Altair Knows Data Analytics

Altair has completed 42 acquisitions to date – some small technology tuck-ins, some large, organization-creating mergers. Every acquisition is different, but our strategy for each remains the same: integrate the people, integrate the technology, and absorb the expertise. With each acquisition, we grow, evolve, and get stronger. Every company we acquire becomes a part of who we are.

So, when I say, “Altair knows data analytics,” it isn’t a product of where we started but of what we have become. We have acquired six data analytics organizations which each have decades of experience and sometimes hundreds of experts. Each of these companies has become part of who we are; we have carefully integrated each team and disseminated their respective expertise to strengthen ourselves. Today, our entire sales team sells data analytics software alongside our simulation and high-performance computing (HPC) solutions. Our entire services team supports data analytics use cases alongside simulation and HPC. I say we know data analytics because, in the broadest sense, we are a data analytics company.

Our acquisition of RapidMiner, a leader in enterprise data analytics, is another significant extension of our data analytics identity. RapidMiner brings another talented team and one of the most well-loved products in data science to Altair. More than a million people have used RapidMiner to solve their data analytics challenges – a number that increases every day.
