NetSuite plans ERP for Google Apps Marketplace

NetSuite is joining what is beginning to look like a stampede towards the Google Apps Marketplace.

Cloud application provider NetSuite has announced it will soon offer a version of its web-based ERP software through the Google Apps Marketplace.

"NetSuite is committed to bringing the power of cloud computing to businesses, so integrating with Google Apps is a logical choice for us," said NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson.

"By adding NetSuite to the Google Apps Marketplace, we plan to make it extremely easy for Google Apps customers to get a powerful cloud computing ERP application that works seamlessly with their technology platforms," he added.

NetSuite incorporates accounting, inventory, supply chain, order management, CRM and ecommerce functionality.

It is not clear from the company's announcement whether there will be any substantial changes in NetSuite for Google Apps, or if the plan is to simply take advantage of a single sign on for Google Apps, NetSuite and other applications from the Google Apps Marketplace.

What was Google's reaction to the news? Please read on.

"We are very excited to soon be offering NetSuite in the Google Apps Marketplace," said Scott McMullan, Google Apps partner lead for Google Enterprise.

"Through the Google Apps Marketplace, software vendors like NetSuite are helping us build a rich ecosystem of integrated business apps that work seamlessly with Google Apps, allowing IT administrators to leverage the benefits of cloud computing and extend Google Apps to meet more of their business needs," he added.

(There's the word 'ecosystem' again - Google Apps Marketplace sounds rather like the 'Enterprise Apps Store' concept being promoted by Capgemini.)
