This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
There's not a way to get an "internal" market like Android has, however there are a few options that you have assuming that your users go into settings and select to allow applications from unknown sources (non-market apps).
I agree with Ryan's answer unless you have users on AT&T (Or any other carrier that prevents non Android Market apps from being installed on the phone).
In the case of AT&T, you will need to side load the apk using a PC utility that will require the user to download the apk to the PC and then install the app over USB.
So you might want to make your internal web market viewable by PC browsers and make the apks downloadable to the PC desktop. If you have AT&T users in your company.
