National “Gives Back” Mobile Grant Contest Launches

I”m excited to announce a first for Atlantic Business Technologies – perhaps a first for the web services industry!  We’ve embarked on a grant contest focused exclusively on leveraging mobile technology and mobile marketing to better society.    Submissions are already flowing in!

Today’s nonprofits, just like businesses,  must embrace and utilize mobile technology effectively to improve their bottom line.  Yet, unlike for-profits, whose primary goal is to turn a profit, nonprofits are about saving and enhancing lives – pretty much making the world a more awesome place.  Kind of important!

Mobile technology is most used for fundraising, right?

Fundraising is a huge part of how the mobile channel can help.  But engagement with new, would-be supporters is critical to sustained support.  What would you rather have,  a 1 time $10 gift in a pinch or  a life-long activist, turned volunteer, turned high net worth donor over the next several months?
That’s what I thought!

This $25,000 grant can be used for mobile strategy, mobile marketing, mobile technology services or a combination of all of them.  How will depend on who best tells their story on how mobile will better their mission.    Creations might include  mobile fundraising, mobile advocacy, branding,  mobile education, mobile health, volunteer management, the list is endless!

Our early entries include the following types of organizations:

  •  Environmental
  • International Relief
  • Animal Rights
We’d love to see more from these kind of folks:
  • The Arts
  • Health & Human Services Organizations
  • Advocacy Groups
  • Children’s Services
  • Disease-specific Organizations
  • Healthcare
  • Education

We encourage any and all nonprofits to apply – it’s very easy .  Stay tuned for next week when we unveil our first “Gives Back” Contest Spotlight Entry  and announce a date for our #ABTGivesBack Twitter Hangout!

We’ll also unveil our esteemed panel of judges who span all across the nation, and beyond!

Not quite ready to submit your killer mobile idea?  You’ve got some time to think on it.
Join us on Facebook for fun & informative discussion to get those creative juices flowing.   Please be kind and share.  The more involvement we have the more learning will be had by all involved.   What are you waiting for?

Questions & Answers

Are there differences in application architecture that are important for the cloud?
It is important to build applications and workloads specifically for the cloud. You will want to carefully consider what services the cloud provider of your choice has to offer and how your application leverages those services.

Yes, there will always be some risks associated with any hosting option. You are relying on the resiliency and engineering of infrastructure that has scaled at an astounding rate.

What’s the benefit of hosting in the cloud vs. traditional options?
Reasons not to host in the cloud are few and far between. If you don't host in the cloud, you will spend more in both CapEx and OpEx to manage your applications or websites in a traditional environment.

How can I improve the performance of my application?
There are several primary reasons that applications perform poorly, and in some cases it’s a combination of several. 1) Data latency: If your application is making calls to a data source (whether it’s an API or a direct call) and there is latency at the data provider, your application performance will suffer.

Should I move my application to the cloud?
The answer is ‘probably yes’. There aren’t many reasons for an application to be hosted elsewhere, aside from occasional compliance standards, or requirements to integrate with local services that would require large amounts of data to move from on-premise to cloud.

Where should my application be hosted?
There are many different options for hosting, but most applications would do well with one of the cloud providers -- Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure.
