Technology changes are more frequent now as compared to a decade back. With this development, it has become necessary for organizations to keep the TDNA (Tech DNA) quotient high in order to survive as well as to gain a competitive edge in areas that include defining solutions and operations management. There are many examples where enterprises, including government organizations, are strategically looking at identifying technology trends to gain optimization, reduce TCO (total cost of ownership), and prevent single vendor dominance. Some of the examples are as below:

* Some European government agencies have made Linux and Open Office as the standard core technology stack.
* A study presented in the recently concluded User Interface Experts Group annual seminar has shown that the web sites that implement RIA like GoogleMaps have a higher user base as compared to conservative web sites.
* One of the largest casinos in Las Vegas has switched to using RFID to prevent thefts.

The following experience of ours demonstrates the need for TDNA in operations management.

In one of the long running projects, a customer chose to change the platform from ASP 1.0 to ASP 2.0 with Rich Internet Architecture with AJAX as User Interface layer.
