Re: Cloud agnosticism
I've run into that a few times as well. Digital calendars and reminders seem like a good idea, but there are just so many of them...

Re: Cloud agnosticism
@Michelle I like calendar reminders. The only problem I ran into recently was misreading the reminder, thinking it said 10:30 when it really said 10. That only happened to me once, though.

And probably a great way to get and keep the audience attention as SAP promotes it's strategy, going both against the cloud crowd and toward at the same time. SAP seems to be onto a strategy that should play well into the future.

Re: Cloud agnosticism
Neat! I haven't heard of that one yet. I may give it a try. I tend to ignore calendar reminders...

Re: Cloud agnosticism
@Michelle: You could do annual or semi-annual reminders via followupthen.com...!

(Personally, I've found that online tool to be a very handy scheduling/reminder hack -- and far more impactful than my usual calendaring/scheduling methods in some instances.)

@Mitch: Nailed it. You've missed your calling as a carrier marketer.

I'm waiting for a rival carrier slogan: "Even better is even better."

@Joe it gets rather timey whimey when you have to consider styles set in a show influenced by its own time while trying to show the future.

Cloud agnosticism
I think this can be a winning strategy. It's how AT&T approaches IoT (link).

It also reminds me of Apple's "carrier-agnostic" strategy that dates back a few years now -- back in the iPhone 4 days -- back when Cupertino was looking to move beyond AT&T. Apple was effectively able to make the choice-of-carrier conversation obsolete -- and instead make the conversation about choosing an iPhone.

That strategy has impacted the carrier market tremendously. T-Mobile -- as a bit of a discount carrier -- has staked a lot of their marketing on this, such as when they had that promotion offering to buy up people's remaining contracts with competing carriers. Companies like T-Mobile are out there banging the drum that carrier choice doesn't matter -- while Verizon and Sprint are even more loudly banging the opposite drum that carrier choice actually does matter a great deal to convince people who have turned skeptic. (Verizon's actual campaign now is something along the lines of "Better is better." If that's not especially revealing of the state of the market, I don't know what is.)
