Architected for an optimized self-service user experience, Envision democratizes data visualization, exploration and discovery. Users can connect their data to quickly create and publish charts and dashboards in an environment that is intuitive and collaborative yet powerful and secure.

“Altair continues to invest significantly in technologies to enable and leverage exascale computing, cloud appliances and IoT,” says James R. Scapa, Altair’s founder, chairman, and CEO. “All of which are driving Big Data and the need to rapidly access, visualize, analyze and share information at all levels in the enterprise. Envision delivers a powerful modern BI platform with fine-grained controls for organizations to easily scale to support the needs of their business and technical user communities.”

Beyond its data-to-dashboard speed, Envision sets itself apart in the rapidly growing BI market space through its unique ability to be accessed as a subscription-based public cloud platform and as a private cloud BI solution. In both cases, there is no price differentiation between viewers and authors; everyone is an author with full administrative controls down to a specific user’s permissions and access.

Powered by a unique floating business model based on concurrent usage – versus named user – and devoid of add-on fees for server enablement, data source connections, printing reports and dashboard creation, Envision provides a scalable, long-term solution for today’s data-driven enterprise.

These benefits directly carry over to the company’s OEM and channel partners where Envision is leveraged as an embedded technology component or within a vertical solution stack. Following an open architecture development strategy, Envision’s automated embed link generation and developer API’s simplify integration to web applications and third party solutions.

“Flexibility and ease of use are a big part of what defines Envision,” says Yeshwant Mummaneni, Altair’s senior vice president of Analytics. “These attributes transpire not only in its user interface, with the ability to build dashboards in minutes and modify layout with a few clicks, but also in Envision’s ability to integrate with other applications in a very seamless and easy fashion.”

Envision is now generally available at and is also accessible to Altair’s 5,000+ customers through its renowned HyperWorks unit-based licensing system.

For on-premises implementations and third party integrations, Envision is available through solidThinking’s global partner network by contacting
