Greetings MSC Technology Partners

This year has been a terrific year for MSC Software, highlighted by our acquisition of Simufact Engineering in February, two multiple-award-winning MSC Apex releases, and continued solid growth in the products that our ecosystem is built on. I hope all of the companies in our Technology Partner program are enjoying similar success in 2015.

While you are planning your marketing activities for 2016, we welcome the opportunity to discuss co-marketing options with you, from webinars to case studies, conferences to key account strategy sessions. Look for the next Technology Partner e-Newsletter early in 2016, when we have more details and dates for MSC conferences in 2016. Until then, I wish everyone a successful conclusion to 2015, and a well-deserved holiday break.

Warm Regards,
John Janevic
Welcome New Technology Partners!
We are pleased to welcome ten new partners to our Technology Partner Program community thus far in 2015. Two of our newest Technology Partners are highlighted below.
New Software Community Partners
AniForm Logo AniForm’s suite of products for forming of composite materials feature an implicit finite element solver for accurate and fast 3D simulations with anisotropic materials, such as fiber reinforced composites, woven fabrics and unidirectional pre-pregs. AniForm’s innovative approach is especially tailored to deal with high anisotropy and large deformations, and considers material behavior in the forming analysis.

SmartUQ Logo SmartUQ provides comprehensive analytics and uncertainty quantification solutions for simulation and testing. Using advanced statistics and stochastic methods, SmartUQ allows engineers to understand the probabilities of all what-if scenarios, accelerate simulation cycles, quickly calibrate models, and create innovative designs with greater confidence.

MSC Learning Center Update

One of the most critical resources that MSC provides its Technology Partners to complement software licenses is access to MSC’s Learning Center. MSC’s Learning Center encompasses both Instructor-Led Training and e-Learning.

Instructor-Led Training:  MSC Technology Partners are eligible to attend scheduled public training courses at no charge, on a space-available basis. Contact us at for specific instructions on how to register for Instructor-Led Training courses.

e-Learning: as customer interest in online learning rapidly accelerates, we now have over 23 courses available in an interactive e-Learning format, covering our core products such as MSC Nastran, Marc, Adams, as well as many others.  MSC Technology Partners are eligible to purchase e-Learning subscriptions at a deeply discounted rate.
