Autodesk revenue and net income down in second quarter

Autodesk revenue and net income down in second quarter | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it

Revenue for Autodesk’s second fiscal quarter of 2014 (ending July 31, 2013) was $562 million, down 1% from the year-ago quarter. License revenue was $313 million, down 6%, while subscription revenue was $249 million, up 6%. 

Revenue by regions:

EMEA: $202 million, down 4% year-over-year; flat on a constant currencies basis.Americas: $202 million, up 1.5% year-over-year. Growth in the US was offset by decline in Canada.Asia Pacific: $158 million, down 1.8% year-over-year, but up 4% on a constant currencies basis. Japan was the strong market in this region during the quarter.

Revenue by division:

Platform Solutions and Emerging Business: $197 million, down 8.7%.AEC: $177 million, up 8.5%.Manufacturing: $144 million, up 2%.Media and Entertainment: $43 million, down 12%.

AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT still make up about 30% of revenue.


Jed Fisher's insight:

Always good to watch market data and look at trends, thanks Gfxspeak.

Architosh did a very good analysis on the results 
http://architosh.com/2013/08/cad-business-autodesk-quarterly-results-and-nemetschek-board-news/

Let me quote 
"Autodesk is going through a challenging array of transitions. At AIA the company told us that the cloud is front and center for the whole of the company and we are able to see that in its many mobile iOS based offerings, most of which link mobile to its 360 branded cloud. Any kind of transition which reflects fundamental adaptations to disruptive technology innovation will cause a leader in particular to make at least a few minor slips if not some major ones. The company appears to be tackling a lot of issues at the same time. Part of that fact is that the company has acquired so much of its technology product portfolio–versus develop it in-house–that they must wrestle with numerous development-side issues which can often slow down implementations of strategic visions.

Another interesting feature of this latest chapter in the Autodesk life is its tumbling M&E (Media and Entertainment) division. The final results of this division are in contrast to the results of many of its key rivals who are independents or subsidiaries of larger companies. For instance, the Nemetschek Group’s subsidiary Maxon Computer posted 9 percent year-over-year (YoY) growth from its flagship CINEMA 4D product line, a key rival to many of Autodesk’s M&E division products. One begins to wonder if Autodesk acquired too many products that actually compete for the same space in the market and if the “cost” of driving synergy and unification within their large portfolio is now hurting the company. Other companies with smaller product lines don’t have to exhaust engineering resources on getting disparate products to talk to each other and communicate within a unification scheme.

The Cl3ver 3D content authoring site is a project funded by Wayra, an accelerator fund backed by Spain's Telefonica. The young company is making the rounds of potential funders.
Jed Fisher's insight:

Nice job by Cl3ver but the first sentence is key "The boom is coming … another one. Web standards, HTML5, and WebGL are enabling smart young companies to take 3D online."

This is indeed the truth. 

At 4D Pipeline, we've helped many companies create great 3D WebGL experiences. What is best about it is not only have we helped create great 3D WebGL experiences but UNIQUE and VALUABLE great 3D WebGL experiences.

WebGL and mobile allow young companies to take an idea to market that is rich, visual, immersive, and interactive. No longer do you need a team of 60, instead you do it with 1 or 2 developers in a couple of months. 

Take you idea to market today. Time waits for no one!

Approaching Mobile UX – A Product Manager’s Perspective

Approaching Mobile UX – A Product Manager’s Perspective | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it

When building the mobile interface for their existing products, Product Managers are faced with quite a few perplexing questions, especially related to the user experience on mobile. A report from ZDNet says UX is one of the most critical concerns for enterprises looking to develop mobile apps while another study points out that users prefer usability and good user experience over brand names.

Jed Fisher's insight:

Nice UX Design article on one of my old favorite PM websites. 

Anyone and everyone working on a mobile App needs to approach it in a unique way. If you are not a "mobile guy" become one, or at least buy an iPhone and give yourself some time with classic mobile UX Apps like Paper, Flipbook, Twitter, and so forth.

This article summarizes some of the key things to keep in mind, in particular - *Mobile application use is interrupt driven*.

