Why should you care about your technology stack? Wait – what IS a technology stack? It’s actually pretty simple. A tech stack is a group of multiple technology applications that today’s businesses use to manage their core functions. Decades ago, it was an actual stack of hardware in the IT department. Now, like most technology, it’s virtual and resides in the cloud.
Here’s why you should care. A well-integrated technology stack helps streamline routine business tasks and also greatly increases the ability to use information to improve planning. The “stack” is powered by the multi-cloud world. This means multiple business applications and services in the cloud effortlessly interact. In the construction and development world, this might include platforms that facilitate project management, property management, estimating, budgeting and valuation, AP processing, and document and approval management, among others.
