Why Altair SAO?

Detailed reporting on CAD and CAE license usage


Altair SAO present companies with a bird’s-eye view of CAD and CAE software license usage plus a hierarchical breakdown by department and region with 70+ configurable usage and analytics reports with extensive drill-down capabilities.

Identify real license denials related to number of licenses


CAD and CAE license denials represent a productivity penalty for too few licenses. Or do they? Altair SAO will analyse denials, categorise them, and ultimately identify “real” or “true” denials related to license count capacity.

Economic value optimisation for CAD and CAE license


Altair SAO delivers accurate software cost and asset allocation. Chargebacks, budgeting, and company spin-offs of enterprise CAE and CAD software licenses become a simple task.

Pin-point under-utilised software licenses for optimisation


Does your SAM (Software Asset Managent) system identify under-utilised assets for more efficient budgeting? Altair SAO does exactly this to fine-tune CAD and CAE software license inventory to the correct size for the current state of the business.

Simulate impact of changes to license inventory


Altair SAO Predict enables "what-if" studies of the effect of changing controllable parameters on CAE and CAD software licensing system performance. It helps tune the current configuration and guides future license capacity planning.
