A wise technical decision can be a huge time saver. However, entrepreneurs who launch a new web application usually don’t invest enough time in a technological choice that can save them hours of development. For example, when building a website with a map showing real-time data we will use one technology, and for a back-office site in which we want to combine editable views from a database, we will use another one.
Wise decision-making requires years of experience and in-depth knowledge but knowing and understanding the technologies that exist today while considering your team capabilities can assist in determining which technology would best fit your business needs.
