Seerene's Mission

Seerene's revolutionizing software development with its offering: an advanced AI-driven software process mining platform with a digital boardroom. This cutting-edge solution provides corporate software organizations the means to achieve software excellence, mitigating risks and enabling higher levels of quality, speed, and efficiency.


Our Roots

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 AI-driven software process mining that have been basis for the ongoing partnership between Seerene and HPI.

Dr. Johannes Bohnet, co-founder of Seerene, led a research group at the HPI that investigated concepts and techniques of software maps as a starting point for visual software analytics. Today, they form part of Seerene's platform that helps customers achieve software excellence.

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.
