The technology choices that provide the platform or foundation for critical business applications have a far wider and deeper reaching impact across the organization than just a specific application deployment. These choices also affect everything from hiring decisions, to how quickly customer demands and business requirements can be met.

We also explore how and when these technologies can be used together.
