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.

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.
