The global demand for energy has continued to increase at a rapid pace and that requires a holistic approach to energy generation and conservation. Meeting the world's energy needs will not be accomplished by relying on just one or two sources, but many.

In addition, those sources will vary around the world. Altair recognizes this and has developed a variety of applications, technologies, and processes to enable the innovative engineering breakthroughs that will be required.

"Altair SmartCore was the perfect partner to launch Energy Smart Generation as it shortened our time to market to develop and test the product and later on proved to be a reliable partner to support the product for our key clients."
– Raúl Gil García, Business Development Manager, Unatec

Optimize Energy Production and Distribution

With Panopticon, operators can process, monitor, analyze, and visualize the massive amounts of operational data streaming in from sensors and other devices in real time. They can combine real-time streams with historical data, including time series data stored in high performance columnar databases, to make on-the-fly comparisons with previous activity and develop a comprehensive view of operations.

  • Reduce costs and increase productivity: Increase production while maintaining safe operations, distribute network loads based on real-time feedback from the grid, and deploy field service personnel based on up-to-the-minute data.
  • Improve customer experiences: Prevent outages by monitoring for anomalies in real-time data streams.
  • Ensure safety and compliance: Shutdown drilling systems before a small maintenance issue becomes a major problem and monitor for leaks in real time.
