After watching the latest “teaser” video from Autodesk regarding what the 11.29.11 announcement will be at Autodesk University I have to be honest, Rob Cohee does not have any future as an actor. All kidding aside, this could be some very different technology rolling out. If I was to make an educated guess, I would say it’s a new cloud based PLM solution that can be accessed from your desktop or mobile devices. I definitly see it as a subscription based solution with Autodesk handling all the infrastructure and software updates. We now see it has yet another Apple tie in with the use of the iPad. It’s certainly showing how strong the bond is becoming between Apple and Autodesk.
The latest article in Desktop Engineering Magazines November issue “Cloud Control” backs up some of my predictions by highlighting some of the shift to the cloud approaches that we are seeing. You can read the article here.
I can keep guessing until I’m blue in the face, but we’ll all know for sure what Autodesk is up to on November 29th.
