Helping Oxfam reach its goal of ending poverty, faster
Oxfam is a global movement of millions of people who share the belief that, in a world rich in resources, poverty isn't inevitable. In just 15 years, extreme poverty has been halved. 15 more years and together, we can end it for good.
Oxfam aspires to become a 21st century not-for-profit, but also strives to invest all available funding into its charitable programmes. This delicate balance was challenged as it became clear that in order to achieve its inspiring mission, Oxfam needed to be able to scale to meet demand, innovate and have the agility to support organisational change. Oxfam needed to move to the cloud.
Hear from Nick Mitrovic, CTO, who will share Oxfam’s cloud migration story – their decision to move to Microsoft Azure, the cultural impact of the transformation, how value was accelerated through partnering with Rackspace and the lessons learned as it delivered a 20% reduction in technology cost savings and significantly increased the revenue generated through its online environments.
Most importantly, Oxfam can now respond more quickly and effectively in times of emergency and crisis, helping the organisation move closer to its goal of ending poverty, forever.
