New Name: Marketing Cloud Personalization

Interaction Studio (formerly Evergage) is now known as Marketing Cloud Personalization. The new name reflects our mission and vision for innovation in Salesforce Marketing Cloud. We wish we could snap our fingers to update the name everywhere, but you can expect to see the previous name in various places until we replace it.

You can leverage data from other Salesforce products in Interaction Studio. 

This Article Explains

This article outlines current Interaction Studio integrations with various Salesforce products including Marketing Cloud, Service Cloud, Sales Cloud, Commerce Cloud, and Tableau. For integrations with non-Salesforce products, please refer to Understand Third Party Interaction Studio Integrations.
