10 Must Read IT Blogs

Technological advances are drastically changing the way companies in almost every industry operate. Take this recent article from BizTech Magazine on nonprofits migrating their IT processes to the cloud. Though not the first sector to come to mind when considering organizations at the forefront of tech adoption, nonprofits are making clever use of cloud technologies and new software. Digital tools and being an early adopter are now so engrained in all aspects of work that all sectors are taking advantage.
