We speak your language
Stekz is not a standard software company. We are a digital partner that helps entrepreneurs all the way from the initial creative phase to the operational phase. From brainstorming ideas to running platforms in the cloud.
We make sure customers understand what we are building. We bring along new ideas, we challenge existing ideas, we factor in the possibilities and limitations of (new) technologies, we advice on the organisational side of IT, and we make sure the customer stays in control.
A dedicated team that fits the size and nature of your business will be assembled. The team covers both business- and technical expertise. It will guide you through all the phases and deliver a state-of-the-art software platform. This is our BizDevOps approach.
Our method: BizDevOps
Product development with BizDevOps means every decission is driven by business value, leading to better software.
Success of software projects is defined by how good the business domain and processes are understood. Our experts help you with that. And the My.Stekz BizDevOps platform offers all the tools and services to make this effective, easy and fun. For instance with our boardgame ‘Pro6’ or our amazing business process modeler, or our Enterprise Workflow Insight System.
Our experienced software professionals love to build great solutions for you. Big or small, mobile or web, cloud or on-premise, you name it. The My.Stekz BizDevOps platform keeps everybody on the same page, from business to technology . Making implementation faster, better, stronger. Hit the ground running!
Stekz can deploy, run and manage your software solution so you can focus on your business instead of technology. Our operational teams make sure your platform is available and up to date. Whether it runs in the cloud or on-premise. My.Stekz offers many integrated tools to help and provide business owner with the right insights.
Experts in business digitalization
We are over 25 passionate software professionals that have been at the forefront of internet technology for around 30 years. We love helping companies with a rock-solid and modern software platform that kickstarts their new business. The broad interest in our trade makes that we consider any technology that fits best. We don’t push technology, we select the right technology based on requirements. Our goal is to deliver the ultimate software platform as fast as possible for as little money as possible. Because that validates our BizDevOps approach. So our goal is in line with that of our customers.
A proper understanding of the domain and processes of a business is key to the success of a software project. Conversations with our customers are therefore about their processes instead of technologies. In an agile manner we 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.
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.
Proven architectural standards
Our solutions are built upon solid software architecture principles. Those are a fundamental part of the My.Stekz platform.
Software can automate business processes. Whether to improve efficiency or deliver new business value. We are all-round software professionals dedicated to finding the best possible technology for the job. We are business value driven, not technology driven. Still, we are deeply passionate about software technology. Some technologies have proven themselves over the years.
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.
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.
If performance and security are the highest priorities we have come to love Rust. A systems programming language with a bright future.
…and many more
TypeScript, FastAPI, Golang, Django, Vue, Azure, K8S, React, Flutter, SQLAlchemy, GCE, PyTorch, Vim, Tensorflow, C#, AWS, etc etc….
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.
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 is the highly successful container orchestration layer for abstracting away the underlying layers. It makes building, deploying and software a lot easier.
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 Camunda) provide insight and control at the process level.
Postgresql is our favourite open source database. We have extensive knowledge in large Postgresql setups and migration scenarios (such as from Oracle to Postgresql).
Our factory: my.stekz
Platforms such as Github and Gitlab have been very succesful in improving the software development lifecycle (also known as DevOps). Stekz aims to build upon that succes by adding a crucial business layer, resulting in a ‘BizDevOps’ platform. With the extra Biz layer all tools, technologies, knowledge and support needed for a rock-solid digitalisation process are part of one integrated environment. By neatly integrating all layers the full experience is both powerful and pleasant. While still enabling users to cherry-pick only the parts they need.
