The Altair partner alliance grows by 45% to exceed 40 partners in 2013

Altair continues to build the industry-leading ecosystem for computer-aided engineering (CAE) and high-performance computing (HPC) solutions via strategic technology partnerships in the Altair Partner Alliance (APA) for HyperWorks and the PBS Works HPC Partner Program.

This is largely due to the success of numerous and meaningful technology partnerships, facilitated through the application of the unique, patented HyperWorks licensing model.  The APA invites third party software providers to enable their tools on the HyperWorks platform, allowing them to operate seamlessly in conjunction with Altair products.

Many independent software vendors have realized the value of this unique opportunity, causing the program to grow substantially in 2013, reaching agreements with 13 new technology partners. A number of new partners are scheduled to launch in the first half of 2014, including Maplesoft, Sentient Science, NovusNexus, Matelys and Multiscale Design Systems, among others. With 35 active partners, more than half the APA members participated in this year’s Altair Technology Conference series by either sponsoring or attending, helping to illustrate the mutual benefits realized by both the partners and Altair.

The APA has also experienced substantial customer growth since 2012, with nearly a 25 percent increase in customers using partner products and 62 percent of those users accessing more than one partner product for their CAE projects.

Altair also supports its client base with a broad array of integrations with leading HPC technology products.
