Microsoft Philanthropies provides nonprofits with a $3,500 credit annually toward Azure services. Here's an example of how one organization made use of the powerful tools.
When Argentina-based CONIN set out to eradicate childhood malnutrition and serve disadvantaged families at risk of falling through the gaps in social services, it turned to Microsoft Azure to achieve those goals. The integrated suite of cloud services—including analytics, computing, web and mobile apps, networking, storage, and more—empowered the nonprofit to achieve more impact.
CONIN identified the most pressing needs—from lack of clean water to insufficient healthy food—in different pockets of the city of Salta. Staff input data into an application developed and hosted in Azure, which they then displayed and shared in Microsoft's Power BI. This allowed the organization to have a quick and easy snapshot of the data that updates seamlessly. The result: an accurate and up-to-date visualization of on-the-ground realities.
CONIN could then partner with the regional government to pinpoint priorities and direct limited resources at the most urgent issues first. A detailed map provided the data to develop a long-term solution: CONIN and the Salta government drafted public policy to prevent malnutrition in the future and ensure the area’s children have a healthy start to life.
