Computing has ostensibly changed the way we access, store, and utilize information. It has changed the way we work, socialize, and even date.
None of this would have been possible if it were not for the power of data storage. From the first 2.6MB hard drive being developed by IBM in 1963, to 2-4 terabyte cloud storage being available today, if we were unable to save and access our information, all our computing power would be all for naught.
But, have you ever wondered how we will be storing our data in the future? We have come such a long way since the first hard drives and punch cards, what will our data storage look like in another 80 years?

The end of the year is the obvious time to take a step back and ask the tough question of your nonprofit’s data. But this can be done quarterly, or even monthly if you have the time and manpower to do that.
Achieving actionable nonprofit data management is essential as the use of data becomes more prevalent in contemporary business practices every day. Here are 3 questions your nonprofit can ask to help decide if it’s getting the most out of its data at the end of 2014.