If you've not gone mobile, or your mobile app is not working, give me a yell. 
Today, people think "is there an App for this" more than ever before. While web is not dead, mobile is damn sure convenient and in general a lot more pleasurable and personal to use.

Design and think mobile first.

COMPUTING in the 1990s was dominated by a fight between Netscape and Microsoft over who would control people's online experience via the web browser on their computers. Yet the battle that got Microsoft into so much antitrust trouble didn't end but faded away: its browser market share has plummeted, first because of competition from Mozilla Firefox, and over the past five years from Google Chrome.

If you want to make money from apps, forget about the app store

If you want to make money from apps, forget about the app store | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it
Considering the number of free apps that clutter the world's many app stores and the pittance paid by mobile advertising networks to app developers, it was only natural that app makers would find other ways to make money from creating mobile...
Jed Fisher's insight:

Gone are the days of writing a simple App/Game and charging $1 for it to make a million...

The App Store is now incredibly competitive and the biggest challenge is route to market and just being found.

Even when your App is found it's hard to charge for it. One, people now expect and want "free", and two, because of the very nature of an App. i.e. An App should solve a single serve need, i.e. do one thing (point solution) really well. 

The challenge from a business model point of view is it's hard to charge for this and hard to defend against (someone else doing the same thing). 

So instead aim to solve a *complete* customer workflow (or workflows), this is valuable, this is significant. To do this however often (not always) requires more than just an App, it requires a platform of sorts. The advantage of doing all this work is it opens the door for different business models (SaaS, etc) and is also easier to defend against.

As always, the best rule of thumb is to *solve a customer need*. If you do this, you can make money from it. Guaranteed.

Tech change: BIM makes construction look more like manufacturing

Tech change: BIM makes construction look more like manufacturing | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it

The construction industry is in for a “contractor-led revolution” as the greater adoption by building contractors of building information modelling (BIM) – software that permits collaborative work all along the design and construction – makes them do more assembly of prefabricated components onsite, rather than building structures out of raw material, a director of software company McGraw Hill Construction says....

When I sat down to wireframe this app, what I thought should be a simple exercise of translating views to a larger screen turned into a big challenge.Creating an iPad UI is hard, I learned—harder than it is for the iPhone [1]. Designing for the iPhone is wonderfully elemental. Imagine if websites had no sidebars—all you saw on a page was the most important, essential content. That’s what it’s like on the iPhone; it makes things easier.

But on the iPad, you have 8x as much screen space to fill...

Jed Fisher's insight:

It's Friday and hence time for a UX Design article!

At 4D Pipeline we help our customer create great products (including a lot of Apps). 

The 4D’s in our name highlight what we are all about (Define, Design, Develop, Deploy). These make up the phases of a product design process.

Of the 4 D's, the one which I personally find the most challenging and recognize we have the most room to still improve is Design - UX. 

Thankfully we've now got some awesome designers on our team but nevertheless I'm a big believer in continuous improvement.

This is a good article to illustrate isome of the UX challenges for when designing an iPad app.

Dassault's 3DExperience "IFWE Compass"

Dassault's 3DExperience "IFWE Compass" | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it

V6R2014 Release Brings the "IFWE Compass" New User Experience in All Applications and also Additional Cloud Offerings

Jed Fisher's insight:

While I would not say this is "new" (I first blogged about 3D Experience and then the "If We" platform 1-2 years ago), it is still very interesting.

It's interesting for many reason, firstly because Dassault has decided to do an entire platform product launch and draw so much attention to this. Why? Because the "new" Apps world matters. The App experience matters. 

We (customers and users) increasing think "is there an App for this?". We want a simple solution for the single individual task we need to do in an innovative mobile way.

In an ideal world these Apps are connected to the platforms we use on a daily basis. Although the App is simple, the experience is quite rich due to the dynamics and depth of the platform (made up of many apps, shared content, and a realtime mobile experience with multiple collaborators). It is for these reasons that this is worth taking a look at.

