HOW TO SELECT YOUR TECHNOLOGY STACK?
What is a technology stack?
The technology stack, also called “data ecosystem” or “technology stack”, represents the development ecosystem of a software or computer program. It includes a set of elements such as tools, databases and services used by developers to develop and deploy applications.
While this may sound simple, a “tech stack” as it is more commonly called by developers, is an essential component of any company that wants to be innovative. The wise use of a tech stack allows an organization to fill in some of the gaps in its technological environment.
How to choose the right platforms for your needs?
First of all, it is essential to perform a thorough analysis of your technological gaps and strengths before making any decision. When we talk about background analysis, this includes your internal administrative needs as well as those stemming from the business imperatives of your customers. Indeed, not all platforms offer the same technological values depending on their offer or service.
