SEATTLE – Seeq Corporation, a provider of manufacturing and IIoT advanced analytics software, has reached an agreement with Saudi Aramco to further expand its operational analytics strategy as part of the company’s ongoing Digital Transformation program.
The agreement will provide Saudi Aramco engineers and subject matter experts with Seeq’s self-service analytics, predictive modeling data analytics, and visualization tools.
“Seeq is empowering our engineers and subject matter experts with easy-to-use analytics tools to truly democratize data science. We see this as a key element for scaling operational analytics across the organization,” says Walid A. Al-Naeem, Manager of Process & Control Systems Department, Saudi Aramco.
“We are pleased to partner with Crucial Solutions & Services (CSS) to collaborate on Aramco’s industrial digitalization initiatives,” adds Lisa Graham, CEO of Seeq. “We will do this by leveraging big data, machine learning, and computer science innovations.”
“Seeq will help Saudi Aramco reach new levels of process efficiency, production optimization, and interdisciplinary collaboration,” comments Sulaiman Alzuhair, General Manager and Founder of CSS. “We look forward to working closely with Aramco and Seeq.”
Seeq recently announced closure of a $50 million Series C funding round, led by global venture capital and private equity firm Insight Partners, including participation from existing investors Altira Group, Chevron Technology Ventures, Cisco Investments, and Aramco Ventures. The round brought Seeq’s total funding since inception in 2013 to approximately $115 million.
In addition to distribution through CSS within the Gulf Cooperation Council, Seeq is available worldwide through a partner network of system integrators, which provides training and resale support for Seeq in over 25 countries, augmenting its direct sales organization in North America and Europe.
