One month ago, we announced the launch of App Awareness Month – an entire month dedicated to promoting Google Apps Marketplace applications, or as we like to call them, Google Apps extensions, and educating admins and end-users on the best and brightest third-party products on the market.

Over the last thirty days, we’ve highlighted 19 applications, each adding an invaluable and unique functionality to Google Apps’ suite of native features, from enhancing project management capabilities, to providing added security, simplifying bookkeeping and much much more.

We promised our readers that by the end of April, they will have discovered some great new applications and gained a better understanding of the Google Apps ecosystem. And over that time, we also made some interesting discoveries. In a recent survey by the Cloud Alliance for Google Apps, it was revealed that nearly 25% of survey respondents hope to see deeper integrations between Marketplace applications in the future. We’re proud to say that each and every application chosen as part of App Awareness Month included a deep integration with Google Apps beyond single-sign on, something clearly important to users and vital to building a useful third-party app.

Thank you for joining us for the last thirty days and to all of the applications we covered, thanks for building such great products!

About App Awareness Month

At BetterCloud, we’ve seen first hand the impact Google Apps can have on a business: extreme cost cutting, streamlined management processes, enhanced collaboration and mobility and much more.

During our time as an independent software provider focused 100% on the Google Apps platform, we’ve interacted with thousands of organizations using Google Apps and we’ve discovered one common trend: knowledge and awareness of third-party applications that extend and enhance Google Apps is extremely limited.

This April, we devoted the BetterCloud blog to educating Google Apps users on the wide array of applications available for Google Apps today. These products not only enhance native Google Apps functionalities, but bring a diverse range of services from CRM, to expense management, process and systems management and more to your Google Apps environment. More importantly, adding these applications to Google Apps allows you to retire expensive legacy software licenses and creates a more cohesive organization.

Disclaimer: The companies that appeared in App Awareness Month were not contacted nor consulted regarding their inclusion. Our choices are based solely on reader suggestions and our experiences with the applications.
