Pretty good article.
I'm curious to see if they end up rolling out to all customers by the end of 2016 like they projected. If a quarterly release took almost a month, I'm not sure this is going to go much more smoothly. I've also been trying to get on the beta for over a month, and either my account manager isn't pushing it forward, or they aren't ready to move more people onto it.
What information I gathered at Summit, and from my AR, was that only certain pieces of the package were rolled out to particular clients for testing. The full deployment was still to come.
I believe they are getting some clients (larger I would assume) on the first & second rounds that are to roll out this month and next month.
I am hoping to be on that list, but have yet to hear back with any confirmation.
From what I gathered they had already selected companies to beta test the system and only those individuals had it. I'm not looking for it until the beginning of the year honestly based on how long the spring release took.
You can ask for a Beta by filling out the Beta form from your account rep. They may only offer this to certain companies.
We're trying to get someone to meet with us and explain the process and even that's complicated. We were asked if we wanted it but not told what happens if we say Yes.
Are you referring to getting on Orion?
We all will eventually, but you must build a case with your Marketo Account Rep.
We've done such a thing, well over a month ago, and I'm still waiting to hear!
