face unique challenges when it comes to technology: on the one hand, audience expectation is that everything should work seamlessly; on the other, many organizations have limited staff, resources and expertise to try to meet these expectations. But never fear! Many technology vendors, from large to small, established and emerging, offer considerable benefits exclusively to non-profits. The challenge is knowing where to look, and evaluating which of these offerings can best suit your organization.  In this webinar, we will review the landscape of technology solutions for non-profits, discuss some of the tools available to achieve a cost-effective and capable technology operation, and provide practical advice about deciding when to build, when to buy, and how to share and collaborate across the sector.

Led by Shyam Oberoi, Director of Technology & Digital Media, Dallas Museum of Art
