Through events like Red Nose Day, the U.K.-based charitable organization Comic Relief has raised over a billion pounds since its founding in 1988. But a lot has changed since then, including the technology backbone supporting Comic Relief's donations platform. In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Jeff and Dormain chat with Zenon Hannick, the organization's CTO, about Comic Relief's recent migration to Pivotal Cloud Foundry, how it provides Comic Relief developers an environment for quickly experimenting with new ideas for engaging with donors, and the larger impact of technology on the world of philanthropy.
