Managing data of party members and everything else related to political party. I've chosen CiviCRM because it is Open Source, it has many features and modules, it can be customized, it can be installed on any kind of servers or OSs, and it's powered by 3 major CMS systems. Yep, translation and localization were a major factor.
As a consulting organization working primarily with non-profit organizations the CiviCRM community helps us solve issues for the organizations we work with. The CiviCRM community is a great resource to share ideas and solutions to help the organizations we work with focus on accomplishing their mission.
We help many not for profits implement CiviCRM through consultancy, training, configuration, support and custom development. Many of them come from a painful world of old Access databases, multiple spreadsheets and even paper. I love presenting demonstrations to new potential users; many are shocked by the scale of the software. CiviCRM is suitable for so many different organisations as it's been developed to cover so many bases off the back of community calls.
I maintain our own CiviCRM client database; it feeds into our drupal intranet to provide me with all the information I need at a click. I would be lost without it!
We are just migrating and implementing a CiviCrm-solution for our charity! EE@Work and Circle Interactive are helping us! We are dreaming big with CiviCRM and we love when technology enables us to be effective and growing!
As CiviCRM trainers and implementers, the CiviCRM community provides Emphanos with opportunity to help NGOs get rid of the headaches involved with managing their constituents so that they are better able to spread their message.
1. manage and communicate with different groups of industrial clients within our school
2. manage the donor in the scholarship and grants
3. manage the volunteer students in different projects with our industrial clients
Being part of the CiviCRM community is really something to shout about! Not only is CiviCRM an amazing software package, its designed for organisations that make a difference in the world. We help non-profits across the UK gain control of their data through the power of CiviCRM.
It is without a doubt the best piece of software I've ever worked with, and I'm constantly discovering cool new features. More recently I've been working on CiviMobile as part of a project for my course at University. I'm really looking forward to seeing this being used by organisations across the globe.
When implementing CiviCRM in our organisation, we got for the first time a complete overview of all our contacts, mailing lists, partners, members in one tool. You do not need to be a database genius to use it on a daily basis, and my colleagues have embraced the tool due to the easy and user-friendly interface. It meets all our needs as a contact management system and as a mail manager. I am sure that we will start using more of its components in the future.
https://civicrm.stackexchange.com/ is launched in beta and thriving as a place to ask and answer questions about CiviCRM. The benefit of the Q&A format is that good questions and good answers can get voted up, and better serve as an expert repository of our community's experience. Search rankings will soon be able to find good relevant answers to everyone's beginner and expert support and development questions.
Reset the Net is a campaign to improve individual and organizational privacy against mass government surveillance. I think we as CiviCRM community members should step up and act. In particular, hosting providers, implementors, and organizations using CiviCRM should up their game to implement SSL, HSTS, and PFS.

Extensions are a growing part of the CiviCRM way of doing things. We need to develop a process and toolset to facilitate getting them translated and making those translations easily installable. This post is intended to lay out some issues and a potential approach in order to generate discussion.

Notice to non-developers: This post is about how some functionality in 4.2 will be implemented in code and in the database, with very minor changes to anything visible through a browser. If you're not a developer, it probably won't interest you.
