Seeq announces $23 Million Series B  to fund IIoT analytics growth strategy

July 18, 2018 – Seeq Corporation, a manufacturer of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) advanced analytics software, announced it has secured $23M in Series B funding led by the Altira Group with participation by Chevron Technology Ventures, next47, the Siemens-backed global venture firm, Second Avenue Partners and other existing investors.

The funding enables Seeq to expand its development, sales and marketing resources, and also increase its presence in international markets. 

Seeq’s software applications, Seeq Workbench and Seeq Organizer, enable manufacturing organizations to analyze, predict, collaborate, and distribute insights to production outcomes. Seeq is designed to run on-premise, on Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services cloud platforms, or in mixed on-premise and on-cloud deployments.

Altira Group, headquartered in Denver, Colorado, has over 20 years of investment experience in oil & gas software and technology startups.

Altira’s investment in Seeq is via its Fund VI partnership with a majority of the U.S. super-independent oil & gas operators, including Devon Energy (DVN), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD), Apache (APA), and EQT (EQT).

Seeq’s opportunity is the manufacturing and IIoT analytics market, and has multiple vectors for creating business value:

  • Opportunities by industry. Current Seeq customers include oil & gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, pulp & paper, power generation, food & beverage, utilities and discrete manufacturing with remote monitoring/predictive analytics solutions, in countries that span the globe from India to Australia, the U.S., and Europe.
  • Opportunities by vendor. Seeq partners with an extensive set of process automation vendors and works with systems sold by OSIsoft, Emerson Automation Solutions, Inductive Automation, Honeywell, Rockwell Automation, AspenTech, Schneider Electric, GE, Siemens, and others.
  • Opportunities by audience. Seeq expanded its target audience in 2018 from subject matter experts (e.g., process engineers) to include teams collaborating on projects, managers sharing production reports and analytics across the plant, and data scientists wrangling data for algorithms.
  • Opportunities by deployment. Customers may access Seeq’s applications from any modern browser and run the Seeq server application on premise, on a cluster, or in the cloud. 

“As seen in ARC Industry Forum presentations, Seeq benefits its customers by making it easier for them to gain and share intelligence from their manufacturing data,” said Craig Resnick, Vice President, ARC Advisory Group. “With Altira Group and strategic investors next47 and Chevron Technology Ventures, Seeq is gaining recognition for its ability to help users make better decisions, faster in operating environments.”

Seeq’s latest release, R20, introduces features enabling support for the integration of structured data from SQL Server, MySQL, and CSV files, as well as distribution of Seeq Workbench analyses to coworkers.
