Altair Partner Alliance Grows by 45 Percent

By DE Editors

Altair announced that its Altair Partner Alliance (APA) for Hyperworks and the PBS Works HPC Partner Program now includes 40 partners offering more than 75 applications and services. According to Altair, 13 new technology partners joined the program in 2013.

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.

“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.
 
“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.”

Altair received the Voyager Award from Intel this year for its contribution to “expanding the global reach and overall market growth of Intel Cluster Ready solutions,” the company said.
