200 customers have joined this revolutionary program
TROY, Mich., Oct. 8 -- Altair, a global provider of technology and services empowering client innovation and decision making, announces a very successful first year of operating its HyperWorks Enabled Community (HWEC). To date, more than 200 companies worldwide have joined the HWEC, and gained access to partner applications at no incremental cost using their existing HyperWorks software licenses.
"When Altair introduced HyperWorks Units in 1999 it provided Multimatic with access to a number of additional Altair products, which significantly improved the efficiency of our engineering development process," says Alex Duquette, analysis manager for Multimatic Technical Centre. "The extension of this concept, known as the HyperWorks Enabled Community, provides additional simulation capabilities including fatigue, CFD and occupant safety at no additional cost. Multimatic took advantage of this program as soon as it became available, and it has resulted in better utilization of Multimatic's investment in HyperWorks Units and allows us to offer a broader and more complete range of analysis services."
Dr. Michael Wahl, vice president of engineering for Achates Power, adds, "With Altair's HyperWorks Enabled Community, we are able to take advantage in a cost-effective way of a broad range of analysis tools that we may only use as few as 6-8 times a year. Additionally, because all licenses pull from a common pool we have the flexibility to instantaneously change our usage to meet our own internal demands. The Altair's HyperWorks Enabled Community has been invaluable in helping us meet our CAE software needs."
HyperWorks Enabled Community members can optimize their total software investment by leveraging their HyperWorks license to gain on-demand access to a growing portfolio of best-in-class third-party solutions. The HWEC model provides unprecedented flexibility and ease of deployment making new technology available without the traditional cost and burdens associated with acquiring new software. Additionally, customers receive application support directly from the partner's technical experts, ensuring the successful deployment of these new technologies.
"The HWEC allows our customers to develop better products faster and at lower costs," says James Scapa, Altair chairman and CEO. "The early success of the HWEC is evidence that customers are seeking more equitable software delivery models and will embrace programs which improve their business performance."
HyperWorks is a platform of 28 applications developed by Altair augmented with 25 partner applications through the HWEC. Its patented licensing technology allows users to transparently share access to this broad suite of applications across their global network infrastructure.
"The HyperWorks Enabled Community gives us a lot of flexibility because it lets us use the best software for each particular job we encounter," says Juergen Veith, managing director of Tecosim GmbH. "In addition, we are also able to try new products at no extra cost, saving the company money."
Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Siegfried Bludszuweit, CEO of MET Motoren, explains, "The HyperWorks Enabled partner program gave us the ability to utilize state of the art fatigue analysis software through existing HyperWorks Licenses. Now we are able to offer our customers more in depth analysis in a shorter period of time."
Altair has significantly expanded the partner software available to customers through the HWEC. Initially launched one year ago with six partners providing 15 applications, today the Community includes eleven partners providing 25 applications.
"nCode, as the first partner to make its software available to Altair customers through the HWEC, worked very closely with the Altair team to develop the integration of DesignLife," said Steve Tudberry, vice president of nCode Software Brand of HBM. "We just completed our first full year in the program and overall the experience has exceeded our expectations for revenue growth, new customers and demand for our entire product range. While every new partnership require focus and determination, I am delighted with the overall success of the program and look forward to the future."
Partner Applications currently available through the HyperWorks Enabled Community include; AcuSolve and AcuConsole from ACUSIM, CFD++, CAA++ and MIME from Metacomp, DesignLife from nCode, DSHplus from FLUIDON, FEKO Suite from EMSS, FEMFAT from Magna, MADYMO suite from TASS, SC/Tetra suite from Software Cradle, Sculptor from Optimal Solution Software, solidThinking and inspired from solidThinking and VMAP from TechPassion.

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
