TROY — Altair today announced that Herndonwood Associates Inc., headquartered in Bloomfield Hills, has become an implementation partner of Altair’s HiQube business analytics and performance optimization platform.

Herndonwood’s professional services are aligned across four practice areas to provide flexible, cross-functional delivery models that understand and can interact with all functional areas of an organization. The partnership brings a wealth of knowledge and professional services in technology, compliance, audit, accounting, and management expertise to the delivery of HiQube-based analytics solutions.

“Unlike traditional BI tools, HiQube’s rapid deployment on existing infrastructure and ease-of-use quickly brings detailed business analytics to management levels that are most dependent upon this information in their daily activities,” said Mark Stifter, partner for Herndonwood Associates. “We also see potential synergies with our other practice areas and are extremely enthusiastic about the opportunity to partner with Altair.”

“Successful systems integrators and business consultants continuously evolve and build upon their solutions and services to increase their value proposition,” said Miles Mahoney, president of HiQube. “This partnership is no different and underscores the new business opportunities that are possible by aligning deep domain knowledge with cutting edge technology.  Herndonwood has invested the time to fully understand and innovatively apply our business analytics and optimization platform within the context of its professional services.  We look forward to a successful, long-term partnership with Herndonwood and supporting its consulting engagements to increase its clients’ overall business performance.”

“Organizations require the ability to quickly analyze critical information and make strategic business decisions to align sales and marketing strategies in response to competitive and marketplace changes,” said Mike Hoye, director of Spreadsheet Risk and Compliance Services for Herndonwood. “Currently, much of this information is captured and stored in ERP and legacy business systems, but ultimately downloaded and manipulated in complex, critical spreadsheets and other end-user computing applications. HiQube’s ability to generate detailed business analytics from critical spreadsheets and other end-user computing applications aligns perfectly with our Spreadsheet Risk and Compliance Services by ensuring that the data being relied upon is accurate and controlled.”

HiQube is a simulation-driven analytics platform to maximize business performance. It enriches the value of existing IT investments by providing forward-looking insight to realize business objectives.  To learn more, try HiQube live or download a free trial license, visit
