Personal Digital Multimedia in the Workplace

Personal multimedia content holds a place within the U.S. business user's work computer, even among senior-level staff, according to In-Stat's Business User Computing Survey.

The survey was aimed at determining what computer form factors and configurations businesspeople are using, in order to draw conclusions about how computers are being employed in relation to media content.

"Overall, it is important to remember that businesses act differently in their consumption of computing devices. For example, 23 percent of respondents continue to use legacy OSs (Windows 2000 and older), which has important implications with the looming introduction of Vista." says Michael Inouye, In-Stat analyst. "It is equally important to note the business users do not always limit their usage of business computers to 'business content.'"

In-Stat found the following:

- Executive/Manager respondents had the greatest penchant to use Mobile Computers.
- Roughly 35 percent of business respondents store songs on their business PCs.
- IT/Tech personnel were more likely to store audio, video, and image content on their work computers than other categories of workers, and coincidentally, had significantly larger hard drive capacities on average.
- Surprisingly, those who identified themselves as engineers had computing devices that tended to mirror the average business user.
