Salesforce aligns its products under Marketing Cloud

29 May 2022 3 min read Technology
In April, Salesforce announced several of its MarTech products and add-ons will be renamed.

Salesforce announced name changes to their marketing cloud products as part of their "Easy" campaign at Dreamforce in 2021. The initiative aims at simplifying the Salesforce Marketing Cloud product suite, to be more intuitive and consistent across the stack. 

We’ll cover the name changes in more detail, and what this means to the Marketing Cloud communities.

  • Marketing Cloud Email Studio
  • Email, Messaging, and Journeys

Marketing Cloud Engagement focuses on email marketing, newsletters and personalised user journeys. Previously, Salesforce had offered two customer engagement products – Marketing Cloud Email Studio and Email, Messaging and Journeys— and has streamlined them into one offering.
