TechSoup Talks LogoThe term cloud computing is being used more and more, but what is it and why should you understand it? In this free webinar we will explain what cloud computing means, define the different types, discuss how it is impacting nonprofits and libraries, and outline some criteria for use. The challenges of using the “cloud” will be discussed, as well as whether cloud computing will simplify your life and reduce software and IT staffing costs.

Hear from Anna Jaeger, Co-Director, GreenTech at TechSoup Global, and Peter Campbell, Nonprofit Technologist at Earthjustice, who will help you understand this topic in order to better communicate with your consultants, staff and board. This webinar is applicable for any size organization and ideal for decision makers who need to communicate about cloud computing with tech consultants, and who are interested in making more informed technology decisions.

If you are wondering if this is right for you, here is a blog post that will help you get a sense of what we will be discussing, Why Should Nonprofits Care About Cloud Computing? and a short introductory video Cloud Computing in Plain English, by Common Craft.
