Brad Shimmin, an analyst with Current Analysis, also noted that the many applications within Google Apps, such as Gmail, Calendar, and Docs, will have to be socially enabled to make the integration work.
"Aside from that, Google will need to apply all of its security, privacy, and governance to the task of managing Google+ data," he said, adding that he's not at all surprised to hear Google is working to quickly push Google+ toward enterprise users.
"For Google to prosper within the enterprise marketplace, it must make Google+ a part of its Google Apps for Business portfolio," said Shimmin. "It is a natural evolution for the product that follows a well-worn path trod by so many Google products such as Gmail and Docs."
With so much to do to get Google+ ready for the enterprise, Rob Enderle, an analyst with the Enderle Group, said he's not surprised that Google is working on a quick integration. But he will be surprised if the company does it well.
"Certainly it's part of a strategy to tie them all together and an important part of [Google's] future," Enderle said. "But I think they should be spending more time assuring the success, security and quality of their products before they focus on... connecting them."
