Business Strategy and Outlook

We view Autodesk as the global industry standard computer-aided design software. Millions of industry professionals rely on Autodesk software to design and model buildings, manufactured products, animated films, and video games. We think Autodesk will remain the industry standard, as its switching costs and network effect continue to reinforce one another and Autodesk stays at the forefront of industry trends. The company now has over 95% of revenue recurring, after a gradual transition from licenses the past eight years. We think the change enables Autodesk to extract greater revenue per user as it upsells its loyal and increasingly maturing base.
