Your Church as a Platform
Platforms exist to turn consumers into contributors. Traditionally, churches have relied on delivering value through a pipeline model, but platforms are changing the world. Think Airbnb and Uber. Let's examine how ministries are challenging the traditional "pipeline" way of thinking and examine infrastructures that promote "platform" thinking.

Gloo: Big Data & Trust in the Church
After interviewing over 2,000 organizations, Gloo's founder identified a simple concept: the Church does not need more technology. It needs interoperability. It needs purpose driven data. It needs the ability to turn consumers into contributors. And thus, Gloo set out to develop a platform that does just that. We will dive into what we are learning as big data and machine learning enters ministries in revolutionary ways and how ministries are making it practical.

3 Strategies for Data Privacy
We worry about Google and Facebook and other corporations having our personal identities…and we use them in spite of knowing that they are making money off of our information.  But our churches have thousands of personal information, and we may be held to a HIGHER standard of protection than those corporations.  How much time do we spend thinking about our responsibility for the personal information that we are responsible for?  That is why we’re talking about these 3 strategies to protect your people and maintain their trust.

Should I Stay or Should I Go Now? - Optimize or Replace your ChMS?
At Enable, we're often invited to help churches choose a new ChMS. But new requires a lot of effort and work that may just trade one set of problems for a new set of problems. How can your church staff assess whether new is really better or whether you're better off focusing on revamping their ministry processes to enable better ministry with their current tools.
