Thanks for sharing. We are seeing a lot of interest from our clients in building new vertical SaaS applications.

Thanks for sharing your investment strategy.

I am a big believer in your point #3.

The number of apps for businesses will explode and each of them will address a unique need, task or business process. Business apps will serve very specific purposes and will be priced according to the value they deliver. Integration will be the main issue and adoption roadblock. Integration workflow/processes will be equally important in an app procurement strategy.

Distribution of these apps will be mainly through App Stores that will allow companies to discover, buy and manage apps AND integration services. Some companies will buy integrated suite of apps and others will consume "a la carte".

There will be a role for Vendor independent App Stores i.e not trying to build an ecosystem around a core app(s. They may be the preferred route for SMBs to discover and buy these apps.

This is what we are building at GetAp.com --> http://www.getapp.com/
