There is an element of that to be sure. Fluid use of the available
systems has created a "where do I look to define the problem" problem.

Multiple non dedicated systems, multiple users, multiple undefined
locations one defined location. Periodically multiple users are using
the same laptop at a remote location. Need to be able to collaborate at
the level of work on something make it available to a second user +
notify the second user of it's availability. Occasionally, might work on
a copy of the same document from different systems. Email provider
storage to small. System wide encryption. Eventually, encrypted remote
access and email.

I think that covers it.

Hope that helps.
