    Title:
    Future support for Outreach
    Content:

    Has anyone heard anything about Oracle's plans to continue to support Outreach? To my knowledge there's nothing in place to offer a browser user interface and I don't recall the last time I saw any product enhancements for it in the quarterly releases. I get the feeling we're supposed to be looking at Engagement/Marketing Cloud if we want capabilities found in other CRM platforms.

      i dont see it going away since thats where transactional surveys live, BUI doesnt have any admin functions currently so im not suprised that outreach isnt in there.

        You don't need to be an admin to use Outreach. It has its own tab on the profile permissions. I just don't see Oracle investing in bringing Outreach to the BUI because its focus on RightNow is to manage service requests. If you want marketing/communications then they'll point you to Marketing Cloud.

      right but its an admin like function, youve got something that is tied to an actual billable thing (mailings) and public facing css/html stuff/. Its not something you give an agent. The ease of porting all that into a web interface is probably the main hold up on most admin like functions. If they even move that stuff over at all, which i wouldnt be suprise if they didnt.
