I'm looking for a proper platform to ask about the maintainability of a multitude of technologies as the amount of differing platforms increases.
Most notably, I'm looking into some usage case for
NoSQL and non
I need to look at the big picture, how do we maintain these differing technologies over time if each of them is different to the last.
While we can search for a person with
Oracle knowledge, I have a much harder time imagining looking for someone with
Neo4J combined with
SQL-Server through custom API knowledge.
I also can't imagine putting a developer into a systems administration role, required to maintain and support these platforms.
As each fringe technology is used only for a few cases, and can't warrant a full time employee to maintain them, I can't present a usage case for them without also mentioning how we will future-proof it and maintain it in a few years.
So I'm looking for someone who has experience with handling a multitude of smaller technologies, that are not common and often tailored to their specific usages, to explain how to properly handle such a task.
Where could I ask this?
Alternatively, how could I word this in a format that would fit the SE community of sites?
I'm quite sure people have been tackling this problem with each new technology that arises, so there has to be an answer somewhere.
