Altair (Troy, MI, US) announced on Aug. 29 the introduction of a new software licensing model for its solidThinking suite of simulation-driven design software. Based off of Altair’s patented units-based licensing model popularized through Altair HyperWorks, solidThinking Units (sTUs) will enable small and midsize business (SMB) customers and the design engineering community to drive product innovation with simulation. Under sTU licensing, customers will have access to all software titles available through the solidThinking suite as well as the ability to seamlessly run these applications on-demand locally or in the cloud. 

“We believe the frictionless access to our entire solidThinking suite and cloud resources through this single licensing model is a market first and compelling offering for SMB and some enterprise customers,” says James R. Scapa, founder, chairman and CEO of Altair. “The new licensing provides tremendous value and flexibility to organizations that are just beginning with simulation, have limited simulation resources, or require a comprehensive simulation solution that cost-effectively scales with growth.”
