WITNESS 13 Puts Speed at Heart of Predictive Simulation

Lanner's Flagship Simulation Platform Gears Up for Faster Answers and Speed to Benefits
Released: 13th June 2013
Publisher: Lanner

Henley-in-Arden, UK – 12 June 2013 – Lanner, a provider of predictive simulation technology proven to maximise performance and optimise resources, today announced details of WITNESS 13, the latest release of its flagship simulation platform.  Designed with speed in mind, WITNESS 13 comprises an advanced built-in Experiment and Optimise capability to accelerate the time it takes for users to gain the insight into business opportunities and the foresight to act upon them.

WITNESS 13 offers a complete solution for those looking to improve business performance while reducing cost, by enabling rapid development of business models and a powerful simulation engine to get business case building or risk reducing answers to those who need them.

For organisations running high volumes of predictive simulations using complex models, WITNESS 13 will also include multi-core computing support, enabling multiple simulations and replications to be run in parallel.  This means that the speed to results can be expedited even further. 

The new release also comprises an enhanced user interface (UI) with features such as drag & drop for easier navigation and running models more efficiently. For communication to senior management, superior visual representation of models will soon be available via new Quick 3D rendering and extensive VR capabilities powered by Virtalis technology.

“Organisations face a dichotomy in improving business performance.  In the face of increasing complexity, they need to be fast and agile – without compromising quality or integrity,” comments David Jones, CEO, Lanner.  “Harnessing this complexity to the advantage of the business means that sophisticated modelling capabilities are necessary to convert this data into meaningful information, and crucially, facilitate the very best decisions to be made.

“WITNESS 13 represents our most capable and flexible version to date, and combined with multi-core computing support, it has the potential to generate both the most robust and the fastest simulations achievable.”
