How to Enhance Your Technology
It is vitally important to keep your website, CRM, and applications updated and upgraded. It can be hard to do this on your own, which is where our expertise and team come in to help.
Web-based software that is not regularly patched and updated is significantly more susceptible to attack from hackers and malware; today’s Content Management Systems (CMS) are at the top of any hacker’s list.
Besides core software systems like Drupal and WordPress, there are also community-contributed plugins and modules that your site uses, all of which are potential vectors for attack. The longer you go without patching, the harder it is to do when you do get to it.
What’s the difference between updating and upgrading?
Whichever CMS you use, there are likely regular security updates that become available from time to time (as often as weekly for Drupal). Applying the patches can be difficult and risky if performed by someone who doesn’t know what they are doing. At Allegiance, we can put you on a regular schedule of updates to ensure that your systems continue to perform as well as possible.
Sometimes, though, you’ve just outgrown your existing solutions and are ready to move to something new. Whether that’s because your current system is unable to support unique business needs that you have, has become challenging to maintain, or is otherwise just no longer a good fit for your organization, it’s time to make a change.
But how do you know all the options out there? How do you narrow that list down to a manageable number?
It’s our job to know what’s out there and help you make the best choice for you based on your needs and the needs of other systems you use that may need to all talk to each other.
Whether looking for a trusted partner for a website redesign or help to keep your existing site updated, your nonprofit or association faces unique challenges, and Allegiance specializes in understanding and overcoming those challenges.
