What is Tech Stack Management & How does it Work?


Tech Stack Management Social Media Promotional BTI.

In today's digital landscape, a tech stack plays a pivotal role in powering organizational operations. Defined as a bundle of technologies supporting IT processes, it encompasses various software tools crucial for streamlined operations, performance enhancement, scalability, and cost reduction.

 

Managing a tech stack presents challenges like expertise scarcity and constant updates. However, solutions like BTI’s Remote Monitoring and Management as a Service and GlobalView Support, offer cost-effective options for outsourcing expertise, ensuring round-the-clock monitoring, and comprehensive management. 

 

What is a Tech Stack?  

A tech stack, also known as IT infrastructure or solutions stack is the set of technologies that are bundled together to support your organization's IT applications and processes. Every piece of software, from management systems to HR and IT management software, is part of your technology stack.  


Why is Technology Stack Management Important? 

Your technology stack is more than just a set of digital tools—it's the very foundation that powers your organization's day-to-day operations. Understanding the IT systems and software you employ is not only crucial to define today’s operational capacity, but your tech stack also determines your company's growth and future potential! 


A tech stack simply seems like a bunch of systems and applications. However, when structured correctly, it becomes a dynamic framework that results in: 

  • Streamlined Operations  

  • Increased Performance 

  • Enhanced Scalability 

  • Simpler Workflows  

  • Reduced Operational Costs 

  • And more!  


What are the Various Tools needing Management?  

Network management allows for a comprehensive overview and control over a network infrastructure, enabling a proactive approach to network administration. Integrating such tools allows for:  

  • Identify potential issues before they escalate 

  • Conduct remote configuration changes without the need for physical presence  

  • Ensure software across your network remains up-to-date 

 

Some popular network management tools include: 

  • Monitoring Tools to monitor network performance and uptime. 

  • Traffic Analysis for analyzing network traffic. 

  • Configuration Management for automating network device configurations. 


System Administration Tools 

System Admin Tools are specialized pieces of software crafted to simplify the complex and diverse tasks related to system administration. These indispensable tools have one goal: to streamline the management and operation of computer systems, networks, and servers, to simplify and streamline your IT operations.  


Some System admin tools include:  

  • Operating Systems Management. 

  • Configuration Management for automating the provisioning and management of software. 

  • Patch Management for managing system updates. 


Cybersecurity Software 

The role of cybersecurity solutions and services is to serve as a shield against many cyber threats. These threats can disrupt not just individual software solutions but can ripple through an entire organization's technological infrastructure if not properly configured, monitored, and managed. 


Maintaining your cybersecurity in optimal conditions will allow you to:  

  • Mitigate Threats 

  • Prevent Data Breaches 

  • Ensure Regulatory Compliance 

  • Contribute to Maintaining Business Continuity 

 

Some of the tools needed to maintain a secure and healthy network include:  

  • Firewalls for protecting network boundaries. 

  • Antivirus and Endpoint Protection for protecting end-user devices. 

  • Identity and Access Management (IAM) for managing user access to systems and applications. 


Backup and Disaster Recovery

Backup is the process of creating copies of data so that these additional copies can be used to restore the original after a data loss event. Disaster Recovery (DR) is the set of policies, tools, and procedures to enable the recovery or continuation of your IT infrastructure after a natural or human-induced disaster.

 

Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) is VITAL to ensure your IT infrastructure is safe and reliable. Managing your BRD solutions properly requires a deep level of expertise. BDR solutions can be time-consuming and demanding and can result in burnout, elevated levels of stress for your employees, and excessive costs for business owners due to the level of expertise and training required to manage these solutions properly.   


Monitoring and Performance Management

Network and Performance Management (NPM) is indispensable because it allows you to support, integrate, and monitor the wide array of tools you work with and allowing you to swiftly pinpoint any network related problems, optimize network performance, and predict future network trends!


In addition, NPM allows you to enhance user experience by ensuring your users can access your services fast and reliably!

Some NMP tools include:

  • Application Performance Monitoring Tools (APM) for monitoring application performance.

  • Log Management Tools for managing and analyzing log files.

  • Network Performance Monitoring Tools for monitoring network health and performance.


Software Deployment and Management 

Software deployment management is the ability to deploy software remotely regardless of whether it is on individual computers, multiple desktops, or multiple systems across an organization. This process encompasses everything from the initial installation of software to its configuration, updating, and eventual retirement. 

 

Effective software deployment and management ensures that every component of the organization's tech stack is current, functional, and secure, and as a result, it allows you to have a functional and smooth technology stack.  


Some examples of software deployment and management software include:  

  • Application Deployment for deploying and managing applications. 

  • Package Managers for managing software dependencies. 


What are The Challenges of Managing Your Technology Stack?  

In our experience, technology stack management is one of the most complex tasks for IT professionals. Managing multiple solutions at the same time comes with a unique set of challenges.

 

To manage a tech stack effectively, you must ensure that:  

  • There is at least one qualified expert on each of these technologies. 

  • Your experts are up-to-speed with the latest updates and security trends. 

  • Your team is constantly trained to stay up to date with the latest trends and best practices. 

  • Each one of your solutions is monitored 24/7/365.
