The Charity Technology Conference on Monday 19th November played host to a number of expert speakers whose collaborative aim was to educate charities about how to make the most out of new technology. One speaker was Roger Camrass, IT expert and business leader with 35 years of experience in assisting companies through times of technological developments.
Camrass called for larger charities, such as the NSPCC and Barnardo’s, to follow in the footsteps of the building society Nationwide and create a cloud solution which can be used by the whole charity sector.
He noted of Nationwide’s success that, “In developing economies of scale, particularly in areas in which no market advantage is given away, the sector as a whole can better compete against the banks.” The main theory is that having an “anchor point for cloud services in the sector” will allow efficiencies to be uncovered quickly giving other smaller charities a chance to reap the benefits also.
