HP to Leverage Their Technology, Expertise

Hewlett-Packard plans to leverage its technology and employee expertise to enhance its philanthropic activities, according to Venture Beat.

Announced at the Digital Life Design conference today in Munich, the HP program will help nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) such as mothers2mothers, a South African group that helps prevent the transmission of the AIDS virus from HIV-positive pregnant mothers to their children…

HP will use new database, cloud and mobile services technology to convert mothers2mothers’ paper-based patient records into digital form so that information can be shared across more than 700 sites in sub-Saharan Africa.

How much corporate giving is in-kind giving of this nature? Our guess is most corporations find giving up products and services more amenable to the bottom line than straight cash.
