Devnet launches first Google Apps store

Focus on third-party applications for businesses

Australian Google partner Devnet has launched a Google Apps store. The store is focusing on selling third-party applications that complement the Google Apps platform.

Craig Deveson, CEO of Devnet, believes that the store will continue to build Google Apps' reputation. “The store will facilitate a rounding of the Google Apps platform... we are trying to create an ecosystem where our clients and potential clients can streamline their businesses,” he said.

The Devnet Google App Store currently allows customers to subscribe to Google Apps plus a range of value-added services like Postini mail security and archiving. Deveson said that Devnet was in negotiations with a range of third-party application developers.

“We are not aiming to be a mobile apps store with thousands of applications...we are trying to focus on key apps that fit certain market groups. It is certainly a business-based store,” said Deveson. “By the end of the year, I would expect there would be few business requirements that we won't be able to meet via the Devnet Google Apps Store.”

Devnet has been an authorised Google Apps reseller in Australia since 2008. Deveson says that the first couple of years of selling Google Apps were spent convincing businesses of the benefits of cloud computing, but 2010 will be different. “We don’t spend so much time selling the concept as Microsoft and IBM have entered the market, validating the cloud computing solution for businesses,” he said.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
