STX Next, an IT services and consulting firm, has forged a new alliance with Seerene, an innovative provider of the first integrated software development process mining platform. This partnership is aimed at augmenting the quality, speed and efficiency of software development within businesses with the backing of AI-enabled insights.

Its analytics platform integrates data from all software development and delivery aspects, translating this data into Seerene's Digital Boardroom.

Based on over 15 years of academic research from the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI), Seerene's platform was developed to analyse, visualise and comprehend software development process data. Dr Johannes Bohnet, the CEO and Co-Founder of Seerene, who previously led a research group at HPI, noted that software maps remain a central component of Seerene's offering.

On discussing the new partnership, Dr Bohnet stated, "STX Next boasts a rich and established history of software excellence, demonstrating a proven track record over the years. Our new collaboration with STX Next not only solidifies this tradition but also ensures customers a heightened standard of quality software."

He further highlighted the transparency of the partnership, revealed through an exhaustive view of the complexities of software development processes and existing code bases.

"This partnership is founded on principles of transparency, offering a comprehensive view into the intricacies of software development processes and existing code bases," said Dr Bohnet. 

"Aligned with our objectives and fueled by a mutual commitment to excellence, the synergy between Seerene and STX Next promises to deliver unparalleled value to our clients."

STX Next's CEO, Ronald Binkofsi, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership, highlighting that Seerene's expertise will be intrinsic to enhancing the services provided to clients. He said, "Seerene's expertise and offering will be invaluable to our teams and customers, and no doubt enhances the services that we can deliver for our clients."

"We are committed to improving and maintaining our exceptional standards, and the additional insights offered by Seerene's capabilities are crucial to achieving that aim."
