Default Good Switch deal from CFX to Fluent

Hello,

An ANSYS/Fluent sales guy proposed me a good deal in term of money to switch from CFX to fluent in terms of license fee. I accepted. He convinced me it is better to switch as fast as possible.

What is your point of view?

Time to start the "SAVE CFX" campaign. Let's each contribute $20 and buy CFX from Ansys ...

The word from the ANSYS camp is Fluent will be phased out over the next two years with some of its best bits going into CFX.

Yikes. Buy a code for $ 500m just to phase it out? It would be surprising. OK, so they've really "bought" Fluent's customer base, but that is not a fixed asset, and could easily evaporate. I would rather expect exactly the opposite.

Not suprising that this kind of thing might happen.

That salesman should be fired or at least get zero commision on the deal.

They only shoot themselves in the foot with deals like that because they simply take away revenue from one part of ANSYS to the other. This makes no sense anymore.

You are right.

It is extremely unlikely and wishful thinking that either will be dropped in favour of the other any time soon as long as both businesses (CFX & Fluent) bring in profit for ANSYS and continue to grow.

Future product directions (say up to 5 years down the road) could go anywhere though and is anyones best guess. Certainly any decision in this area must only impact revenue growth in a postive way.

Fluent is in a transition period from Fluent 6 to the next generation of Fluent (7?). It will take Fluent many years to replace Fluent 6 functionality in the next generation code. CFX is not in a similar transition period because they went through it already from CFX 5.2 to CFX 10. This certainly puts CFX in a stronger product position.
