The value of water - waterday

[PLACEHOLDER]

 Today, 22 March we celebrate “World Water day”. This initiative provides awareness around those living without access to safe water. In this global water crisis, the focus here is to meet the sustainable development goal of water and sanitation for all by 2030.

In 2021 the theme is “valuing water”.

Change always starts from within, from “the man/woman in the mirror”. If we start from the premise (a selfish one, from a species survival mode) the majority of the percentage of the human body is water, then we can transfer it to every living entity and have the absolute truth that without water there is no life.

There is no price for water, and everyone should be able to access it.

There are so much it can be done:

  • Reduce pollution and littering
  • Taking care of our rivers and other water sources by protecting trees and the environment around it
  • Support initiatives (by donation or promoting them on your channels) that receives goods to deliver to those that are in need of clean water
  • Consume less water when you are taking a bath, such as:
  • Less time in the shower
  • Close the faucet during brushing your teeth
  • Repairing and rehabilitating broken wells
  • Building filter stations for communities
  • Providing filters


It is important to be grateful for what we have and to have that awareness that it may not be the case for others. Ask yourself some of the following:

  • Have I ever taken water and carried it for miles?
  • Have I ever, as part of the day-today, boiled water so I can use it for cleaning or drinking it?
  • Do I know what a “cisterna” (cistern) is?
  • Do I know what a “tinaco” is?
  • Have I ever had to rationalize water?


Thanks for reading us today, and we thank you in advance if we keep educating others around the “value of water”, and by putting our part to make a difference.

AWS Lambda and containers

Did you know that you can package and deploy containerized AWS Lambda functions? This capability was introduced in 2019. Amazon AWS also provides base images in Python, Nodes, Java, .Net, and other supported runtimes.

Essence of email deliverability - SPF, DKIM, DMARC and segmentation

Recently I attended a lively discussion on email deliverability hosted by Litmus, one of the leading providers of email marketing tools. As email marketers one of the core metrics we often rely on is email deliverability and the discussion was around how to improve the email deliverability in today’s world where our audiences are ever inundated with emails. In addition we often find ourselves operating in a very competitive landscape vying for these audiences' precious attention. Photo by Ivan Samkov from Pexels   Hence it’s becoming increasingly important to ensure our emails are reaching our audiences’ inbox and driving engagement. This is why email clicks and engagement are strong indicators of the performance of our email campaigns instead of just the delivery rate of our campaigns partly thanks to Apple’s Mail Privacy Protection . So let’s start with the distinction between email delivery and email deliverability . This is very well articulated by Dimiter Batmaziam in the Li

Adobe Summit 2022 - Email nurturing takeaways

I had the pleasure of attending a number of sessions at the 2022 Adobe Summit and one of those sessions was by Don Mayberry on the importance of email nurturing in driving business outcomes. Don shared many interesting perspectives on email nurturing and strategies that really resonated with me. Don described these concepts through the lens of Marketo Engage but they can be easily applied using other marketing automation tools in the market including Adobe Campaign Classic, Salesforce Marketing Cloud, HubSpot, etc.  Photo by Richard Horvath on Unsplash Here are the key three (3) takeaways: Don compared the importance of nurturing email campaigns in generating sales to the nurturing of a young plant until it bears fruit. He highlighted that nurturing email campaigns may not lead to sales conversion right away however if done correctly it will sow the seed for future conversions. Don shared six (6) nurture tracks for email marketing.  The Red Carpet Track - An example of this is

Adobe Summit 2022 - Experience Platform

 Our hero image features many air balloons flying, scattered in a blue sky. Each of them has characteristics in their designs that are “part of a whole”, which in this case is an exhibition that is part of a festival. Now, let us leverage this analogy, mapping it to the elements that are relevant for this post’s agenda. Think about the pieces of data scattered through different systems, which combined (behaviour and PII data) becomes part of a whole: an enriched consumer profile that can provide you a “360 view”. This allows corporations to find opportunities, and turn them into value: “enabling ways to engage with that customer(s) to meet a cluster of business goals.” Photo by Lad Fury from Pexels   The objectives for this article are: To provide our takeaways from two (2) Adobe summit 2022 sessions, related to the Adobe Experience Platform and Real-time CDP (Customer Data Platform). Those sessions being S401 (AEP a modern foundation - by Klaasjan Tukler) and  S408 (DMP vs CDP:
