Autodesk, Inc. is an American multinational software corporation that makes software for the architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, education, media, and entertainment industries.
Did you know that it is possible for a company to completely transform its revenue model, without disrupting business operations? This is exactly what Autodesk accomplished, with the help of the Denodo Platform. But that was just the beginning.
A Seamless Transformation
Autodesk had been operating with a perpetual licensing model for years, but wanted to switch to the more modern subscription-based model. However, the company’s legacy operational data warehouse could not support this critical change without downtime. The Denodo Platform’s data virtualization capabilities enabled Autodesk to establish a logical data warehouse, capable of providing real-time access to data from the old and new systems, during the transition.
Once the transformation was complete, the new logical warehouse architecture provided other, continuing benefits: By establishing a unified layer for accessing Autodesk’s disparate sources, it facilitated regulatory compliance, as well as collaboration between the business and IT. It also enabled near-real-time payment processing, which was just not possible before.
The Denodo Platform improved our agility, performance, and profitability.
