Altair 2020: Driving Better Decisions to Accelerate the Pace of Innovation

By Jim Scapa | Chairman and Chief Executive Officer | June 11, 2020

As the world has gotten more complex, more competitive, and infinitely faster, our drive to help customers break through complex problems, and explore and discover on their own terms has never wavered. We provide access to a wide range of different technologies; each on their own give an edge to our customers, but when they apply a range of these solutions, working in concert, their ability to out-innovate the competition soars.

Sam Mahalingam, our CTO for cloud, HPC, and data analytics may have said it best, "When it comes to connected product development, Altair is the only company with the most comprehensive tool set covering ideation, design, engineering, optimization, connection, operations, and analysis. Add to that our more than three decades of product development experience and you have your ideal partner to build smarter products.”

This release is the most significant release of our solutions for design, simulation, data analytics, and HPC in the history of the company.

All our software products have been updated with advancements in user experience and countless new features, including intuitive workflows which empower users to streamline product development, allowing them to get to market faster.

We celebrated by holding a virtual event, Altair 2020 Global Experience – and the turnout was impressive. We had attendees from more than 3,000 companies and 100 countries, and more than 20,000 views of our presentations during the live portion of the event. We can’t thank our customers enough – new and established – for participating.

All the content is now available on-demand (for 30 days), which includes presentations from our CTOs and other top leadership on topics like how simulation-driven design can improve development efficiency, optimize product performance, and accelerate growth. We also discussed smart data insights, high-performance computing, and cloud solutions that can help solve some of the world’s toughest challenges.

The feedback from customers has been overwhelmingly positive. As you know, there are risks associated with virtual events. And even bigger risks doing it for the first time.  This was a great learning experience.

We are committed to delivering our innovations, ideas, and updates virtually, so our customers receive the same level of technical support and insights to which they have become accustomed. In fact, over the past three months we’ve effectively responded to the COVID-19 crisis.

We are investing for the future in countless ways including electronics, systems modeling, smart product design, data analytics, advanced materials, and advanced manufacturing. Altair is uniquely positioned to converge the worlds of simulation and solvers with HPC and data analytics to deliver a sea of change in the pace of innovation. Join us.
