This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Placed side by side, the Adverb "technically" actually comes from the Noun "technique" (practical skill). While of course "technologically" is from "technology."
So you can say: "The company is in great need of TECHNICALLY skilled workers" and "The company is TECHNOLOGICALLY superior to its competitors."
But there are instances when "technique" overlaps with "technology", especially when a combination of skill and the applied sciences is referred to.
