It has been a long time, but I am taking a small break from my busy small schedule to write about the official release of a new service from Autodesk. Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro debuted today in what is another piece of Autodesk’s cloud strategy.
Paul McRoberts, vice president of Autodesk’s Infrastructure Business, talked this week about the company’s announcement today of Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro. The announcement state:
Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro offers the latest 3D modeling, visualization and cloud-based collaboration technologies to help efficiently close the estimated $30 trillion gap worldwide between desperately needed infrastructure and the funding required to deliver it.
As you might have already seen, Autodesk is investing heavily in the “Cloud” and this release is a key piece of the puzzle. Regarding price and availability, the announcement says:
Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro will be available in this month for purchase on a quarterly basis, which includes 150 cloud credits (units of measurement to perform tasks such as rendering or a simulation in Autodesk 360). To accommodate long or short project needs, users have the flexibility to renew at the end of each quarter. Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Pro will be available in English and other languages, and is available worldwide in countries where electronic license downloads of Autodesk products are permitted.

I want to take the opportunity to congratulate the team for the release. It has been a huge effort that it is finally coming to fruition. Now, it is time for me to go back to work.
