At the Altair 2020 Global Experience, Altair presented the new features of its software tools in the 2020 versions. A brief overview of what’s new in each area can be found below in this article or on the Altair website. Detailed information on all the novelties of individual products can traditionally be found in the relevant Release Notes.
The biggest response was the introduction of the Altair One product, which includes in one solution the use of software tools as we know them today, but also in the cloud form. You can use the cloud as a source of computing power for running solvers, as a project repository, or as a platform for team collaboration. Another option is to run the application directly from the cloud instead of installing the classic desktop versions. Due to the use of remote desktop technologies in the background, the offer of published applications will be very wide. The proposed new licensing model Altair Units is also related to the provision of applications conceived in this way, which will include not only licenses for various types of software but also the use of high-performance computing. Learn how the Altair One will look like in a video bellow or on our YouTube channel.
The start of operation is announced for July 2020.
