STE provides high-level services that enhance the value of the opportunities brought by business challenges. STE resources assess each project individually and oversee the delivery of services within several key areas.
Software Tech Enterprises has deep, in-house expertise in each of our core service offerings. In our twelve years of being in business, we have obtained hands-on experience delivering IT solutions and services to our customers. Our core competencies include:
IT Management Consulting Services
IT Planning – Determines how an organization’s IT investments will support its long-term investments. Clearly defines an organization’s objectives and assesses both the internal and external situations to formulate strategy, implement the strategy, evaluate the progress, and make adjustments as necessary to stay on track. In addition, IT planning helps to best measure the organization’s IT investment efficiency.
IT Governance – Defines and describes the processes for deciding how money should be spent. Our method includes the prioritization and justification of investments. We will provide means to control spending, such as budgets and authorization levels. IT Governance also describes various aspects of IT change. It describes the management and controls for a portfolio of projects. It is used to make sure that IT change processes comply with regulatory requirements. Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and Service Level Objectives (SLOs) are both used to define levels of service that are acceptable to businesses, and are then used as a basis for monitoring services.
Enterprise Architecture (EA) – An ongoing business function that supports how organizations determine how to best execute the strategies that drive development. Our solutions assist the organization in establishing its logic for business processes and IT infrastructure to reflect the integration and standardization requirements of its operating model.
Performance Reference Model (PRM)
Business Reference Model (BRM)
Data Reference Model (DRM)
Application Reference Model (ARM)
Infrastructure Reference Model (IRM)
Security Reference Model (SRM)
Service Oriented Architecture – Defines an organization’s strategy on how to integrate widely disparate applications for internet/intranet working on a multitude of implementation platforms. By implementing an SOA, an organization can better define its interface in terms of protocols and functionality.
Enterprise Resource Planing (ERP) Strategy – Leverages an organization’s business systems and process workflows to gain business intelligence, improve workflow, gain greater control and reduce costs. STE provides knowledge on the necessary software components that will be most useful in both integrating and streamlining an organization's business units.

STE’s IT assessment services evaluate IT strengths and weaknesses to enhance decision-making relative to the organization's strategic and tactical goals. We analyze IT alignment with the business strategy, IT management processes and key performance indicators that support the organization's overall IT strategy. The analysis focuses on critical areas such as: assessment IT strategy, IT governance, technology management, operations management, and service level management.

Software Application Development – The development of a software product in a planned and structured process. Applications are designed and customized to meet the needs of the client.
Agile Software Development (ASD) – A methodology for the creative process that anticipates the need for flexibility and applies a level of realism into the delivery of the finished product. ASD’s focus is to keep code simple, test often, and deliver functional bits of the application as soon as they are ready. Agile Software Development’s goal is to build upon small client-approved parts as the project progresses, as opposed to delivering on a large application at the end of the project.
Enterprise Data Management Services
Enterprise Data Management (EDM) assists customers with all aspects of Data Management, from governance to modeling to deployment and security.
Software Tech is experienced in developing the following tenets of EDM:
Data Security and Data Warehousing – Develops a Data Warehouse architecture to provide a means to house, transform, and catalog the main source of data.

Our solution focuses on building the data architecture to map the conceptual, logical, and physical data structures.
Database and System Integration – Organizes and consolidates data from multiple sources, which will enable a merged visualization of the data. Our solutions focus on collecting and moving the data from one database source or flat file on a source system to another database or flat file on a target system.

Business Process Re-engineering (BPR) – Focuses on the analysis and design of workflows and processes across an organization. BPR's overall objective is to move away from current processes and procedures and to institute radical redesign of the processes to achieve dramatic improvements in critical areas through the implementation of information technology.
Performance Management – Directs clients on better practices and activities they can use to continually meet their goals in the most effective and efficient way. Focus can be on performance from the organization as a whole, or can be broken down into various departments/employees.
Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) – Includes the methods and processes used by organizations to manage risks and seize opportunities related to the achievement of their objectives. ERM provides a framework for risk management, which typically involves identifying particular events or circumstances relevant to the organization's objectives (risks and opportunities), assessing them in terms of likelihood and magnitude of impact, determining a response strategy, and monitoring progress. By identifying and proactively addressing risks and opportunities, business enterprises protect and create value for their stakeholders, including owners, employees, customers, regulators, and society overall.
