Where Does Your Tech Stack Stand in 2023?

Updated: Dec 27, 2022

Introduction

There's never been a better time to modernize your software stack than right now. You'd be surprised by how many organizations are still relying on legacy applications and infrastructure. Modernizing your software stack can help you improve customer experience, increase employee productivity and decrease risk.


By modernizing your software stack, you'll be able to rapidly deploy new functionality, quickly incorporate feedback from customers and more easily adapt to changing business needs. With the advent of agile development, DevOps and microservices, software is less a static set of programs and more a set of dynamic components that can evolve over time

There's never been a better time to modernize your software stack than right now.

The software stack is the set of technology components used to build and run software applications. It's constantly evolving, and it's the foundation of your business. The software stack is a key differentiator between organizations, and it's the key to innovation.


If you're looking to modernize your software stack in 2023 or beyond, there has never been a better time than right now.


You'd be surprised by how many organizations are still relying on legacy applications and infrastructure.

While the costs of not modernizing your software stack can be staggering, the process of doing so is often a lengthy one. According to Forrester Research, it takes an average of five years for organizations to complete their modernization efforts—and that's only if they're willing to invest the resources necessary for this kind of undertaking.


Modernizing your software stack can help you improve customer experience, increase employee productivity and decrease risk.

Modernizing your software stack can help you improve customer experience, increase employee productivity and decrease risk. For example:

  • Modernizing your software stack can help you improve customer experience. When customers interact with a business through a modernized platform, they have less downtime and more seamless experiences. They can also expect faster responses from employees because of the tools available to them in the system.

  • Modernizing your software stack can help you increase employee productivity by giving them access to real-time data that has been cleansed before being displayed on dashboards or mobile devices so they don't have to spend time trying to figure out what's happening in their business—they can just see it right away!

  • Modernizing your software allows organizations like yours avoid being penalized with fines by regulators like FINRA because they're able to detect fraud earlier than other companies (and even before it happens).

By modernizing your software stack, you'll be able to rapidly deploy new functionality, quickly incorporate feedback from customers and more easily adapt to changing business needs.

When you modernize your software stack, you'll be able to rapidly deploy new functionality, quickly incorporate feedback from customers and more easily adapt to changing business needs.

In this article, we'll discuss the process of modernizing your software stack. We'll cover what it means to modernize a stack, what benefits it can provide and how to get started with this process.


With the advent of agile development, DevOps and microservices, software is less a static set of programs and more a set of dynamic components that can evolve over time.

In the world of software development, the software stack is no longer a static set of programs. Instead, it's a set of dynamic components that can evolve over time. Agile development and DevOps allow developers to quickly deploy new features and fix bugs when they're discovered in production. Microservices allow developers to break down large projects into smaller chunks so each team can work on their own part independently, but still keep everything running smoothly as a whole.


This evolution allows for faster development and deployment—but only if you're ready for it!


Improve customer experience, increase employee productivity and decrease risk by modernizing your software stack.

Modernizing your software stack can help you improve customer experience, increase employee productivity and decrease risk by:

  • Reliability. For example, ensuring that systems are resilient and recover quickly from failures. This includes both infrastructure (e.g., database replication) and applications (e.g., message queueing).

  • Availability of all critical functions during an incident (even if some parts of the system are unavailable). For example, if you need to perform database recovery after a failure then this should be done within SLAs so that services don’t go down while the database is being recovered.

  • Security at all levels of the stack such as network access controls, application security or user identity management; ensuring that data is only accessed by those who have permission; preventing unauthorized access to sensitive information through encryption etc.; having sufficient backups in case something goes wrong with one piece of hardware or software component so that downtime doesn't occur as a result.


Conclusion

While it's true that modernizing your software stack is no small feat, the benefits are clear. By taking a strategic approach to your current technology and planning for future growth, you'll be able to improve customer experience, increase employee productivity and decrease risk.
