Altair to Acquire RapidMiner, Continuing Expansion of Broad Data Analytics Portfolio

Altair | September 14, 2022

Altair ( Nasdaq: ALTR), a global leader in computational science and artificial intelligence (AI), signed a definitive agreement to acquire RapidMiner, a leader in advanced data analytics and machine learning (ML) software. RapidMiner's low-code platform is used by more than one million people of all skill levels to develop production-scale data pipelines and ML models, putting advanced data analytics into the hands of those who know the domain problems best. It provides hundreds of powerful, drag-and-drop building blocks to transform and augment data – greatly accelerating work for coders and non-coders alike – and its flexible delivery models provide users and enterprises with the scale they need, from a user's desktop to on-premises servers to secure, multi-tenant cloud. "This acquisition significantly strengthens Altair's end-to-end data analytics (DA) portfolio, which already offers customers the power to understand, transform, act on, and automate their data, Machine learning is becoming an essential part of business, but often the barriers to building ML models are too high to get started. Too much data, not enough data science expertise, and insecure or unscalable production environments can all keep a business from executing on their data analytics vision. That's where RapidMiner can be transformative." -James R. Scapa, founder and chief executive officer, Altair. RapidMiner's cloud platform takes the best of RapidMiner desktop and adds the strength of the cloud, bringing additional scale and governance to the low-code platform. This multi-tenant, SaaS-ready version enables organizations to ramp up their data science workloads easily and safely. RapidMiner resonates with users in the data analytics community due to its talented, hands-on technical team with decades of experience, led by founder and chief technology officer Dr. Ingo Mierswa, who will join Altair. Under Mierswa's leadership, RapidMiner pioneered the entire concept of visual, explainable data science, and was the first platform to introduce automatic data science, text analytics, automated feature engineering, deep learning, and more. "Altair and RapidMiner share the same vision to make data analytics simple enough for all users, but scalable, governed, and safe enough for all enterprises, We see this as an incredibly exciting opportunity to watch our solutions grow across the globe and expand into a larger, more powerful ecosystem." -Dr. Ingo Mierswa,founder and chief technology officerRapidMiner. RapidMiner reinforces Altair's DA market position in several verticals – especially manufacturing and financial services – through industry expertise and industry-specific ML techniques and data source connections. Sitting next to dozens of existing Altair products already in these verticals, RapidMiner presents an exciting new offering for new and existing customers who will be able to access existing Altair and RapidMiner products easily through Altair's unique units licensing model. RapidMiner will be integrated with existing tools, such as Altair Knowledge Studio, Altair SmartWorks, and Altair SLC, to provide a comprehensive, code-optional, multi-language, SaaS-ready, cloud-scale platform for enterprise data analytics and data science. About Altair: Altair is a global leader in computational science and artificial intelligence (AI) that provides software and cloud solutions in simulation, high-performance computing (HPC), data analytics, and AI. Altair enables organizations across all industries to compete more effectively and drive smarter decisions in an increasingly connected world – all while creating a greener, more sustainable future.

PermitFlow Announces their Construction Permit Software Integration on Procore’s Marketplace

Procore | October 21, 2022

PermitFlow, a construction permit application and management software for builders and owners, today announced a new embedded experience integration for use with Procore Technologies, Inc., (NYSE: PCOR), a leading global provider of construction management software. PermitFlow’s purpose-built software allows builders and owners the ability to easily prepare and submit permit applications, respond to municipal comments, and receive approvals all in one platform. Rather than juggling through the unique processes of municipalities, builders can use PermitFlow’s standardized, nationwide permit application workflow. By surfacing municipal requirements and digitizing the permit process, PermitFlow saves applicants’ time, minimizes errors, and shortens municipal review cycles — resulting in a faster time to permit. The PermitFlow Embedded App Experience enables Procore’s users to manage the entire construction and building permit process conveniently within Procore. Unwieldy spreadsheets and document trackers can be replaced with PermitFlow’s in-app permit log and management platform. Construction teams can easily stay up to date with automated reminders, follow-ups, and permit expiration alerts to avoid any surprises. “Our mission at PermitFlow is to make permitting faster and more reliable, America is facing a housing and infrastructure crisis and yet municipalities struggle with staffing shortages and are backlogged with work. It’s imperative that we streamline the process for applicants who grapple with the differences and complexities of each municipality. In many jurisdictions, permitting continues to be one of the top causes of construction delays.” -Francis Thumpasery, CEO at PermitFlow. Managing the permitting process is challenging, said Doug Gibson, Senior Business Development Manager at Procore. PermitFlow’s launch on the Procore marketplace will provide a dedicated solution for construction permitting within the Procore platform. Their solution will help construction teams simplify the entire permitting process and stay focused on the project at hand. “PermitFlow’s Embedded Experience is simple and easy to install and access through Procore’s App Marketplace, Procore users have eagerly waited for this launch, as the ability to digitize and automate many of their existing permit processes has been especially attractive. The efficiency gains that we can offer to both builders and AHJs will help to accelerate the overall building process in the United States.” -Samuel Lam, CTO at PermitFlow. About PermitFlow: PermitFlow is the first construction permit application and management platform for builders and owners. We are on a mission to streamline and simplify construction permitting in the United States, unlocking more value in the $1.6 trillion construction market.
