News Metacomp Technologies, Inc. , a leader in Computational Fluid Dynamics today announced that the company has joined Altair’s innovative HyperWorks Partner Solutions Program.

The new program provides HyperWorks customers with on-demand access to a wide-range of applications that complement Altair’s suite of applications. HyperWorks customers will use their existing licenses to tap into partner applications without any additional costs to them.

Within this program, Metacomp will provide Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD++), Computational AeroAcoustics (CAA++) and Mesh Generation for CFD (MIME) that HyperWorks customers can begin using without risk.

Altair’s partnership program includes best-of-breed applications and makes complementary enterprise software readily available to customers at a fraction of the cost of separate enterprise licenses. The program features an accelerated deployment process that enables customers to obtain and utilize partner software seamlessly, without requiring a new purchase order or extra licensing agreement. This reduces administrative and acquisitions costs for customers.

By using Metacomp’s CFD++, CAA++ and MIME solutions in conjunction with HyperWorks, joint customers will realize significant benefits in terms of realizing comprehensive physics based solutions for fluid dynamics related problems.

“We are pleased to be a first-round participant in Altair’s new HyperWorks Partner Solutions Program” said Sukumar Chakravarthy, President of Metacomp Technologies. “Metacomp has previously integrated our CFD solutions with Altair HyperWorks applications and we have enjoyed a very good working relationship with Altair. Our two companies share similar cultures, focused on technical excellence and customer support. This program promises to help us expand into new markets while maintaining the close technical contact directly with the end-user customers”

Altair’s partner program is a fundamentally new approach to how businesses purchase their applications. It delivers services that were previously only available to larger companies due to licensing, procurement and administrative costs. It delivers a powerful alternative to the comprehensive product stacks offered by the software giants yet it provides a significant advantage in comparison because it does not create vendor lock in. Altair customers will be able to select best-of-breed technologies from multiple vendors.

“HyperWorks customers have strongly urged Altair to provide Computational Fluid Dynamics Solutions. Now with Metacomp joining our HyperWorks Partner Solutions Community we have a great response to these customers” said Michael Humphrey, vice president of partner programs at Altair. “Metacomp is a great company to work with and Altair is very excited to make MIME, CFD++ and CAA++ available to our customers.”
