Seerene, the advanced analytics spin-off of the Hasso Plattner Institute, announced today it raised $5 million in seed funding earlier this year to scale the company and bring its SaaS platform of the same name to the U.S. and Asia. The funding round was led by Earlybird Venture Capital, and included backing from other investors.
seerene provides revolutionary insights and analytics to help enterprises, IT services companies and regulators make accurate decisions and drive change across all software stacks, teams and technologies. Delivered via SaaS, seerene also helps IT services companies offer a new level of transparency within customer projects, resulting in increased competitiveness, faster delivery, better software and increased customer satisfaction.
“seerene has the potential to lead a significant positive change in the ecosystem around software,” Board Member for Earlybird Venture Capital and Seerene investor Jason Whitmire said. “seerene’s impact will be far-reaching, changing how software is written and development teams are managed, how IT companies deliver services, and how regulators view risk management in mission-critical software systems.”
Oliver Muhr recently joined Seerene as CEO to scale the company and oversee its expansion into the U.S. and Asia. He previously served as COO and general manager of various global businesses at SunGard, a leading provider of software and services to the education, financial services, and public sectors.
“Today software is ubiquitous and mission-critical to almost every company,” Muhr said. “seerene is the platform that allows CIOs and all stakeholders in the IT Services & Software industry to gain actionable insights and make real-time, strategic decisions across applications, code and teams. I’m excited to be joining the company at this exciting time.”
