Ansys among top-ranked in the Enterprise category
PITTSBURGH, PA, March 9, 2021 – Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) has been named to Fast Company's prestigious annual list of the World's Most Innovative Companies for 2021. The list honors the businesses that have not only found a way to be resilient in the past year, but also turned those challenges into impact-making processes. These companies did more than survive, they thrived—making an impact on their industries and culture as a whole. This year's MIC list features 463 businesses from 29 countries.
Fast Company's editors and writers sought out the most groundbreaking businesses across the globe and industries. They also judged nominations received through their application process. The World's Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company's signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
Fast Company recognized Ansys for its Ansys Discovery simulation solution, which generates physics-based simulation results in near-real time as engineers and designers interactively modify the geometry of a component or alter operating parameters. By empowering all engineers to ask their own what-if questions, engineering processes are compressed from months to weeks, improving productivity by 26-30% while at the same time exploring 43-60% more design variations. Through simulation insight, more "first-time right" engineering decisions are made, decreasing the cost of ensuring quality by 19-33%.
"In a year of unprecedented challenges, the companies on this list exhibit fearlessness, ingenuity, and creativity in the face of crisis," said Fast Company Deputy Editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with Senior Editor Amy Farley.
"Ansys customers are solving the most complex product challenges imaginable – from developing autonomous vehicles to creating next-generation communications networks to pioneering life-saving medical devices," said Ajei Gopal, president and CEO, Ansys. "These customers demand and deserve the most advanced simulation solutions, like Ansys Discovery, to solve these bleeding-edge product challenges. We foster a workplace where our developers can collaborate and innovate to constantly advance the state of the art in simulation."
Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2021) is now available online here, as well as in app form via iTunes and on newsstands beginning March 16, 2021. The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.
