Emergence Capital's Kevin Spain argues that 80% of the global workforce is underserved by technology on the job, with 2.5 billion non-desk workers in areas like construction, manufacturing, and healthcare who need apps specifically tailored to meet their needs.  "At $40 per worker per year, it could be the next $100 billion opportunity for enterprise technology," he says. "I predict we will start seeing more enterprise mobile use cases in 2015 that generate real revenue." In fact, Spain's point relates to what Andreessen Horowitz's Steven Sinofsky wrote on Re/code: "Work will happen first on mobile platforms, for both team agility and organizational security."
