82% of mobile-business professionals plan to work during the upcoming holidays.
The vast majority of mobile-device-equipped professionals plan to work during the upcoming holiday season, according to a new survey from Egnyte, a cloud file-server provider. Thanks to the profusion of mobile devices, including iPhone and Android products, these workers will find themselves accessing job-related e-mail, documents and other applications while en route to family celebrations and while staying at relatives' homes, the survey reveals. With mobile-enterprise applications already numbering in the hundreds of thousands, and expected to grow into an $11 billion business by 2014, many professionals are hooked enough to sneak away from relatives to surreptitiously call up docs and otherwise check in with colleagues and supervisors. And, yes, a significant number of these employees will actually head into the office during the holidays. More than 350 mobile business professionals took part in the online survey, which was conducted by Zoomerang. To access the complete survey, click here blog.egntye.com
