How to Drive Adoption of Your Tech Stack in 2022

Organizations have been investing heavily in technology for various reasons. While some want to adopt emerging technologies to streamline their crucial processes, others want to stay relevant by leveraging the latest techniques and maintaining a competitive edge in the market. The bottom line is an organization’s technology stack has become a key component of its business growth strategy. However, it is even more critical to effectively and efficiently identify the right solutions to meet the business goals. Regardless of what your business demands, you cannot just go out and shop for the latest and greatest technology solutions. One must understand the business needs to invest in the right technology to ensure it supports the business today and forever.

Understanding the business drivers for adoption

Before you invest in new technology, it is crucial to do your due diligence to take stock of what you already have. So, analyze what’s already there and think about the business needs and related solutions as it relates to business goals and their alignment. The idea is to find solutions that meet the goals and align well with the business. Then, once you identify such solutions, invest in them. So, let’s say one of your business goals is to bring down the office overheads. Without a clear roadmap to direct your efforts, meeting the goal might not be easy. It might look as easy as issuing new laptops to the workforce and asking them to work remotely, freeing up the office spaces. However, a crucial step here is to move all the data and critical apps to the cloud so that these can be accessed by the resources remotely. However, if you simply adopt new technologies without carving out the KPIs, there is no way you can measure the success or failure of additional funding for new technologies. Therefore, weighing the pros and cons is essential before adopting more unique solutions once the problem statement is chalked out. Some of the drivers that can be analyzed are – competitive drivers, cost, and efficiency.

Map your current tech stack to the drivers

Once you have analyzed the business drivers, ask yourself specific questions to understand the need for adoption. Some of these questions include:

Are we still using this technology?

Review the current technology stock you have in place and ensure it is used to its total capacity. If you find out there could be an opportunity to move away from that technology or utilize it in a way that you weren’t doing already, this is the time to make the change. The outcome could either be that you will replace it with another technology that helps drive the existing processes, or you will start utilizing the same technology in a way that aligns with your business goals better.

How do we like it?

Create a list of what has worked well with the existing tech stack. For instance – you heard good reviews from customers that offered them an easy-to-use interface. And this is something that you had as one of your business goals. Having such pointers readily available will make it easy for you to understand if the technology you are considering adopting will meet the need of the hour. If you choose technology that drives fast adoption and results, you make a good investment and align strategically with your business and business goals.

Communicate the roadmap to stakeholders and invest in the right solutions

Once you are clear on what you want and what aligns strategically with your business goals, communicate it to the solution vendors to understand your needs. Seek help from technology experts who understand and have expertise in highly advanced, innovative, and cutting edge solutions for your problem statement. They must be aligned to techno trends and updated with “what’s next” in the industry to offer you the best solutions.

Drive adoption through effective mechanisms

You have finally acquired your shiny technology, but the job is still half done. The following important task enables users to use it in the best possible way. You can drive enablement through internal sessions, providing documentation with clear instructions on how to use it, and direct contact with vendor support teams.

Technology is undoubtedly essential for any business to stay relevant and competitive in the marketplace. However, not every change is necessary or needed for business. Therefore organizations need to chalk out a proper plan or roadmap to reap maximum benefits from the investment made towards the newer solutions. Management should continually evaluate the need and effectiveness of technology and align with the business goals.
