Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) Selects Navisite for Managed Cloud Services
Navisite, LLC, a Time Warner Cable Company and provider of enterprise-class hosting, managed applications, managed messaging and managed cloud services, today announced that the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) has selected Navisite to provide a comprehensive solution across a broad set of IT needs. CHCI, a distinguished Hispanic nonprofit and nonpartisan leadership development organization for Latino youth in the United States, enlisted Navisite to provide hosted messaging and archiving services, cloud storage and Microsoft Dynamics GP application management.
“CHCI has grown immensely since we started in 1978 and today impacts the lives of more than 1,600 students and young professionals annually through fellowships, congressional internships, scholarships, and a variety of college readiness programs,” said Esther Aguilera, president & CEO of CHCI. “We also host nearly 17,000 at our annual events and connect with more than 3,000 engaged CHCI Alumni nationally. With this increase in scale, we’ve outgrown our existing technology and our needs have shifted to require a flexible IT model that can manage the immense amount of data we encounter daily.”
Previously, CHCI relied on internally hosted infrastructure to manage their core communications services including email, program planning, student applications, social media and more. Given their growth in staffing and participants, CHCI experienced ongoing reliability and scalability issues that proved disruptive to their overall business operations.
“As a nonprofit, maintaining our IT hardware has been extremely challenging from a cost perspective,” said Aguilera. “Navisite solutions will not only help us with overhead costs and maintenance, it will also decrease system outages and help boost team productivity and reactiveness in a time when immediacy is key to remaining relevant.”
“Nonprofit organizations like CHCI are increasingly relying on access to enterprise-grade technology to provide enhanced capabilities for their constituents that can help achieve greater efficiency and productivity,” said Sumeet Sabharwal, general manager, Navisite. “Our comprehensive solutions portfolio helps non-profit organizations like CHCI to harness the full potential of cloud-based solutions that can improve their overall business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities. Moreover, our unique applications management capabilities further enable our clients to eliminate complexity and focus on their core business.”
