Mobile devices (including laptops) are dominating the marketplace, and even some of your offices. These offer unsurpassed flexibility in how and where you work. I remember one of my co-workers at a previous company was managing the entire Network team while he finished his last year of employment on a boat in Florida. He had his laptop and was able to connect to company (and client) computers to do whatever he needed to do. I have to say I was a bit jealous.
