Autodesk announced in 2015 they would transition from “on premise” perpetual licencing model to a term based subscription model, previously referred to as Desktop Subscription, or term-based licensing. Autodesk call this change their “business model transformation” and Autodesk believe that subscribing is simply the best way for customers to get the optimum value from their tools and technologies.
Customers with active Maintenance plans will retain the ability to renew as they have in previous years on single terms only.
Until now, there has been no option to migrate from the legacy “perpetual” model to the subscription model. Autodesk will focus promotions around attractive pricing options to encourage organisations to switch their current perpetual maintenance contracts to the new business model, pay-as-you-go model.
In June 2017 customers with active maintenance plan will have the ability to switch to subscription at the time of renewal. There will be no option to switch from perpetual to subscription except at the time of renewal. Beginning in June 2017, customers with eligible products on maintenance will have the ability to easily switch to a subscription at the time of renewal for up to 60% less than the cost of a new subscription. Customers can take advantage of this offer once per seat of a product on maintenance. The price to switch will increase 5% in 2018 and another 5% in 2019, so the earlier customers switch to subscription, the less it will cost.
Renewal prices for maintenance will increase approximately 5% on May 7, 2017. Additional price increases of 10% in 2018 and 20% in 2019 are anticipated.
