Animated Powerpoint to illustrate business flows

I have experimented adding PowerPoint animation over the Visio (Gregor Hohpe EAI Stencils) diagrams showing our end-to-end solution.

Just use a Message Icon and show it running along from one component to another, generating side error/tracking messages, being bounced back and replayed, being redirected to an error queue/folder.

Animation adds a great value to your documentation when it comes to dynamically illustrate your business flow.

Great tips! I think the presentation will be great with a more colorful animations. I usually download them from http://www.pptstar.com/powerpoint/animated/ and paste to some of my slides. That has an effect!
