1 ADVANCE YOUR MISSION WITH THE CLOUD DO MORE WITH LESS CLOUD SOLUTIONS CDW NONPROFIT

2 2 CLOUD SOLUTION Cloud/hosted software spending by nonprofits and associations increased by 43% while technology hardware purchases dropped by 16%. 1

3 COST-EFFECTIVE. RIGHT-SIZED. MISSION-FOCUSED. Connect with the right cloud solutions. You have plenty on your plate between increased pressure to accomplish more with limited financial and human resources, concerns about skyrocketing data breach threats, and the need to cost-effectively attract and engage supporters and members. Like many nonprofit organizations, these challenges may be driving you to migrate your systems and apps to the cloud. But with a plethora of options to choose from, how do you know which cloud solutions are the right fit for your needs? CDW Nonprofit can help you sort through the clutter and select wisely. 45% of nonprofit organizations and associations surveyed said they plan to move to the cloud in 1 to 3 years, but 34% say lack of experienced internal IT was the main reason for slow or no cloud adoption. 1 1 techimpact.org, Nonprofit and Association Technology Trends, 2015 CDW.com/nonprofit 3

4 ADVANTAGES Put the cloud to work for you. No matter how big your challenges or how small your budget, CDW Nonprofit account managers and solution architects can help you identify and implement a cloud solution that works for your organization so you can stay focused on your mission. Working with 40+ carefully selected cloud partners, we help you take full advantage of benefits such as: LOWER, MORE PREDICTABLE COSTS. Eliminate the need to invest substantial capital in in-house infrastructure, reduce operational and support costs, and streamline budgeting. INCREASED AGILITY. Easily adjust IT capabilities so you pay only for what you need. Integrate the latest technology without revamping your infrastructure. IMPROVED OUTREACH, PRODUCTIVITY AND COMMUNICATION. Convenient, on-demand access to apps and data enables staff, donors, members and visitors to strengthen engagement, fundraising and advocacy. 2 nten.org, The State of the Non-Profit Cloud: A NTEN Report and TechSoup Global s Global Cloud Survey, March 2012 SIMPLIFIED MANAGEMENT. Internal IT staff have more time to strategically leverage technology to help advance your mission. BETTER SECURITY. Automatically update apps to safeguard your sensitive data. CDW s portfolio of cloud providers meets stringent compliance and legal requirements, ensuring all your data is well protected. 79% of nonprofit organizations note that the biggest advantage in adopting cloud technologies is administration-related, followed by reduced costs and improved opportunities for collaboration. 2 4 CLOUD SOLUTION

5 BUDGET AND RESOURCE MANAGEMENT EFFICIENCY AND AGILITY ADVANCING YOUR MISSION NONPROFIT 9,000+ CLIENTS OVER 30 YEARS 63% of nonprofit CFOs say that a cloud implementation would reduce operational costs by as much as 20%, and 82% report savings with the cloud. 1 MEMBER/DONOR ENGAGEMENT THE CDW APPROACH MARKET RELEVANCY AND IMPACT CDW is focused on helping more than 9,000 nonprofit organizations advance their mission with specialized industry expertise, shared best practices from nonprofit customers and access to a broad range of cost-saving IT solutions. Our dedicated nonprofit account teams help organizations leverage cloud solutions to better manage budgets and resources, expand member/donor engagement, strengthen market relevancy and impact, and increase efficiency and agility. CDW.com/nonprofit 5

6 YOUR ORGANIZATION THE CLOUD CDW Nonprofit works with you to assess your needs and determine which cloud solutions from public to private to hybrid best fit your requirements and can most effectively help you achieve your goals. INFRASTRUCTURE Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions allow you to move your infrastructure to the cloud. IaaS provides a pool of virtual machines hosted offsite, so you can match servers, storage and networking to your particular needs. APPLICATIONS Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions host and deliver a variety of applications from the cloud. Productivity. On-demand access to spreadsheets, word processing, presentations and enables all users to get information whenever and wherever they need it. This is especially valuable for organizations with flexible work hours or widely dispersed staff locations. Collaboration. Your staff can securely collaborate at any location from any device, inspiring creativity and promoting idea sharing. Telephony and conferencing. Take advantage of next-level integration of web and video conferencing, telephone, instant messaging and to encourage better, more frequent communication with internal and external stakeholders. Security. CDW s hosted security and web filtering services ensure your protection is always up to date. Backup. Cloud storage and backup simplify management and safeguard data. A CLOSER LOOK AT THE OPTIONS Public cloud. With this solution, you share resources with several different organizations, or even the public. Private cloud. With this option, resources dedicated to your organization are run in your own data center or that of a service provider. This ensures an extra layer of privacy and security. Hybrid cloud. This option keeps your public and private clouds as separate entities bundled together, providing scalability and control. 6 CLOUD SOLUTION

7 SECURITY THE CLOUD As the volume and velocity of cyberattacks continue to increase, security is understandably top of mind for nonprofit organizations entrusting donor data and other sensitive information to the cloud. Nonprofits that operate in certain fields also may need to conform to strict regulations. However, as long as smart security strategies are deployed, the cloud environment can actually better protect data against potential threats and vulnerabilities. CDW can work with you to ensure your cloud service provider is compliant and certified, and help you incorporate the right cloud security policies and tools into a multilayered defense that includes: Data loss prevention risk assessment Authentication Encryption Next-generation firewalls 56% of nonprofit organizations trust cloud providers to secure their data. 94% saw security improvements, including up-todate patching, better anti-spam filters and up-todate anti-virus protection. 1 Find out more about how CDW Nonprofit can help you achieve your IT and cloud objectives.

9 EXPERT Q&A Q. What are the biggest benefits the cloud can offer nonprofit organizations? The cloud enables nonprofit organizations to do more with less. They can reach more people more effectively and efficiently, particularly globally. They can be more strategic in their mission and their message, which can bring in more contributions. The cloud also supports better internal collaboration, helps maximize IT spending and frees IT staff from everyday infrastructure maintenance so they can focus more on strategic initiatives that help advance their organization s mission. Q. What are the biggest challenges involved in selecting and implementing cloud solutions? Joe Farace CLOUD CLIENT EXECUTIVE, CDW The lack of an overall cloud strategy is the number one issue. Nonprofit organizations often decide to move one part of their data center, such as backup or disaster recovery, to the cloud without taking into account their entire data center footprint and thinking strategically about it. Another challenge is recognizing that the cloud can bring value, but not knowing where to start in terms of exploring solutions and vendors. Q. What tips can you offer nonprofit organizations considering cloud solutions? First of all, slow down and take your time. Be strategic, methodical and inquisitive. Don t be afraid to ask questions, vet potential partners and consider multiple solutions. It s also important to have a partner who understands your organizational challenges and how to apply cloud solutions to solve them as part of a comprehensive IT strategy. The right partner can help you understand and compare the cost of cloud solutions with on-premise solutions so you can make informed decisions. CDW.com/nonprofit 9
