Do we trust the little App vendor?

Although it’s still really early in the life of the SharePoint Store, it will be interesting to see how and if a potential issue will be resolved. The enterprise market is a totally different one than, let’s say, the smart phone market. Although it’s certainly possible that a one-man developer shop creates a valuable SharePoint App, and, through the SharePoint Store has no trouble reaching a huge audience, it remains to be seen if companies are willing to put enough trust in unknown smaller vendors to buy and/or use their Apps within their own SharePoint environments. We did notice that most of the Apps that are currently available ask for Full permissions, almost by convenience. We’re afraid that this will become the trend. It will definitely help smaller vendors trying to sell their Apps if they limit themselves in their needs for permissions.
