Autodesk, which is getting close to phasing out physical product sales, has announced it's also going to farewell 925 jobs, about ten per cent of its global workforce.

Let's all hope those are 'only' sales related jobs as the article implies.
I don't think autodesk (or us users) need fewer programmers at this point.

Can't help but note some confusion on the part of the article writer.  There are very few products which are SaaS (software as a service) or cloud-based.
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

I sincerely hope this will affect product portfolio. Less products, more integrated for at least civil infra use. Not software based on used materials (Advance STEEL!?) less project phase based. More fit for building practice. Good luck Autodesk!

TheRegister isn't a very reliable news site. I doubt Autodesks clients are ready for the cloud.

Here is more about this.

More details on the restructuring will be released when the company announces fourth-quarter results on February 25, Autodesk said.
