Charity slashes costs with open source

,----[ Quote ]
| It used software from open source integration firm MuleSource to bring its
| systems up-to-date, while also bringing down the transaction fees for each
| donation by 5%.
|
| Like most non-profits when it comes to technology, it tends to prefer to
| invest incrementally and only when it provides compelling ROI. It says it’s
| been able to increase online donations by a staggering $10m in two months.

“Analysts sell out - that’s their business model… But they are very concerned
that they never look like they are selling out, so that makes them very
prickly to work with.”
