Altair Partner Alliance grows 45% 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.  Encouraging compatibility and open communication with other players in this space and supporting most file types, including those of its competitors, Altair continues to make strides in the industry. 

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 of 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.

“Since joining the Altair Partner Alliance in 2008, the relationship has exceeded our expectations for revenue growth, new customers and demand for our entire product range,” said Steve Tudberry, Vice President, HBM-nCode. “In addition, the 2013 Altair Technology Conference series provided a great environment to interact with customers and partners with demonstration and networking opportunities. This allowed us to share our latest capabilities for fatigue and durability analysis with innovative companies from a multitude of industries.” 

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. Companies like HP, Cray Inc., SGI, Fujitsu, Acer, Dell, Intel, NVIDIA, AMD and others benefit from enabling their hardware, software and infrastructure products on PBS Professional, Altair’s industry leading workload management software. These alliances make HPC components more readily accessible to Altair users.

“With their deep expertise in both workload management and end-user applications, Altair is a key software partner for Cray in HPC,” said Peg Williams, Cray’s senior vice president of high performance computing systems. “Cray and Altair have a long-established history of collaboration and working together to deliver the reliable and well-supported computing resources organizations need to be successful.”

One of this year’s most notable achievements was Altair’s honor of receiving the Voyager Award from Intel, reserved for those who have contributed to expanding the global reach and overall market growth of Intel Cluster Ready solutions.

With simple customization abilities and integration opportunities, PBS Works partners have further access to Altair’s customer base, allowing them to continue to expand in desired markets. This creates a mutually beneficial situation, since Altair can provide more extensive HPC solutions to satisfy customer demand.
