Adobe dropped a bomb on it’s 77,000+ Worldwide customers on it’s Business Catalyst platform earlier this week, informing them of the companies plans to stop hosting existing sites on Business Catalyst on March 26th, 2020. The software giant has encouraged its users to download their data and migrate to other systems well before the switch off date, as the data will also be deleted on that date.
Adobe posted on their forum that no new trials will be created, no new sites will be upgraded to paid, support will be prioritised for platform migration questions, in addition to critical security, compliance, and availability issues, and all sites will move to monthly billing on their first renewal date after June 18th, 2018.
