I’m really pleased with the announcement of open access to Wave for all at the opening keynote at Google IO.
The IO team at the fireside.
The part that we are most interested in is that wave is availed on my domain, like all the other Google apps. We covered this earlier on Testing Google Wave for Apps. So that means that everyone can start to use wave for organizing their organization. I really believe that there is a large potential for using Wave in organizations instead of using mail to all communication. I have in countless examples seen email been used where wave would have made decisions would have been made much easier.
With our product caseish, that helps you and your group can get at much better insight on what is going on with your status. We see that there is a fantastic opportunity for selling our application on the Google Apps Market place, because we support organization or groups collaborate better. With the apps market place we are able to monetize our application fairly easy since we just need to connect to the apps market place and then we can start with getting customers aboard. We though still need a little way to go before we are ready to launch to the apps market place.
I had also hoped that there would be an announcement on a Wave marketplace, so it also was possible to sell apps to individuals like games or other features. I talked with the Wave team and found that the issue they had with it was the complexity of how such a market place should work. There are defiantly a lot of legal issues that needs to be addressed before it is possible to sell application for Wave on that account.
There was also all the API changes that I’m going to look into in the coming weeks.
