What We Do
Skytap provides Environments-as-a-Service (EaaS) to transform the software development lifecycle and help customers deliver better software, faster. Today’s enterprise is challenged to continuously produce innovative new customer-facing applications, while overcoming increasing change and complexity in IT infrastructures.
Our customers use Skytap to manage, share, deploy and decommission on-demand environments that contain everything needed to collaborate at each phase of the software lifecycle, without unnecessary costs and project delays due to manual configuration and dependencies. Enterprise IT organizations maintain full visibility and cost control over cloud resources, while allowing dev and test teams to self-provision labs and share complex environments with ease, for a lasting boost to agile delivery.
Starting in 2006 in Seattle as a computer science venture of University of Washington, Skytap pioneered one of the first public Cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (or SaaS) solutions for development and test labs, and now serves millions of environments a month to hundreds of leading enterprise customers who share a need to deliver better software, faster. Companies can leverage Skytap’s global cloud lab infrastructure or use other leading cloud services such as Softlayer, while realizing value from workflow management and self-service automation features that streamline collaborative software development in the cloud.
