Maple: A Mathcad alternative

30 April 2020

Are you one of the many Mathcad users looking for a different option? Whether you’re struggling with complex calculations, or frustrated with licensing, why not consider Maple.

What makes Maple an alternative to Mathcad?

• Stronger numeric maths

• Broader symbolic maths

• More impactful visualisations

• Better connectivity to data sources and other tools

• Greater programming flexibility

• Royalty-free deployment to the desktop or web

Both Maple and Mathcad have their own unique design principles. But for many applications for which people currently use Mathcad, Maple could be a better solution.

So, here are six reasons why Mathcad users should switch to Maple.

1. Symbolics: Maple’s symbolic maths engine is stronger and is fully integrated into the main tool. This functionality is developed in-house. This means we have the expertise to continuously enhance its scope.

2. Numerics: Along with deeper and broader numeric maths functionality, Maple is also, in many cases, much faster. All of this is backed up by robust, efficient memory management. This means you can analyse and process larger data sets with the same computing resources.

3. Visualisations: Capable of creating generating a greater range of plots, with many more built-in plot types, Maple delivers customisable high-impact, vivid visualisations.

4. Programming: Maple enables you to write longer, more sophisticated programs. These can be functional, or procedural, and translated into other languages, including C, Matlab, Python and more.

5. Connectivity: Packed with a multitude of connectivity options, with Maple you can read and write more types of data files and connect to more tools. Use Maple’s maths functionality inside Excel; use Maple as the engine for your own tools; or call externally compiled code from within Maple. The API documentation is included in the base package and comes with source code examples.

6. Deployment: And last, but not least, you can also deploy your Maple applications free of charge to the desktop using the Maple Player... or to the web via the MapleCloud. These deployment tools are available at no extra cost and enable easy sharing of your work across your organisation. 

Think you know Maple? Think again! If you’ve tried Maple in the past, but felt it couldn’t compete with Mathcad, now’s the time to give it another try. Get a free 15 day trial and see for yourself why so many Mathcad users are making the switch.
