  12. 12. Sexiness = utility + relevance + communications Framework: Demand curve
  13. 13. ↑ utility • Create tools that improve research efficiency • Help researchers meet compliance obligations
  14. 14. ↑ relevance • Create services that researchers want • Be inclusive of all researchers
  15. 15. ↑ communications • Invest in marketing • Be bold, embrace risk • Always measure success
  16. 16. Roadblocks • Lack of clear guidance for long-tail researchers • Lack of cloud provider policies • Too much focus on decision trees, not enough about the principles of ethical decision-making
