The SPT Development Tech Radar is inspired by the Zalando Tech Radar and is built with the code that Zalando have kindly open sourced. The Tech Radar is a list of technologies with an assessment called a ring assessment. We use the same four rings that Zalando use, with the following semantics:
ADOPT — Technologies we have high confidence in to serve our purpose. Technologies that our software consultants are experienced using, low risk and recommended to be used across all current and future projects.
TRIAL — Technologies that our consultants have successfully used to solve a problem but have not been used widely across multiple projects. TRIAL technologies are slightly more risky.
ASSESS — Technologies that are promising and have potential to be useful in upcoming projects. ASSESS technologies have higher risks as they are usually brand new and/or our consultants have limited real-world experience with them. A Proof Of Concept must exist or be created for technologies in this ring, before using on a customer project.
HOLD — Technologies not recommended to be used for new projects. Technologies that we think are not (yet) worth (further) investing in or have been found to be problematic in the past.
The Tech Radar is a constantly evolving record of the technology choices we have made and helps our software consultants to pick the best technologies for new projects.
We are software consultants with many years experience in the IT industry, designing, building and successfully delivering bespoke software solutions. We are passionate about technology, code and delivering high quality software to meet our customer's needs.
