Domain migration planning

Many enterprises find their file servers and the means employees use to log into them evolving rapidly. This can leave a patchwork challenge of software resources on various network and authentication venues. Explaining this challenge is very difficult for technologists and nearly impossible for mere mortals to imagine.

Take for example this recent project, in which multiple development streams needed to be brought together thoughtfully for the benefit of one future client access platform. This is an excellent example of how visuals are used to tell a story centered on audience concerns.
