Introduction and Background

A technology development partner is an organization or business with a background in technology that works with a client (you) to create a new digital tool, system, or process. Selecting a technology development partner may seem like a relatively straightforward task, but many options and considerations at each stage will create a solid foundation for project success. The goal of this guide is to provide information and advice for selecting a technology development partner, including questions to ask yourself throughout the process. Each technology product and organization is different, and their related needs will be different as well. The goal of this guide is not to prescribe specific answers, but rather to give general guidance about options that will help you understand your own needs.
