Autodesk licensing changes

Cornell University’s current Autodesk license is set to expire. Autodesk has been pressing for Cornell to change from an annual license renewal to a perpetual license with yearly maintenance renewal. After evaluating the short term and long term costs of each model, we have decided to move to the perpetual license with annual renewal.

Moving to the perpetual license model requires a large upfront payment. Rather than pass the full initial cost of this move on to the users, we have decided to spread the cost out over the next two years. This will allows us to keep the annual license price stable until the upfront cost is recovered. After that period, the cost for the annual renewal will go down.

As a result of this change, we will not be doing a pre-order process for Autodesk this year. We have already placed an order with Autodesk and expect to have the new license codes in the next couple of days. We will send out another email as soon as the new license codes are available.

The 2012 license price for Autodesk will be $100 per seat.

We appreciate your patience in this process and look forward to continuing to serve your licensing needs.
