One thought on “Why is ParishSOFT moving to Azure?

  1. It was our understanding that Azure was going to improve the speed of the ConnectNow program itself. Speed of the program is the largest complaint we received from a survey we conducted regarding CN. In our last diocesan seminar for our parishes we told them that we were told the speed of the program will be improved with Azure. This publicication mentions overall software speed because “ParishSOFT will be on significantly higher performing infrastructure.” The 3 benefits that are emphasized seem to be for the company benefit. It is our highest hopes that the program itself will see an increase in speed and reliabilty.
