Partner Spotlight: HyperWorks Partner Alliance – A Year in Review

HyperWorks Partner Alliance

In 2011, the HyperWorks Partner Alliance enjoyed another year of rapid growth while helping to strengthen the value of Altair’s HyperWorks platform. After its third year of operation, over 500 companies have joined the HWPA from 30 countries, with 100 joining in 2011 alone.

This year, two new Partner applications, MindManager and StressCheck, joined the suite of available third party applications. MindManager by Mindjet is an information mapping software that captures and organizes information in an intuitive visual framework that fosters clarity, innovative thinking and communication to improve business results. StressCheck by ESRD is an advanced FEA tool that offers detailed stress and fracture analysis capabilities that make it a complimentary tool to RADIOSS and OptiStruct for customers optimizing the design of metallic and composite structures.

The HWPA also expanded its team, hiring a Partner Solutions Manager, who’s responsibilities include the acquisition of new partner technology for the program. With a heightened focus on expanding the platform of third party software, the HWPA is scheduled to welcome three additional new partners in the first quarter of 2012- Key to Metals, ThermoAnalytics, and Ontonix.  With these new additions, the Partner Alliance will boast 17 applications that HyperWorks users can access on-demand using their existing HyperWorks Units.
