CDC Foundation to Present Digital Transformation Journey with Celigo

The free virtual conversation will cover how the organization modernized business processes and support the Crush COVID fundraising efforts.

Celigo (, the leading integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) provider for both business and technical users, announced today that it will host a free virtual presentation featuring the CDC Foundation on March 17 titled “How the CDC Foundation Modernized and Automated Its Business Processes: A Digital Transformation Story”.

In addition to presenting the CDC Foundation’s digital transformation journey, the event will also help raise support for the Foundation’s Crush COVID campaign.

“We are honored to host and support the CDC Foundation with this event,” said Jan Arendtsz, Founder and CEO of Celigo. “The way the CDC Foundation modernized its legacy systems and automated its business processes with integration is a blueprint for any organization looking to undergo a similar initiative in this critical time for digital transformation.”

Malcolm James, Senior Technology and Business Solutions Manager at the CDC Foundation, will discuss how the Foundation successfully approached and executed the automation of its legacy processes, just in time to manage the 5-fold increase in transactions it experienced as part of its COVID-19 pandemic response.

“Operational transformation is such a common and necessary goal these days that involves many critical decisions,” said James. “I’m excited to share the story of our pathway because I understand what it’s like to have that desire for modernization while also feeling the weight of the challenges it presents.”

The CDC Foundation, which has raised over $1.25 billion since its founding in 1995 for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, had outgrown its dependence on primarily manual and paper-based processes. Through a major digital transformation initiative, the organization sought to modernize its operations with best-of-breed cloud solutions such as Salesforce, ADP, SAP Concur, Celigo iPaaS, and much more.

Topics of this candid conversation will include:

  • The challenges faced by growing organizations like the CDC Foundation
  • Navigating their digital transformation initiative and selecting the right cloud-based tools
  • The pivotal role of integration and automation
  • Results, insights, and best practices based on the successful experience
