At Adobe Summit 2018 in North America, we made Adobe Experience Platform Launch available to all Experience Cloud customers. Since that time, we've seen rapid adoption of Launch and have helped thousands of customers migrate over from DTM.
Last year, in early October, we announced (here and here) that we are going to sunset DTM. This means that DTM will be kept up to date with security and bug fixes, but no more feature development work is happening and that it would be unavailable at the end of 2020. We also said that we would be introducing progressive restrictions on its functionality to encourage users to begin planning and executing the migration process.
We are now approaching the first DTM Sunset Milestone. In about 60 days, on July 9th, we will remove the Add Property button in DTM (we had previously announced this date as July 1, but pushed it back a bit because of release cycles and company events).
This change means that beginning with the release on July 9, 2019, you will no longer be able to use that button to create new properties in DTM. This is the only DTM change happening that day. Existing properties will continue to function as they do today. Hosted DTM libraries will continue to be available and function as they do today. Creating and modifying resources (tools, rules, and data elements) is unaffected. Approval and publishing queues are similarly unaffected.
Over the coming days, we will be communicating this message through email and within the DTM product as well. The current plan is to do another round of communications with about 30 days left to go and a final warning at about 10 days to go.
The next DTM Sunset Milestone is scheduled for February 22, 2021.
