Webinar: February 16th – Information Management Basics – Slides & Recording


January 19, 2017

Topic: Information Management Basics
Date: February 2017

Community IT Innovators was pleased to collaborate with our partners at Build Consulting for this webinar.

In a special, half-hour format Build shares their expertise in information management, beginning with a fifteen minute definition and overview of the basic challenges. Peter Mirius takes questions from the webinar participants and addresses real world situations throughout the webinar.

Has your organization struggled with using data strategically? Do you wish you had better technology to track your data, but suspect you’ll have the same issues even after an upgrade? Are you wondering why everyone is talking about “big data”?

Technology-driven information management plays an ever-increasing role in helping nonprofits understand the world around them—and their impact on it.  But for nonprofit organizations to manage and leverage the vast amount of information you create, you need to understand your basics.  Problems in Governance, Operations, Process, Data, and Technology can derail your drive to make sense of – and utilize – your data.

It’s probably safe to say that no nonprofit manages all five of these aspects at 100% efficiency – this webinar will help you to discover ways to improve your information management mindset.

This webinar is appropriate for nonprofit executives, managers and nonprofit IT personnel – and as with all our webinars, we will discuss technology in a manner that is accessible to a varied audience.
