Tel.: +1.248.614.2400, ext. 269 email@example.com New relationship to deliver comprehensive implementation and IT integration consulting services of Altair’s performance data management solutions TROY, Mich., March 13, 2008 – Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global provider of technology and services that empower client innovation and decision-making, announced today that Germany-based IT service provider, science + computing ag (s+c), has joined the company’s Implementation Partner Program. The agreement will leverage s+c’s IT services expertise to implement and deeply integrate Altair’s enterprise product performance data management solution, Altair Data Manager (ADM), at client sites throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Following the completion of the program’s implementation training, s+c IT consultants will be certified to implement, support and develop tailored ADM applications and solutions. In addition, s+c has announced that it will establish a dedicated internal ADM test environment to handle client integration and support inquiries. Altair Data Manager (ADM) captures, organizes and manages CAE and test data throughout all stages of product development. With powerful data analysis capabilities, ADM provides visibility and insight into product performance data, allowing companies to make more informed design decisions. ADM is designed specifically to address the unique requirements and challenges of managing performance data for complex product development processes. With its powerful methodology, ADM is the key technology for turning data into information and information into useful knowledge for business decisions. Its open and extendible architecture with multiple interfaces allows easy integration to existing PLM environments. “An increasingly pressing issue in technical computing is how to store, manage and access simulation data appropriately,” said Dr. Roland Niemeier, executive board member at science + computing AG, Germany. Simulation data management (SDM) tools can solve these issues; however, efficient use of these tools requires deep system integration within existing processes. For organizations to realize the full business potential of Altair Data Manager and SDM in general, it is important to tailor deployments to meet client specific needs and their unique development processes. As an ADM implementation partner, we look forward to working closely with Altair to deliver robust, value-driven simulation data management solutions to our target markets.” “Advances in high-performance computing, the growing adoption of simulation-driven design practices and the fact that voluminous amounts of simulation data, in fact a company’s intellectual property, is never captured or resides locally on an engineer’s desktop, has created the necessity to capture and easily managing performance information,” said Dr. Jochen Seybold, Director Enterprise Solution Technologies at Altair Engineering, Germany. “The opportunity to work with valued implementation partners like s+c, allows Altair to continue to take a leadership role in developing and furthering our simulation data management solutions which enhance our clients’ product development strategies and reduce their timing and costs.” About science and computing science + computing ag (s+c) is a combined service and software company for technical and scientific design and simulation environments (CAD/CAE/CAT). s+c focuses on optimal organization of distributed systems and benefits from many years of experience in the operation and administration of complex Unix, Linux and Windows environments. Currently s+c has 250 employees in Tuebingen, Munich, Duesseldorf and Berlin and networks with VARs in Italy, Japan and the USA. Customers include Audi, BMW, Bosch, Daimler, Porsche and Infineon Technologies. In the 2006/07 fiscal year, s+c’s total revenue was 24.42 Mio Euros.
