IDC: 16% of workers are hyperconnected

Market research firm IDC, in a study commissioned by Nortel Networks, says some 16 percent of workers worldwide are hyperconnected, using a minimum of seven different devices for work or personal network access and at least nine applications for instant messaging, text messaging, Web conferencing and social networking. About 36% of those surveyed use at least four devices.

This is good news for any firm investing in unified communications, Nortel being one of many.
