Welcome to StratEx’s documentation¶
StratEx brings focused collaboration between business, consultancy and software development teams.
A bit of history¶
In 2006, a large Project for the European Commission starts. It implies about 30 Member States willing to exchange sensitive data to protect the citizens, find stolen items like cars, trucks or boats…
The project involves many consulting companies in order to collect the business and technical requirements, develop the applications and setup the infrastructure as well as ensure a smooth quality assurance.
For that reason, e-DTM is born (former name of StratEx).
Our team of 25 consultants had to process more than 9000 deliverables over 7 years; meaning keep track of the delivery, quality check and storage of all those deliverables including reports, white papers, business & technical analysis, acceptance & activity reports as well as the meeting minutes. We included the management of risks, contracts, payments, missions etc.
All those activities couldn’t have been managed using neither spread sheets nor MS Access database. We decided to develop from scratch an application. We integrated the best practices from PRINCE2 & PMBOK and created templates of documents that could be reused during the lifetime of the Project.
End of 2010, one member of the team left the company he was working for in order to create a Spin-off of the StratEx and called it StratEx for Strategy Execution to make it available to a bigger audience.
In 2013, we moved the software on the Cloud in order to reach a bigger audience.
The application has been used by an agency from the European Commission, several Spin-offs from the “Université Libre de Bruxelles” and we are talking with banks.
This guided tour walks you through the steps necessary to setup a Project until its acceptance.
The “Take tour” is a rather Spartan but a careful read will prove that the minimalist documentation is sufficient for most users.
Buttons “Next” and “Previous” are available at the end of each page to facilitate your journey through the documentation
