Webinar Description 

As more applications move to "the cloud," where they can be hosted online and accessed from anywhere, many nonprofits and libraries are wondering whether they should be moving their files, email, or other tech needs to hosted online parties as well.

In this webinar, Sam Chenkin from npCloud shares his tips, best practices, and advice on how to assess whether to move and what to move to the cloud at your organization. He is joined by Stephanie Borton, Associate Director of Art-Reach, which has gone through the cloud assessment process with npCloud, and successfully moved their organization's systems to Microsoft's Office 365.

This webinar will cover a brief overview of how to assess whether your nonprofit or library is ready for a move to the cloud, the assessment service provided by the npCloud donation program, and one organization's experience of moving to Office 365.

This webinar is geared toward technology decision makers at nonprofits and public libraries in the United States.
