It’s common, for example, for a rugged handheld or tablet device sales presentation to include a drop to concrete demonstration to show how the device continues operating normally afterward—unlike a consumer-grade device would fare. With larger hardware solutions (e.g., servers) and cloud-based offerings, on the other hand, discussions tend to become more ethereal, and it can sometimes be difficult for prospects to grasp exactly what they’re being asked to buy.
