Anna Jaeger: “Cloud Technology and the NGO Community” for the November 2nd NonProfit Commons Meeting

TechSoup Global recently released the findings from our 2012 Global NGO Cloud Survey. This Friday, November 2nd, Nonprofit Commons is happy to feature Anna Jaeger of TechSoup, who will discuss the primary advantages, barriers and motivations that nonprofits, libraries, and NGOs from around the world reported for moving their IT to the cloud.



Anna Jaeger, the Director of Microsoft Program and Special Projects, was also the co-founder of the GreenTech Initiative  at TechSoup Global. GreenTech’s mission is to help nonprofits and libraries reduce their environmental impact through the effective use of technology, including cloud technologies. Prior to her work on the Global Cloud Survey, Ms. Jaeger lead TechSoup Global’s IT Engineering Department, which implemented and maintained all enterprise software and websites.
