Opportunity and Obstacles: Integrating Best-in-Class Nonprofit Technology
Over the last 30 years, the evolving technology landscape has transformed consumer behavior – and the way businesses and organizations engage with individuals. As nonprofits responded to the shifting expectations of their supporters, technology solutions tailored to the industry’s needs have proliferated.
In order to successfully fuel their missions, many nonprofits take a best-in-class approach to technology. Rather than using one or two solutions to support all activities, these organizations incorporate the top solutions for each of their needs, resulting in both opportunity and obstacles.

Therefore, this is a critical discussion for any nonprofit leader.
