This extensible and future-proof technology provides a collaborative environment, and is designed to work with various analytic engines.

Importantly, SmartWorks integrates the features of Altair Monarch and Altair Knowledge Studio with new, cloud-native and targeted capabilities that offer organizations end-to-end data analytic capabilities.

The new platform is accessible via Altair Units, Altair's patented, subscription-based licensing model.

Altair’s shares have gained 2.4% against the industry’s 1% decline in the past month. The company’s focus on developing great software and helping customers succeed despite hardships due to the COVID-19 outbreak has been driving growth.

Currently, Altair carries a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell). Nonetheless, these product launches, focus on innovation, regular research and development as well as strategic acquisitions will probably help the company — which shares space with Gates Industrial Corporation PLC GTES, AECOM ACM and KBR, Inc. KBR in the same industry — spur growth.
