What we can do for you

Strategic advice (CTO)

Experienced CTO’s are rare and most companies don’t need one permanently. That is why Stekz offers interim CTO level help.

Audit your IT

Having seen a wide range of companies we can do both quick and exhaustive audits.

Design your solution

Using the unique top-down approach and tools of Stekz guarantees a design that perfectly fits your needs. 

Develop & integrate

We are passionate and experienced software professionals aiming to build solutions that customers love.

Keeping it simple

You should understand what we are building. That is why we work top-down, from high level business process design to low level implementation. Talks with you are about your domain and processes, not about technology. You will never feel lost or confused. And we can be sure we are exactly building what you need.

Areas of expertise


Business process design

A good understanding of the domain and processes of a customer is key to the success of a software project. Conversations with our customers are therefore about the processes instead of technologies. In an agile manner we then automate processes step by step. This is the easiest and most effective way to keep customers informed and in control.

Domain Driven Design
We build software to automate processes from your domain. Domain Driven Design (DDD) is a proven approach for making sure the software development stays within a defined scope.

BPMN
We use the industry standard Business Process Modelling & Notation (BPMN) to design processes that are both clear and executable. Our work in this area is actually world leading.

Archimate & TOGAF
Our software architectures are developed using the TOGAF framework and Archimate architecture modelling language.


Software development

Software is for automating processes. Whether for efficiency reasons or to deliver new business value. We are allround software professionals dedicated to finding the best possible technology for the job. We are solution driven, not technology driven. But some technologies have proven themselves over the years.

AI
With over 20 years of experience in AI we are delighted with the recent applicability of AI to real world problems. AI really is a game changer.

Python
We have been using Python successfully for many projects for over 15 years. To give something back to the community we have been hosting the biggest Dutch Python conference, PyGrunn, for over a decade.

Rust
If performance and security are the highest priorities we have come to love Rust. A systems programming language with a bright future.


Operational IT

Stekz professionals are well versed in a very broad range of technologies to find the best possible combination of technologies to keep your processes running as efficiently as possible.

Cloud
Having built and deployed cloud solutions since 2008 we can confidently say that the cloud is here to stay. But not all clouds are the same. We have experience with all the major cloud offerings (AWS, GKE, Azure).

Kubernetes
Kubernetes is the highly successful container orchestration layer for abstracting away the underlying layers. It makes building, deploying and software a lot easier.

Workflow engines
Your product is the result of processes in a certain domain. Those processes are our start-all and end-all of every project. Workflow engines (such as Zeebe) provide insight and control at the process level.

Postresql
Postgresql is our favourite open source database. We have extensive knowledge in large Postgresql setups and migration scenarios (such as from Oracle to Postgresql).
