Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Provides New Level of Business Intelligence
For more than 25 years, Charleston, South Carolina-based Blackbaud has provided nonprofit organizations worldwide with the technology solutions they need to stay competitive in the ever-growing marketplace. From fundraising and financial management software to direct marketing communications and online community-building solutions, Blackbaud has identified the unique needs of organizations working within the nonprofit sector and developed exclusive tools that are designed to help them achieve their specific goals.
Blackbaud currently serves more than 16,000 organizations, giving them practical yet innovative solutions that help them raise money, manage finances, improve operational effectiveness, make better decisions and leverage the power of the Internet. The company, which also has operations in Massachusetts, Ontario, Scotland, England and Australia, deals with more than 1,000 nonprofits every single day and counts on its 1,300 employees to manage that substantial interaction effectively.
With business and historical pipeline data stored in various systems across the company, Blackbaud needed a way to consolidate and integrate the information and make it accessible to all employees.
“The Microsoft SQL Server 2005 platform allowed Blackbaud to stand up a fully
featured, world-class Business Intelligence solution with a fraction of the effort
and cost of other solutions.”
