    You’re totally right Krishnan. The Apps Marketplace was one of the most exciting things I read in a long time. It’s a true win-win. Google is making a little money while simultaneously increasing Apps adoption. I also think this is a huge opportunity for Small Business Apps.

    I’ve been on quite a few of the blogs/forums for some of the Marketplace’s App providers. The feedback from current users has been overwhelming, current users want Google Apps integration. Touting your Google Apps integration will soon be a huge selling point with Small Business Apps. As someone who helps small businesses setup these web-based Apps, I know for a fact that if I’m comparing 5 Apps, and 1 has deep integration into GApps, I’m going with that one. I’m sure I’m not the only thinking like this either.
