What Your Tech Stack Needs to Stay Competitive

A tech stack is the combination of technologies companies use to build and run its applications. It is comprised of programming languages, frameworks, a database, front-end and back-end tools, and applications connected via application programming interfaces (APIs). Investing in your tech stack is an important way to keep company productivity and efficiency high. Read on to find out how to keep your tech stack competitive.

Revamp Your Data Collection

Your tech stack plays a big role in how your company operates. It determines what kind of products you can build, how efficiently you can work, and what skillsets your employees need. In order to drive profitability you will need reliable data. Improve your data collection technology by taking a hard look at what’s going on in your customer journey. Google Analytics JavaScript snippets are a great choice to collect valuable website usage data, which will give you a more complete understanding of what your customers are doing and why.                                                                                                                                  

Refine Your Strategy

It may be tempting to think you need new tools to improve your tech stack, but before you even think about that type of investment, make sure there is a purpose behind it. Sit down, take your time and think about where you want to take your business this year. Re-evaluate your goals and make sure they suit your company. Conduct market research and update your understanding of what your customers want from you. Set a budget as well so that when it comes time to explore technology upgrades, you are only considering realistic options. 

Choose the Latest Technology for Your Business

By now, you should have an intimate understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of your current tech stack. You have a better feel for your customer base, too. Now it’s time for you to take a look at what’s on the market and where you can upgrade. StackShare is a great place to explore technology trends for your industry. You can even see what your competition, as well as market leaders like Airbnb, use for their day-to-day operation. For instance, Airbnb’s tech stack supports business functions while meeting more technical needs that keep its platform running smoothly.
