Event description

Description

Many Not for Profit organisations have been at the losing end of IT solutions which have been too costly, constraining value, or acting as a drain on service delivery. Faced with rising costs and diminishing budgets, NFP IT services continue to lag behind best-practices, lacking in adoption of modern cloud based services, workforce mobility and disaster preparedness. NFP's face the tangible risk of losing information due to aged, costly-to-maintain networks and infrastructure, which also raises concerns at board level about Cyber Security.

The NFP sector traditionally forms transactional relationships with IT vendors, missing out on opportunities for innovation, strategic partnership and value-add. Consultancies lure organisations into expensive and complicated IT strategies that deliver little value, as they fail to keep pace with the rapidly evolving technology landscape.

Until recently, this problem has been compounded by the fact that major funders have been unwilling to support transition to cloud based services. But this is changing, and the opportunity now presents itself for NFPs to revist technology and the foundation it can build to improved service delivery and increased cross-sector collaboration.

In this session, run by Chris Nurse - a recognised technology visionary and leader from the not for profit sector - a case study will be presented of how a medical research institute transformed it's technology capabilities to build a "Research Institute of the Future", in less than twelve months.

As an NFP Executive, if you feel your organisation faces disruption due to changing funding models, grant levels falling, or that you're hindered by aged IT, lack of strategic IT vision and direction, or are embarking on significant transformation, this presentation and open forum will provide important and actionable insights.

Places are limited and open to NFP executives and board members only.
