How to Know the Tech Stack of a Website in 3 Simple Steps

Roshan Nair April 05 2022

What comes to mind when you think of the term “tech stack”?

Probably a bunch of tech jargon such as - programming language, tools, libraries, site framework, UI/UX, etc., upon which a website/application is built. And that’s pretty much what a tech stack is.

A tech stack is generally understood as an encyclopedia that gives you all the information about the tools and software that the organization uses to carry out its operations.

However, the meaning of the term has changed significantly over the years.

Tech stacks have evolved from including just the frameworks and programming languages to the entire software stack of the company. It covers information about the tools that the marketing, finance, HR, sales, and other teams use for their operations.

How does knowing the tech stack of a website help? 

One word: Technographics.

Technographics is the method used to profile target customers based on their tech stack. 

And how does that help? With technographics, you can easily understand a company’s tech stack and use it to determine its buying potential. 

In fact, over 40,000 marketing, sales, and BI team members of the most reputed and best brands make use of technographic data every single day. (Datarade)

Information like the software that the target audience uses, when they started using it, the duration of the contract, etc., is immensely useful for sales and marketing teams as they can use this data to estimate when their audience is ready to buy.

How to Know the Tech Stack of a Website

Short answer—go ahead and email them directly. However, this is highly inconvenient because it requires quite a bit of time and effort on your part. Also, you might be denied the information. 

Which brings you to the question - what is the easiest, most surefire way to find out the tech stack of a website?

Step #1: Go To Our Website

This will take you to Salesforce’s company page:

Step #3: Go To The Tech Stack Section

Click on ‘Technology Stack’ in the left-hand side menu and voila! You will see Salesforce’s tech stack.

In the Technology Stack section, you can find the tech stack Salesforce uses for each function. By default, you’ll see the tech stack they use for marketing. To view the tech stack they use for other functions, simply select the appropriate function from the drop-down menu on the right-hand side.
