The most difficult task for any CIO or CTO is to choose a technology with suits their customer’s need. It also depends on previous experience of leadership technology team with any specific programming language. The most common factors are:

  • Development objectives
  • Nature of business
  • Resources availability
  • Technology maturity
  • Community support
  • Cost
  • Scalability
  • Security
  • Implementation time & efforts

and many more….
