What is a tech stack?

Glossary What is a tech stack?

A tech stack, short for "technology stack," refers to a set of technologies—software, tools, and frameworks—that work, within the mobile context, collectively to build and support mobile apps. In mobile marketing, a tech stack equips marketers with the necessary tools for tasks like campaign management and optimization, data analysis, and user engagement.

Why it’s important to get your tech stack right

The right tech stack is crucial for efficient marketing operations, enabling precise targeting, personalization, and performance optimization. It ensures marketers can effectively attract, engage, and retain users, directly influencing the success and growth of mobile apps.

Integrating various components of a tech stack so that each part works in harmony with the others offers numerous advantages:

  • Enhanced data flow: Seamless sharing of data across platforms leads to more accurate analytics and insights.
  • Streamlined operations: Reduces the complexity and time required to manage multiple systems, increasing operational efficiency.
  • Improved campaign effectiveness: Integrated tools can leverage shared data to optimize campaigns in real time.
  • Cost efficiency: Reduces redundancies and lowers costs by eliminating the need for overlapping tools and resources.
  • Faster decision-making: With integrated analytics, marketers can quickly adjust strategies based on comprehensive, real-time data.

Personalization at scale: Enables more effective personalization strategies by using integrated data to tailor user experiences across all touchpoints.

Basic building blocks of a tech stack

Each app’s tech stack is unique in order to address its individual needs, dependent on app vertical, subvertical, audience, strategy, and so on. However, the core components of the stack are generally the same.

  1. Ad tech stack: Manages advertising through platforms like demand-side platforms (DSPs), and ad networks.
  2. Data stack: Handles data aggregation and management, vital for insights and strategies.
  3. Analytics tech stack: Measures campaign results, powered by mobile measurement partners (MMPs) like Adjust for detailed attribution.
  4. AI tech stack: Utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to automate tasks, enhance decision-making, and personalize user interactions.
