This is such a great question. I'm the "younger person" on the board of directors at two local charities, and I really try to limit my use of technological terms when talking about how we're going to implement certain strategies. The main thing is, what does this program/feature/approach accomplish and how is it better than the old way? These folks don't want or need to know the terminology, and in fact too much detail can make them feel a little uncomfortable. They just want to know what the tech can do.
So yes - totally depends on the audience.
