Thoughts on technology and innovation

Fasten Your Seat Belt - Innovation is Accelerating!
Mobility, Business Intelligence and Machine Learning are just a few of the IT Challenges associations face in their race for relevance. Being in IT today requires the ability to quickly respond to market conditions, board requests, member needs and more. You need to be a superhero.
In the modern association, innovation is now measured in weeks or months instead of years
Your Ecosystem is Critical for Innovation
For your association to adapt and innovate requires that you have a platform strategy that allows for the rapid adoption from a diverse range of partners and solution providers. This is your technology ecosystem.
Think ‘Best of Need’
The days of the AMS doing everything from Content Management (CMS) to Learning Management (LMS) are long gone. ASAE CIO Reggie Henry notes that Associations today need to think in terms of ‘Best of Need’ and the AMS needs to support easy integration to those systems.
Your IT stack is a Solar System and the AMS needs to be able to flex to integrate all of the planets.
The AMS Platform Enables The Ecosystem
What is important to know is how the platform your Association Management Software (AMS) uses enables an ecosystem.
Nobody has ever built an ecosystem bigger or better than Salesforce has

Signs Your AMS platform is an Ecosystem Enabler:
An AMS with an App Store is like having Home Depot next door - no matter what tool you need, it’s right there, immediately available, with competition, quantity and variety.
