Altair Engineering has released version 7.0 of its Hiqube simulation-driven business analytics and performance optimisation software — a platform that is designed to work in concert with an organisation’s existing IT business infrastructure to deliver advanced analytics capabilities.

The latest version of the software includes a mobile app for Ipad and Iphone users, an automated workflow that streamlines data-import-to-mobile-report publishing, multi-core processing to rapidly browse sparse and large data sets, SSL security and various productivity enhancements.

According to the company, business decision makers can use the new app to gain remote access to powerful business analytics capabilities in order to further capitalise on the value of enterprise information.

The app is free to users who maintain a current licence for Hiqube and can be downloaded by the clicking on the link above.

Key additions and enhancements

  • Data Modeler — this new function uses a wizard-driven approach to automate the entire workflow process to import data from any source, create interactive reports and dashboards and publish on desktop and mobile devices
  • Multi-core processing — as the volume, variety and velocity of information continues to increase, this will allow business users and developers to more quickly explore and visualise large data sets and sparse data stores
  • Single- and multi-objective optimisation algorithms — these expand Hiqube’s library of optimisation methods for advanced predictive and prescriptive analytics
  • Sophisticated macro debugging tool — this enables developers to find and correct errors in macro codes authored in Hiqube; developers will be able to trace the complete stack and track user-selected variables, thereby debugging their applications quickly
  • Embedded SSL support — this eliminates the need for third-party components to secure data; Hiqube now offers a native embedded method to achieve https-type capabilities while interacting with the Hiqube server
  • Extended SAP connector — using the latest software development kit from SAP, this can support 32-bit and 64-bit architectures for both Windows and Linux systems; the upgrade improves access to a broader range of data sets from the SAP environment
  • Waterfall chart — this new chart type has been added to Hiqube’s visualisation portfolio
  • Capability to export and import model schemas — this means the model schemas can be used later or shared with colleagues and lets developers bring back model schemas easily
