Enterprise-Wide Material Intelligence from One Source of Truth

Material Data Center enables organizations to consolidate their proprietary data within a secure enterprise workspace. A common materials database with role-based access control provides one source of truth for the entire enterprise. This ensures instant access to approved, revision-controlled material data developed with consistent numerical models. Access data sheets, raw data, and solver cards with full traceability back to the supplier source, ensuring valid assumptions and consistency across teams.

Altair material solutions supplement physical test data with properties and material models developed using Altair Material Modeler and Altair® Multiscale Designer®. Moreover, Altair® RapidMiner® empowers users to harness existing material data through its advanced machine learning technology to generate synthetic material models and unlock new insights in the process. Additionally, Material Data Center can connect to third-party and customer applications through its APIs.
