“Do Something. If it works, do more of it. If it doesn’t, do something else.”
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Technology is a tool. It can accomplish many things, but it is the “how” you do something that informs the “what” you will accomplish and is driven by the “why.”
There is an old adage about using the right tool for the right job, but even if you have the right tool, it doesn’t mean that the job will be done correctly. Part of getting the job done is how you use the tool. Think of a hammer and how many different ways there are to drive a nail with that same tool.
It is the understanding of how you intend to leverage the technology you need will help narrow down your needs.