Steve Blank on "Play it forward" culture

Steve Blank on "Play it forward" culture | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it

Silicon Valley has a “pay-it-forward” culture where we try to help each other without asking for anything in return. It’s a culture that emerged in the 60’s semiconductor business when competitors would help each other solve bugs in their chip fabrication process. It continued in the 1970’s with the emergence of the Homebrew Computer Club, and it continues today. Since I teach, I tend to prioritize my list of meetings with first my current students, then ex-students, then referrals from VC firms I’ve invested in, and then others. But still with that list, and now with a thousand plus ex-students, I have more meeting requests than I possibly can handle. (One of the filters I thought would keep down the meetings is have meetings at the ranch; an hour from Stanford on the coast, but that hasn’t helped.)

Jed Fisher's insight:

Steve Blank is always fantastic, this article is actually titled "How to Get Meetings with People Too Busy to See You", however I've highlighted the part about "play it forward" culture. 

Play it forward, or "good karma" is something that I would like to think I've always done. It's only in recent years that I've come come across the term and heard it's history, Blank provided the best summary of it.

What amazes me is that this is not "standard practice" all over the world. Some people just don't get it!?! Thankfully though many people do get it and the movement is spreading. Let's spread the word, let's share the good Karma, and let's play it forward! Let's #domore

As BIM adoption continues to grow, the standards and technology that support BIM are becoming more integrated...new "Lifecycle BIM" applications, such as EcoDomus and YouBIM, are emerging to more fully integrate CMMS and CAFM solutions into a data-rich, model-based interface with BIM as the backbone of the information being carried through to hospital facility managers.

It's taken two years but now I am clearly seeing the trend I had hoped to see. BIM being used downstream, not just for A+E+C but now also for FM and related areas. There is tons of opportunity here, providing occupants and building owners with unprecidented information about their building, their environment.

Jed Fisher's insight:

So many startups and new product offerings go wrong when it comes to watching metrics. You finally get your product out the door, you have done everything as well as possible, but then you fail on the Deploy, i.e. learning and watching metrics to see how your product is doing.
If you product is not working, why? is it wrong market fit or not reach your market? is it conversion, or the product not keeping them. Your metrics are your best friend, measure everything, see what works and what does not. Look in the mirror and no matter what you see do something about it.
This article is a nice overview of some of the basics and key concepts.

Meta Augmented reality glasses now available for pre-order, does what Glass can't

Meta Augmented reality glasses now available for pre-order, does what Glass can't | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it

Over a year after the announcement Of Google Glass, many folks I talk to still seem to be misunderstanding what Glass can actually do.

“It’ll be great for Augmented Reality!” they say, assuming that Glass can render objects directly into your full view of the world (it can’t.) “Ooh! It’ll be like Minority Report!”, expecting Glass’ camera to pick up your every hand wave (it doesn’t.)

Then they try on a pair and realize that… well, that’s not what Glass is. But it’s what Meta is aiming to be — and their first (read: still a bit rough) version is going on sale to the public starting today.

It really is an an awesome headset and they have solved a lot of problems the VR industry did not. Carmack signing up with them just promises more awesomeness to come.

It’s been a little more than a year, and the 2013 IKEA Catalog App, the most downloaded app of 2012, is back for 2014 with first-of-its-kind augmented reality features.  

If you remember last time, there were 43 pieces of content, augmented or otherwise activated. 

And better than ever, catalog readers can place, move and share over 100 pieces of furniture in 3-D Augmented Reality. 

 

Jed Fisher's insight:

Ikea has just rolled out some significant updates to their Augmented Reality Catalog.
Many people have asked me if this functionality results in more business and better customer engagement.

 

To me the case is clear. Watch the IKEA keynote at the Metaio AR Conference in late 2012, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkDdNcs6ICI&list=PLhbJZa1uXeu66ek4nKEsaJ-SKcYDvAJOJ&index=5

 

You will hear the presenter quote the following stats

- the most downloaded App of 2012

- Great App feedback

- 8 mins usage compared to 3 minute usage

- 5M downloads (mid 2012)

- 30% new users

- 35% increase in scanning. 

- 4.5 out of 5 in App store. 

 

One year later and we see IKEA continuing to invest in AR Catalogs. 
There is a reason - it works!
