If you currently own Autodesk perpetual licenses, you are aware that Autodesk stopped selling perpetual licenses and upgrades for individual applications after January 31, 2016. And, Autodesk stopped offering perpetual licenses and upgrades for suites after July 31, 2016. A perpetual license is a valuable asset. But if it cannot be upgraded and maintained, it loses all of its value. If perpetual licensing is not enthusiastically embraced by your vendor, or if there is uncertainty in the maintenance pricing model, then your organization is in a difficult position.
Bentley has offered perpetual licenses and term license subscriptions for many years. Most of our user organizations leverage both licensing models. We believe that you, not us, should decide what works best for your organization.
Bentley will continue to offer perpetual licenses. You will not lose this choice with Bentley.
