This article is stating that by 2011, there will be 1 billion mobile workers in the world and 75% of the U.S. workforce will be mobile. I take that as meaning telecommuters plus workers who travel heavily for their job.
The usual causes for the trend are outlined in the article (reduced corporate real estate costs, proliferation of wi-fi availability, etc.), but for the first time that I can recall, the article states that companies who embrace it will enjoy a competitive advantage, not just happy workers and reduced costs:
“Organizations deploying mobile solutions enjoy a strategic competitive advantage over their competitors who have not invested in integrating mobility into their cultural roadmap.”
