I am trying to decide whether to buy a perpetual license of Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite Premium or go the annual subscription route, considering this the last time that perpetual licenses will be available. My company is just starting out and we have an 08 version of Civil 3D but it is no longer acceptable. Based on the pricing, it would take 3 years for the perpetual licence to become more affordable than the annual subscription, and a significant savings every year thereafter. However, I am also concerned that we may need to upgrade in three years just to stay current. If that is the case, I'd rather spend the smaller initial outlay on the annual subscription.
For those of you who use CAD products (particularly Civil 3D and Revit) how often you upgrade these software systems?
