Carolina Computer Partners will help determine the most effective data storage solution and provide training to support Habitat for Humanity of the Charlotte Region in sustainably maintaining growth.
Habitat for Humanity is on a mission to bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope. They envision a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat for Humanity of the Charlotte Region (Habitat) was founded in 1983 by seven local churches and has remained a top Habitat for Humanity affiliate since its establishment. Through faith, innovation, and passion, and thanks to the support of countless community partners, volunteers, donors and advocates, Habitat Charlotte Region has made a significant impact in Charlotte and the surrounding area since its founding.
Habitat would like Apparo’s support in implementing a solution for efficiently storing and naming files in order to sustainably continue to grow their organization. Habitat has recently experienced a merge with another organization, relocation to a new office space, staff turnover, and other situations through COVID that have increased the difficultly of storing files to one central location. Habitat’s staff currently saves files to many different locations, including hard drives, Microsoft Teams, and SharePoint. The organization also currently lacks a naming convention, further increasing the difficulty of accessing files. They hope that by streamlining the data storage process, staff will be able to seamlessly collaborate on files that are secure, organized, and held in one central location.
Apparo has matched Habitat with a skilled volunteer team from Carolina Computer Partners (CCP Tech) who will first provide an overview on storing files in Teams and SharePoint and how these platforms interact with each other. The volunteer team will then support Habitat in selecting which of these solutions makes the most sense for the organization to focus on moving forward. Following the selection of Teams or SharePoint as the primary location for storing files, Habitat would like assistance in establishing naming conventions and creating a plan to migrate and organize over 10 years of data to the selected program. Finally, to help ensure a successful implementation of this strategy, skilled volunteers will train Habitat staff on efficiently using their storage site, including how to create folders, set permissions, and navigate between Teams and SharePoint.
