Welcome to the website of steX bv. Currently, steX primarily encapsulates my consulting activities in the area of software engineering and scalable software design. The long-term goal is to promote scalable design and support it, both through services, and by introducing new methods and techniques. On this website you will find more information about the consulting activities, and the ideas and techniques for scalable design.

Our vision

Software engineering is about continuously balancing three key dimensions: technology, people, and value:

  • technology: how to apply SE techniques to manage software development.
  • people: how to empower people to work effectively and manage complexity.
  • value: the continuous economical trade-offs that must be considered; are the costs worth the benefits, are development efforts delivering value to the customer.

Our unique approach is to 'calibrate' this balance using the vision and techniques of scalable design, with a toolbox of common, state-of-the-art and unique composition techniques, the latter developed in recent years at the University of Twente.

A scalable design has the ability to enhance the design model of a system by adding or modifying functionality or features with minimal effort (impact). In other words, it is a design that is scalable with respect to evolving requirements, growing features and functionality, changes and extensions, and alternative implementations for different environments and platforms.

You can find more information about our approach in this white paper.
