Our company, XYZ has a couple of engagements (lets just say CompanyA &
CompanyB) where our personnel are forced to become part of these customers
Active Directory environments. As we start introducing applications like GT&E
where SSO and authentication into the firms AD environment is required, I
believe these people will not be able to access the applications unless they
have authenticated computer and user accounts in the domain with the
application. What is Microsoft's best practice for Joining Computers to other
organization's domain and then switching them back to original XYZ Domain? I
understand there are many steps involved, some network (DNS) settings that
need to be switched back and forth as well as actual steps in joining the
computer to domain.

Do we use a...
Inter Forest Trust between organizations?
ADFS? (for extending Active Directory environment)
Or are there any third party tools or Microsoft tools available for
simplifying the steps of Network / Domain Switching between organizations?

Domain or Forest Trust is the best option here i think. It makes lower since
of what domain the computer is joined to.. since users can logon to all
trusted domains.

first thing that comes to mind is create a trust as one of the
solutions you already mentioned
