In our continued commitment to drive innovation forward, 2022 proved to be a successful and eventful year at Altair that included devoting substantial development resources to growth and expansion, including our data analytics and digital twin solutions, as well as the ongoing investment in our global workforce. As pioneers who empower our customers with innovative technologies and solutions, we continually look to the future to enable their sustainable initiatives.
Over the past several years, we have invested more than half a billion dollars into our data analytics solutions, including most recently, our 2022 acquisition of RapidMiner. We’ve integrated our data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, evolved our sales and technical teams to deliver world-class implementation and support, and made our data science software available via Altair Units. The Altair RapidMiner platform delivers Frictionless AI resulting in quick, repeatable, and successful data analytics programs and helps organizations accelerate their access to insights and improve the efficiency in how they design new products.
Altair’s digital twin solution is highly differentiated, leveraging the convergence of simulation, high-performance computing (HPC), and AI. Our digital twin technology delivers transformational power for organizations to develop better, more sustainable processes and products, and allows customers to anticipate problems with solutions, choose more sustainable approaches, reduce waste and carbon emissions, and improve useful life and reusability.
We continued to prioritize enhancing our world-class culture and investing toward a better society to support diversity and sustainability. This commitment to our workforce earned us another top-50 spot on Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplaces list, by fostering a working environment where everyone is supported, validated, accepted for who they are and valued for their contributions, dedication, and creativity.
These achievements and more are why I believe Altair is poised to succeed. Our human-driven approach and steadfast commitment to our values will guide us to make the world a better place.

Invested in Research and Development
By leveraging the convergence of design and simulation, HPC, and AI, we help organizations transform their decision-making so they can make quicker, smarter choices in an increasingly connected and complex world – all while creating a greener, more sustainable future.
Altair fosters a culture of global diversity, professional and personal development, and innovation.
I’m proud of the work we continue to make in our quest to further diversify our global teams, embrace our values, and make our organization more equitable. Some of this inspiring work includes:
Altair’s global internship: Our global interns play critical roles and help us turn today’s problems into tomorrow’s sustainable opportunities.
Education sponsorship: We’re committed to funding scholarships and educational programs for underrepresented groups through diversity partners and global university programs.
Raising the bar on wellness: We strive to offer the best health practices to foster wellness and encourage our employees (and community members) to lead healthy, sustainable lifestyles.
Empowering diversity through ERGs: The success of our employee resource groups (ERGs) lies directly with their incredible members – their bold ideas and commitment spark change internally and externally.
Here, we believe that empowering each individual encourages an entrepreneurial mindset and collaboration. We’ve created a culture where our diversities, support of inclusion, and unique experiences are embraced and essential to our success.
