Autodesk on subscription – news from Autodesk University

December 2nd, 2010 by Susan Smith

A full report of AU will come out on Monday in AECWeekly. In a nutshell, the event really focused on yet-unreleased technology, that are in Autodesk Labs, with the exception of “infinite computing.”

Infinite computing is another word for the cloud. Tw o products for the cloud shipped in September are Green Building Studio and AutoCAD WS. GBS is a natural for this – it has terabytes of data and the cloud enables you to download it as you need it. Other technologies that will benefit from this treatment are rendering and finite element analysis in the cloud, where users will not have to maintain expensive systems to house large amounts of data.

Autodesk’s new subscription program adds value with new features to products such as infinite computing and web services. Basically, users will be able to augment their desktop with point functionality from the cloud. The model is changing in that it offers different services to different tiers of customers based on what they need. The platinum, or enterprise tier for example, will receive a rapid response feature from technical support and also support for older versions of software. The consulting team will also map their process to see how to better serve them.

Each tier will receive infinite computing as part of their package.
