Investing in Alternative Solutions for Delivering Technology

I am sorry if this sounds like a plug, but we have come to a similar conclusion related to IT and the NGO sector. I think the reality is despite technological evolution spurring easier and less costly systems, NGO's may be in the same situation twenty years form now as they are presently, e.g. not being able to afford or support technology infrastructure and services internally. OSI is also supportive of the NPOWER initiative and are working in partnership with the Horowitz foundation on the other side of the equation: Software development of mission critical applications for the NGO sector in the form of ASP's -- basically software which is supported outside the individual NGO (necessitating less technical infrastructure -- costly software, hardware and technical talent) but is available for all to use.
