IBM Marketing Cloud 16.3 (Summer '16) Release Coming Soon

On August 9th, we're excited to share the new IBM Marketing Cloud 16.3 release.

Highlights of the release include:

  • A simplified method to create omni-channel "flexible" databases that can serve as a single database for all of your marketing channels.
  • The addition of an Automated Message Series blueprint to the Programs Blueprints gallery. The new blueprint allows an automated program to be created in the new or existing automation canvases and step intervals are fully customizable.
  • For customers of Social Audiences, we've added Twitter to Facebook and Instagram as a supported social network to launch, manage and track social advertising campaigns

New IBM Marketing Cloud Release Naming Convention

In this release (and all subsequent releases) we'll be moving to a new release naming convention. The releases will follow a "year.quarter" naming convention so this release will be the IBM Marketing Cloud 16.3 Release (16 refers to the year and the 3 refers to the quarter of the release). This new naming convention brings us more in line with other IBM products and avoids some of the confusion around seasonal differences globally.

Product Availability
While your account is being upgraded, you will not be able to log in to your account and may notice some functionality is offline. Rest assured that your data is being captured and stored in the background, and processes will automatically resume once the deployment is complete.
