What Analysis Programs Work with Revit Structure?

Although this is posted on the Autodesk website, I continue to get the question: What analysis programs work with Revit Structure?  To begin, Autodesk has two tiers to their partner program: Professional and Premier.  The difference between the two is that when you are a Premier Partner, you provide the following, in addition to the base requirements:

Technical Resources Premier Partners are required to have technical staff available to interact with Autodesk technical personnel so they can work together to ensure that the link between Autodesk Revit Structure and the Partner’s application is optimized.

Assigned Account Manager Autodesk seeks to have a primary point of contact with Premier Partners in order to streamline critical business decisions and to explore joint business development opportunities with the assigned Autodesk Account Manager.
The following are partners (and links to their websites) with Autodesk for interoperability with Revit Structure:
