News from Altair about changes in their HyperWorks platform. First, what is HyperWorks?
HyperWorks is a suite of enterprise analytic applications that includes statistical, database, visualization and simulation software to help companies make better business decisions. Altair is extending the Hyperworks Platform from 28 internally developed solutions to 43 with the addition of new ISV applications. Customers may utilize their existing HyperWorks software licenses to operate all applications, increasing flexibility and the value of their investment.
And then the news
Altair today announced its industry-leading HyperWorks platform for enterprise analytics has been opened to third-party applications, all of which are available to customers under its revolutionary on-demand software licensing system. Six leading independent software vendors (ISVs) have already joined the HyperWorks Partner Solutions Program, which enables customers to operate 15 new third-party applications for zero incremental cost utilizing their existing HyperWorks licenses.
Something interesting about HyperWorks is that it uses a subscription-based (rather than node-based) licensing model in which licenses float around inside the enterprise boundary.
