Are you wondering what the cloud has to offer your organization, and why you should care? Or maybe you’re thinking about how to more seamlessly integrate your cloud with your existing on-premise infrastructure? Or how to take advantage of software donations you may already have from Microsoft while still exploring cloud computing?

Join us to learn more about Microsoft’s vision for Software plus Services, a view that recognizes we can’t always have our mission-critical applications and data dependent on Internet access. See what’s available today and what’s around the corner. From the Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) to Azure to Office 2010, Microsoft’s offerings have the potential to enable nonprofit organizations to spend less time and money running their IT infrastructure so they can spend more time delivering on their missions.

We’ll share examples from organizations already using Microsoft’s cloud services and tell you about donations and discount programs for nonprofits. Product demonstrations and overviews will include Microsoft’s Online Services (Exchange Online, Exchange Hosted Services, SharePoint Online, Office Live Meeting, Dynamics CRM Online, Office Communications Online).

  • 26. Some examples
  • 27. CASA Philadelphia(Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children)
    Before
    After
    Using free webmail system; Very poor (“awful”) external-facing and internal customer experience
    No integrated calendar or calendar sharing
    Very few collaboration tools in use, concerns around protection of sensitive personal/legal information
    Microsoft Exchange + Outlook (and Outlook Web Access!) allows for “enterprise-class” e-mail experience
    Exchange now allows them to share calendars, scheduling, conference facilities, etc.
    Sharing documents within organization; ability to collaborate, store, access, and print directly from SharePoint
    Elevated professionalism of org internally and to external constituents.
  • 28. Jack Miller Center
    Before
    After
    Were using a hosted Exchange solution from another vendor prior to BPOS implementation. Very expensive and servers were down often
    No comprehensive collaboration solution; security concerns around providing unauthorized users access to file shares, etc.
    Hodge-podge of web conferencing and sharing tools
    Exchange Online (part of BPOS suite) brought costs down and improved reliabilty greatly (99.9% uptime)
    Now using SharePoint extensively to support remote users and other constituents who should not have access to internal file servers
    LiveMeeting Online: using for project status meetings with remote staff and consultants. “Love it!”
  • 29. NetHope
    Before
    After
    Inconsistent internal e-mail (employee preferences)
    Local SharePoint deployment for cross-agency resource / information sharing*
    Inconsistent remote access to (mission-) critical e-mail infrastructure
    Exchange Online now powering @nethope.org e-mail addresses
    SharePoint Online will ensure more robust cross-agency collaboration platform*
    Outlook Web Access reliable and available during critical time (post-Haiti earthquake)
