Marketo has published its January 2020 release notes for its Marketo Engage Adobe application. The release is scheduled for Friday, January 17 at 6 PM PT.

Key updates will be rolling out across the core Marketo Engage Adobe Application and Account-Based Marketing (ABM) tools. The planned update includes enhancements to the Microsoft Dynamics integration that will allow for real-time syncing of leads and contacts between Marketo Engage and Microsoft Dynamics, LinkedIn lead-generation forms with additional field mapping and multi-instance management capabilities.

Why we care

The changes should help sales and marketing users improve their management of customer and prospect data between Microsoft Dynamics and Marketo Engage. Additional LinkedIn field mapping should help users build more robust customer profiles and identify better prospects.

Marketo’s latest ABM solution, New Account Discovery, will also be launching in beta. The solution is designed to help sales users discover net-new targets using Adobe’s AI-driven customer profile model.
