Effective September 1, 2023, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Marketing and Customer Insights are being sold together as a single product called Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Insights. The original products retain their existing functionality. Dynamics 365 Marketing is now called Dynamics 365 Customer Insights – Journeys. The formerly standalone Dynamics 365 Customer Insights now is known as Customer Insights – Data.
There is no change for existing customers, and they can choose to renew their separate licenses until August 31, 2024.
New customers have two licensing options for Customer Insights:
- Attach License: This option is available if they already possess qualifying Dynamics licenses.
- Standalone License: This slightly more expensive option is for customers who do not have qualifying Dynamics licenses.
Both license types for Customer Insights include the capacity for 10,000 Interacted People (formerly Marketing Contacts) and 100,000 Unified People (formerly Customer Insights Profiles). Additionally, there are capacity packs available for both Interacted People and Unified People, offered in three tiers with varying pricing.
Customer Insights will be available to purchase starting September 1, 2023, through the Enterprise Agreement (EA)/Enterprise Subscription Agreement (EAS), Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), and Web Direct channels.
