You can build a computer center with fewer computers. Compared to typical arrangements, Windows MultiPoint Server (WMS) costs surprisingly less to adopt and maintain, saves electricity, and gives administrators group controls. For NGOs with many different missions, it’s helping people access technology . . . for much less.
The latest version of Microsoft Office is here! Eligible NGOs and charities can now request Office Standard and Professional editions through the Microsoft Software Donation Program at SANGOTeCH Programme.
Microsoft Office offers a number of new features and benefits over Office 2010, including direct integration with SkyDrive, new graphics options, the ability to open and edit PDFs in Word, and to sync across several devices. This means you can start working on a document on your desktop and then continue where you left off on another computer, laptop, or tablet because Office saves your work in the cloud as you go.
If you have received a donation of Microsoft Office through SANGOTeCH Programme that included Software Assurance (and it is still current), you can upgrade to the latest version of Office at no additional cost.
Windows 8 is unlike any operating system Microsoft has ever released — and that's a good thing. The bigger, bolder user interface is built for touchscreen tablets and PCs, as well as traditional desktop and laptop computers. The new Start screen resembles what you'd find on a smartphone or tablet with clean font, bright colors, and dynamic images. But Windows 8 also retains many of the features from Windows 7, so your staff should have no trouble getting used to the new interface. Looks aside, Windows 8 also offers some new features that may help your staff's productivity as well as the performance and longevity of your organisation's computers.
If your organisation decides that it's ready to switch to Windows 8 and has verified that it meets the technical requirements to do so, it is time to make an upgrade plan. This article will walk you through steps to take before and during an install.
This article is geared toward the accidental techie who is comfortable installing software and who has only a handful of computers (fewer than 10) to upgrade. Those looking for tips on virtualized environments, unattended installs, or network-wide mass deployment can find support on Microsoft TechNet Windows 8 Technical Library Roadmap.
Technology and the NGO Sector
In March of 2012, SANGOTeCH, in partnership with TechSoup Global, conducted a survey of NGO's around the world to better understand the current state of their IT infrastructure and how they’re adopting cloud technologies. The survey garnered more than 10,500 respondents in 88 countries. We’re pleased to add this data to our ever-evolving resources for NGO's, charities, foundations, and those who support them.
The Results Are In!
