Cape Organization for Rights of the Disabled

Technology Planning

“Cape Organization for Rights of the Disabled (CORD) is looking to address its technology infrastructure. CORD’s hardware and software are outdated with a combination of mismatched models and versions. Most of the organization’s equipment is five- to six-years old. Furthermore, CORD has accumulated a large amount of data without a central database. The organization lacks the appropriate system to collect and optimize data.
