What is changing?
Starting September 30, 2023, we are updating our Kameleoon app and user experience to include a clear delineation between our 3 solutions (Web Experimentation, Feature Experimentation, and AI-powered Personalization). Now, when creating a new project in Kameleoon, you will no longer have the option to select the type SDK and Hybrid experiments. We are migrating these experiment types to become part of the overarching capabilities of Feature Experiments.
To recap, here are the updated project types:
|Site: Graphic or JS/CSS campaigns||No changes|
|Site: All types of campaigns||No changes|
|Site: SDK and Hybrid Campaigns||Merging with Feature Experimentation on 29th September, 2023!|
|Mobile app (SDK campaigns)||Merging with Feature Experimentation on 29th September, 2023!|
|Site: Feature Flags||Moving forward, the new default for hybrid testing – including feature flags and feature experiments.|
More on feature flags
|Mobile app: Feature flags||The new default for all mobile projects.|
More on feature flags
With this transition, we aim to simplify your user experience and consolidate our terminologies since every feature flag and feature experiment is, after all, by nature, a “hybrid” experiment.
And don’t worry! Your data for experiments created with the sunsetting Hybrid / SDK mode will be retained and is safe.
So why is this change happening?
As we continue streamlining our products to better align with how our customers use them, we think it’s the best time to champion Feature Experimentation. It is a more powerful and flexible way to run experiments that realigns our customers with our focus as we chase our strategic goals.
And so, this simplified option will allow you to experiment with both server-side and client-side code, as well as with other features, such as personalization and A/B testing.
In parallel, we will also be simplifying our SDK functions accordingly, while discontinuing a few options related to the “SDK experiment” campaign type.
What do I need to do?
If you are currently running a Hybrid experiment, you do not need to do anything. Your active experiments will continue to run and gather data until they are completed.
Important: We will automatically stop all SDK or Hybrid experiments on the 30th of September, at:
– 11:59 PM CET
– 02:59 PM Pacific Time (PT)
– 05:59 PM, Eastern Time (ET)
We therefore recommend getting ahead of this change and start using Feature Experimentation as your default choice for Hybrid testing starting now.
We therefore recommend getting ahead of this change and starting using Feature Experimentation as your default choice for Hybrid testing starting now. If you want to create a new Hybrid experiment after September 30, 2023, you will need to select the aforementioned “Site: Feature Flags” option when creating your projects.
