Seat:Code, the new software centre in Barcelona
In order to adapt to a context that is marked by change and to successfully tackle the company’s digital transformation, at the 2019 Mobile World Congress Seat announced the creation of a software development centre.
Now the company has revealed that the new laboratory is going to be called Seat:Code (Centre of Digital Excellence). Seat:Code is going to work to boost two major dimensions within Seat and the Volkswagen Group.
On one hand, it seeks to continue to further the company’s digital transformation and increase efficiency through process digitalisation. On the other, it aims to strengthen new business models centred on new concepts of vehicle mobility, connectivity and digitalisation with special emphasis on Seat.
The company also announced the creation of its new IT structure, led by Sebastian Grams as Seat’s new Cio. Furthermore, Carlos Buenosvinos will be the Cto of the newly created centre. In this sense, the team at the Metropolis:Lab will be integrated in the new centre to continue developing innovative solutions for better mobility and to harness synergies with the team at the software development centre.
