What it means to be technology agnostic

Kiandra - 25/07/2022
To be technology agnostic is to believe there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’, or ‘one true tech’ approach to solving a problem. Instead, it’s about selecting the best possible solution.

It is so easy to get swept up in the array of flashy tools that have been developed to make modern businesses run efficiently. It may also seem easy to mould business processes to fit into whatever tool the organisation decided to buy and implement – square peg, round hole.

Off-the-shelf may not be an 'easy fix' 

While it may look like a simple fix to pick an off-the-shelf solution, the reality is, it might not be the right fit for your business and end up being a costly, time-consuming headache.  

To ensure you are getting the right solution, it is important to have a clearly defined problem. A well-considered solution will ensure technology preferences are not dictating how to solve a problem, but, instead, let the problem drive the technology choices.

Tech agnostic opportunity 

By spending the time to go over the purpose of the process you may find there is a better tool to get the job done or discover an opportunity to create a new tool altogether.  

There is so much possibility that instead of viewing processes through technology, flip that around to viewing technologies to fit your processes. That’s tech agnostic.  

Bill Gates possibly said it best: “The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.”
