I can imagine many potential customers saying 'but I don't need any

Have a slide (or brief slide set) that _visualises_ (with no words, or as
few words as possible) an integration that is:

* easy to achieve within Plone OOTB (maybe with an add-on product)

* _greatly appreciated_ and _easily implemented_ using widely adopted
standards — beyond Plone.

OK … so the one that comes to mind, which I take for granted but which
colleagues found marvellous (and understood immediately), is: 

* a unified view of selections from separate web calendars — that 'just
happens' (requires no co-ordination between the groups/individuals
responsible for calendar organisation).


* screen shot of two calendars (Plone4Artists Calendar, the new alpha/beta
ones with the snazzy icons and clarity, month view is most immediately
recognisable) — one for Marketing, one for Sales or whatever. Three
calendars, if you prefer

* screen shot of a Plone /events page — with the relevant events from each
calendar titled and summarised (Plone description = what some people tend to
think of as a summary)

* screen shot of a Plone home page — with an events portlet presenting the
titles of relevant events

* four screen shots in one slide, of the corresponding iCalendar publication
in (i) Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, (ii) Apple iCal, (iii) Windows Vista
Calendar, (iv) Google Calendar
