Touchscreen Software Added to Altair Partner Alliance

Press Releases   •   Feb 15, 2017 16:00 CET

TROY, Mich. – Feb. 15, 2017 – TheAltair Partner Alliance(APA) is pleased to announce the addition of Fieldscale’sSENSE to its software offering. Sense is an intuitive and highly advanced touchscreen design and simulation tool. The cutting-edge algorithms provide accurate results up to ten times faster than any other simulation software. As a result, engineers save effort and time and products are launched sooner and with increased profit margins.

“Altair is committed to continually providing cutting-edge and comprehensive solutions to assist electronics companies in creating innovative products to stay ahead of competition,” said Molly Heskitt, Senior Director of Business Development. “Expanding our partnership with Fieldscale, we are excited to introduce Sense software in our offering, which will further empower electronics product designers to create robust solutions and shorten development cycles.”

Sense was developed after months of research on touchscreen industry needs and the product design process. The greatest challenges of effectively using simulation in touchscreen design were all identified and tackled one by one. In Sense, it takes a matter of seconds to set up the design by choosing the analysis type, the controller, the pattern and the stack-up. The parametric analysis capability saves engineers valuable time, enabling the simultaneous testing of hundreds of finger positions in all three dimensions. Algorithms that run in the background are optimized to deliver results with maximum accuracy in a minimal amount of time. Results are presented in heat maps and interactive plots and can be easily filtered and exported. Sense is the new essential tool for touchscreen design.

“Sense is the first of a long line of new generation simulation tools. Simplifying the simulation by hiding all expertise behind a simple intelligent app environment will enable more engineers to use simulation in their design processes,” said Yiorgos Bontzios, CEO at Fieldscale. “We are thrilled that Altair is our ally and together we head to the new era of simulations.”

The touchscreen industry is emerging with all of the new applications and technology developed today. Flexible and curved touch displays, wearables and several applications in this era of the automotive industry are just a few industries that Sense will impact. Design engineers can test new materials, new pattern designs and new technologies, all within Sense’s plug-and-play environment.

An introductory webinar[HO1] for Fieldscale will be held on March 2[HO2]. For more information about the software, please visit the product [HO3] for Sense.

New Envision™ Modern BI Platform Transforms the Cloud Business Model and User Experience

Press Releases   •   Jul 11, 2016 07:26 CEST

Troy, Mich., July 11, 2016 – Altair today announced the general release of Envision, a modern, cloud-based business intelligence platform. Envision will be sold and supported through solidThinking, Altair’s wholly owned subsidiary. More information, free trials, and subscriptions for personal and enterprise use are available at EnvisionBI.com.

Architected for an optimized self-service user experience, Envision democratizes data visualization, exploration and discovery. Users can connect their data to quickly create and publish charts and dashboards in an environment that is intuitive and collaborative yet powerful and secure.

“Altair continues to invest significantly in technologies to enable and leverage exascale computing, cloud appliances and IoT,” says James R. Scapa, Altair’s Founder, Chairman, and CEO. “All of which are driving Big Data and the need to rapidly access, visualize, analyze and share information at all levels in the enterprise. Envision delivers a powerful modern BI platform with fine-grained controls for organizations to easily scale to support the needs of their business and technical user communities.”

Beyond its data-to-dashboard speed, Envision sets itself apart in the rapidly growing BI market space through its unique ability to be accessed as a subscription-based public cloud platform and as a private cloud BI solution. In both cases, there is no price differentiation between viewers and authors; everyone is an author with full administrative controls down to a specific user’s permissions and access.

Powered by a unique floating business model based on concurrent usage – versus named user – and devoid of add-on fees for server enablement, data source connections, printing reports and dashboard creation, Envision provides a scalable, long-term solution for today’s data-driven enterprise.

These benefits directly carry over to the company’s OEM and channel partners where Envision is leveraged as an embedded technology component or within a vertical solution stack. Following an open architecture development strategy, Envision’s automated embed link generation and developer API’s simplify integration to web applications and third party solutions.

“Flexibility and ease of use are a big part of what defines Envision,” says Yeshwant Mummaneni, Altair’s Senior Vice President of Analytics. “These attributes transpire not only in its user interface, with the ability to build dashboards in minutes and modify layout with a few clicks, but also in Envision’s ability to integrate with other applications in a very seamless and easy fashion.”

Envision is now generally available at EnvisionBI.com and is also accessible to Altair’s 5,000+ customers through its renowned HyperWorks unit-based licensing system. For on-premises implementations and third party integrations, Envision is available through solidThinking’s global partner network by contacting Envision-Info@solidThinking.com.

To learn more about Envision, register for our upcoming introductory webinar, which will be hosted on July 26, 2016.
