It’s been a busy week in the email universe this week, so here is a short round up in case you missed something.

Oracle announces the End of Life schedule for Bronto. Migrate to another Oracle platform or ESP of your choice on or before May 31, 2022. The industry is buzzing about this and the teams at Email Vendor Selection and Bronto Migration are hard at work providing information and consultation to brands looking towards the future. Migration can be stressful in the best of times, more so when you are being forced into it. Don’t wait to long or you may find yourself short on resources to make a last minute switch. Based on my experience the average migration takes three months to complete from migrating unsubscribe pages, dealing with CAN-SPAM and CASL unsubscribe requirements and IP/Domain warmup. Start the process now and give yourself a lot of runway.
