What Autodesk’s Perpetual License Update Means for You

Back to Blog


We all know the future guarantees change, and the future of making things is no exception. With the evolution of Autodesk products comes a new way for your business to thrive. You’ll now be granted the flexibility to subscribe to software solutions specifically tailored to your business objectives.

To achieve this new level of flexibility that will ultimately benefit your organization, some changes must take place. Autodesk will stop selling perpetual licenses for Design and Creation Suites as of July 31st, 2016.

Change can be scary, especially when it can affect your business. But there is no need to worry! This transition to subscription-based products offers you the benefits of lower entry price, greater choice of tools, and the ability to pay as you go. Not only that, we are expecting Autodesk to continually improve and innovate its Desktop Subscription, Cloud, and ‘network subscription’ products and services.

We’ve addressed this change and answered many questions in past Q&A sessions, but with the end of July approaching so quickly, we want to hold a webcast that discusses what you need to know about the upcoming transition. We will also go over how KETIV can assist in the transition, and benefits that will excite you and your team for the future.

Autodesk Perpetual License Update Webcast

The reality is, this is your last chance to purchase perpetual licenses before the transition occurs. Perpetual and subscription plans have unique benefits, but we know some of our customers prefer the perpetual license method when it comes to their software needs. This webcast will address what these customers need to know to act before it’s too late.

At KETIV, we’re committed to making this transition as smooth as possible. We want you to feel confident about navigating this new landscape.

If you have questions you’d like us to address in our upcoming webcast, please send them to or call us at 866-465-3848.
