TROY, Mich., March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Altair Partner Alliance (APA) today announced the expansion of its offering with the addition of material failure prediction software DigitalClone, by Sentient Science. The first of its kind to be offered within the program, DigitalClone™ will allow HyperWorks users to better control product lifecycles by predicting failure probability throughout the design process.
The web-based software, DigitalClone Component™, determines the future life and performance of rotating components including bearings, gears, and splines. Design and testing teams can interrogate DigitalClone material microstructure models to test the variance of a product's reliability under trade studies such as different duty cycles, materials, lubricants, and surface treatments. This capability enables much more testing of product performance and reliability within program budget and time.
"Sentient provides Altair customers with failure prediction and life extension for their mechanical components and systems within product development, within test, and in fielded assets in real operating conditions," said Ward Thomas, President of Sentient Science. "For the first time, we can help both OEMs & Operators understand the behavior of their rotating assets and how to control them for maximum efficiencies, delivered over the Industrial Internet. The APA will not only allow Sentient's current customers the ability to access DigitalClone software on Altair's HyperWorks license manager, but also provide Sentient with the addition of many new customers, through Altair's global sales team."
DigitalClone Component will be released in two Phases with the APA. Today, the Phase I of the DigitalClone Component simulator will allow users to manipulate public fixed geometry DigitalClone models selecting from an existing library including bearings, gears and drivetrain components. In addition, users may also be able to purchase consulting services from Sentient Science and Altair to develop their custom DigitalClone models. To learn more about this opportunity, email the APA and Sentient Science teams. At the Phase II launch, DigitalClone Component users in HyperWorks will have the option to independently build their own custom DigitalClone models within the APA offering.
"Altair's new partnership with Sentient Science is an exciting and promising opportunity that we are looking forward to growing," said Brett Chouinard, Chief Operating Officer at Altair. "Altair demands the highest quality and accuracy from our solvers and solutions. The addition of DigitalClone's product life-cycle prediction capabilities to the Altair Partner Alliance provides yet another dimension to this client commitment."
Sentient Science has built DigitalClone models in industries from energy to aerospace to automotive and has both validation data and test cases to share with Altair customers worldwide. Stay tuned as Sentient plans to increase its presence in the Altair Partner Alliance later this year.
Available for the last 13 years, Altair's innovative unit-based licensing system allows HyperWorks users customizable access to a growing portfolio of applications, optimizing their return on investment (ROI) by making more than 20 in-house developed applications available by use of a single pool of recyclable HyperWorks units (HWUs).
After experiencing this original licensing model's success, Altair has offered the opportunity for third-party companies to run their own applications under this unit-based system, a collaboration now known as the Altair Partner Alliance. The overall flexibility of these HWUs empowers users via access to the largest, most complete suite of CAE applications available. The ROI increases for users each time a new application is added to the offering, since any of the partner programs can be accessed using the same leased HWUs they are already using to run HyperWorks. This makes more than 60 additional applications available at no incremental cost or long-term commitment.
For more information about Sentient Science and DigitalClone, attend the introductory webinar being held on March 26, 2014 at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm EST. HyperWorks users can download DigitalClone at www.altairalliance.com/digitalclone.
About Sentient Science
Sentient Science, founded in 2001, is an independent company based both in New York and Idaho. It uses its proprietary software and sensor technology to deploy patent pending algorithms that can predict, with a high degree if accuracy, the future life of a component based on its composition material. Additionally and uniquely the company allows a true what-if capability as its users can "test" the implication of various compositions and lubricants before the component exists and while it is in a virtual state. The Sentient team, composed by a majority of PhDs, is committed to developing technology that cost effectively improves machinery design, testing, manufacturing, and maintenance.

To manage complex web services with lots of calls to the cloud, many businesses have invested in Application Performance Management (APM) and Network Performance Management (NPM) tools. Together APM and NPM tools are essential aids in improving a business's infrastructure required to support an effective web experience... but they are missing a critical component - Internet visibility.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
