This compelling blog series from guest writer, Nick Banks, Business Development Manager, Tech For Social Impact at Microsoft considers the misunderstandings that could prevent your charity or not for profit organisation from adopting the cloud and enjoying the advantages it has to offer. This is the fifth article in the series that addresses the common misconception that continuous updates will negatively impact the existing applications within your charity.
Charity technology myth 5: Continuous updates will break our critical business applications and add to our IT burden
False. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. With Microsoft 365, you will remain in complete control over your own technology – and your IT team will not have to worry about constant updates. In fact, moving to the cloud significantly reduces the time spent maintaining hardware and upgrading software.
When it comes to other software applications that you may use within your charity, Microsoft ensures compatibility by working closely with leading software vendors and providing them with tools and early access to ensure that their Office-compatible solutions continue to work with Microsoft 365. Microsoft also provides charities with guidance and best practices for update management and development to help you avoid any compatibility issues.
