As of July 31, 2016, Autodesk will no longer be selling perpetual licenses for Autodesk Design and Creation Suites. Autodesk is transitioning to subscription-based products, which offers customers a range of flexibility. Primarily, Autodesk is shifting to a cloud delivery model so customers can maintain up-to-date improvements on Autodesk products, allow user to access from multiple devices at any time, simplify deployment and management, and reduce file compatibility issues.

1. Autodesk moved to a Subscription Model – Perpetual Suites will end July 31, 2016.

After July, new customers will no longer be able to purchase perpetual Design and Creation Suites and secure maintenance plan benefits – which is mandatory. Take a look at the affected products.

So why is Autodesk moving to a subscription model?

  • Lower upfront costs
  • Simplified license management and deployment
  • Instant access to the latest version
  • Connect and collaborate from any device or platform
  • Previous version home and travel usage rights
  • Autodesk Account simplifies provisioning

A Subscription Model also simplifies the licensing construct, moving to a single-user & multi-user model, which can be purchased over multiple years at greater discounts.
