- About us
Seerene originated from the Hasso Plattner Institute's (HPI) more than 15 years of academic research into how data on software as intangible, dynamic, and abstract phenomena can be analyzed, visualized and understood. The seminal research project, which dealt with inventing a type of "software cartography", laid the foundation for several additional research projects on software process mining and AI-driven software engineering, which have been the basis for the ongoing partnership between Seerene and HPI.
Dr. Johannes Bohnet, co-founder of Seerene, investigated concepts and techniques of software maps as a starting point for visual software analytics in his dissertation. Today, they form part of Seerene's platform that helps customers to deliver reliable, dependable and affordable software systems on a consistent basis.
Seerene has since been recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor and by McKinsey and Google as B2B Scale-Up of the Year and was selected by Microsoft for its 2018 ScaleUp program.
As founder & CEO, Johannes defines Seerene’s vision and strategy, so that the product satisfies the demands of both current and future customer markets. Dr. Bohnet leverages his role as Seerene’s CEO to promote his vision of a network of executives and leading experts dedicated to solving software’s most pressing challenges. Johannes frequently accepts invitations to speak on the topics of software excellence.
Before founding Seerene, Johannes capped off a successful career in academia, where he’d studied at the universities of Heidelberg and Münster, by achieving a Ph.D. in computer science at the University of Potsdam. During this time, Johannes led Hasso Plattner Institute’s research group on software analytics and visualization.
